A day for labor, not for unions
September 6, 2011 · Updated 2:55 PM
I read with interest your editorial of Sept. 3, (Give a little thought to labor), suggesting that Labor Day was a celebration of the labor unions.
It’s Labor Day, not Union Day! We as Americans have the God-given right to work. The right to work is the concept that people have the human right to work or engage in productive employment of their choice. History has proven that when the unions get so big they control a country’s productivity that country fails as the industrial leader in the world.
Remember it was Germany, then the United States, then Japan, now China, Who’s next?
