Labor Day 2006

AFL-CIO. Labor Day 2006.

This Labor Day, unions are making a real difference in people’s lives.

* We’re standing up to raise the minimum wage and fighting for more corporate accountability, such as limits on CEO pay and lavish pensions.

* We’re working for fair trade laws to hold nations accountable when they violate workers’ rights.

* We’re championing laws to make workplaces safer, such as improvements in mine safety following the Sago coal mine tragedy.

* This fall, we're going to launch the most ambitious, sophisticated voter education and mobilization program we've ever run to take back our government for America's workers.

* Working America—the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate for workers who don’t have a union—opened seven new offices this year, bringing in about 200,000 new members a month this summer. Working America now has 1.5 million members.
