just thinking

-My mother told me to never cross a picket line, buy items that had the label ILGWU-- The International Ladies Garment Workers. Unions were important. My grandfather was a Teamster  and called himself a socialist. I worry when I read or hear people denigrate unions. And when I was a teenager I knew the words to union folk songs.

"You want higher wages you know what you got to do..."
We need more protest songs-- songs that demand a living wage. We need candidates who speak about that issue.

I still won't cross a picket line.
