On behalf of my grandfather, who worked his entire life in a cotton mill in North Carolina, thank you! He was arrested once as part of a police action to break up attempts to organize mill workers in Lincoln County. Grandmother always insisted that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it makes me smile, nonetheless. Grandpaw Slim, radical! Love!
Thank you for this. (And, I love Carolina Linthead's comment!)
Excellent thought. Yes, thank you to America's laborers.
I am thankful for them and all they provide for us. It is good to remember and not take for granted.
My dad was a teamster (UPS driver). He always said that he never wanted to get into management because that would put him at odds with his coworkers (but really I think it was because he prefered being by himself in his truck - ha!).
It has always been, and always be, the workers who make the wheels go 'round. Great post!http://my6400sec.blogspot.com
