Honoring United States Laborers on Labor Day 2013

On Labor Day, let's remember the unfree labor that helped build the US during and post slavery.

On Labor Day, let's honor the exploited labor from the peonage and bracero programs and continued mistreatment of Mexican labor in our fields and factories today.

On Labor Day, let's not forget the contributions of Chinese laborers that despite being singled out as an ethnic group for anti-immigration and numerous anti-labor policies, still managed to bring the US the transcontinental railroad.
On Labor Day, let's honor those that labor at home raising our future.
On Labor Day, let's honor women's labor in its many forms and how women continue to fight for fair wages and other important issues like maternity leave and child care.
