Ten thousand times has the labor movement stumbled and fallen and bruised itself, and risen again; been sized by the throat and choked and clubbed into insensibility; enjoined by courts, assaulted by thugs, charged by the militia, shot down by regulars, traduced by the press, frowned upon by public opinion, deceived by politicians, threatened by priests, repudiated by renegades, preyed upon by grafters, infested by spies, deserted by cowards, betrayed by traitors, bled by leeches, and sold out by leaders, but notwithstanding all this, and all these, it is today the most vital and potential power this planet has ever known, and its historic mission of emancipating the workers of the world from the thralldom of the ages is as certain of ultimate realization as is the setting of the sun.
— Eugene Victor Debs, 1904
While we have won many battles, the war continues on for a a safe, fair and equitable workplace where employees are paid for their services, treated with respect, and provided a safe working environment. Thank you all for the hard work you do every day proudly serving our communities and for your support behind the Local I-60. Have a safe and happy Labor Day. — Kevin
