Special to the SGN from Pride at Work
Halloween might be scary, but what's really terrifying is the thought of a country without unions.
No 40-hour week. No weekends. No vacations. No family leave. No paid sick days. No minimum wage. No health and safety rules. And - especially frightening for people of color, women, and LGBT folks - no nondiscrimination rules.
The Halloween, give a treat to the union workers who stand up for all our rights. Buy union-made candy.
