The labor movement was the principle force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress. Out of its bold struggles, economic and self reform gave birth to unemployment insurance, old age pensions, government relief for the destitute, and, above all, new wage levels that meant not mere survival but a tolerable life.
—Martin Luther King Jr.

    Lots of “what now?” going on aren’t there. We, here in Missouri, defeated a right to work rule on the ballot a few weeks ago, but I wonder how long the unions can survive in this current climate. I’ve belonged to a union since the late 80s and renew my membership every year. It’s for the Screen Actors Guild, but still, it’s an active union. I hope the same for the other unions.

      I was pleased to see the Missouri election results on the RTW (for less) proposition. You are correct, Janet, it is a fight, and it shouldn’t be. Congratulations to you for supporting the SAG through your membership and participation over the years.
