New Labor

Views

I noticed how on Twitter today a number of Republicans were introducing a new spin on Labor Day. As in Labor Day, the day we celebrate job creators.

Unquestionably, the one that made me day in humor value terms was that of GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor …

Labor Day, the day we celebrate … employers.

Look, I don’t expect Republicans, whose party has moved to a place of mutual loathing with the US Labor Movement, to use Labor Movement slogans. But people “who have taken a risk …. and built a business”? Really?
