AFL-CIO Parade and Rally on Labor Day

As you enjoy your long weekend, consider spending some time with the folks who brought you the five day work week.
The Delaware State AFL-CIO is holding its Labor Day parade on Monday, September 3 in Wilmington. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. at 12th & King Streets, and proceeds down to Tubman-Garrett Park on the riverfront (behind the Amtrak station), the site of a rally from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m.
For those who think that labor unions (or parades for that matter) are anachronistic, I would point out that we live in an era when wealth is being concentrated on a scale not seen in a century. I don't think it's too much to ask that working folks be given the opportunity to organize on their own behalf.
Besides, it might even be fun. Tell 'em TommyWonk sent you.
