AFL-CIO Parade and Rally on Labor Day
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.
