2. I don't know who said it but some anti union
pig corporado at the end of the 19th century supposedly said that he could pay one member of the working class to kill another member of the working class.

Matewan, and a few other movies such as Grapes of Wrath, should be required viewing not only in unions but in schools. We learn all about the robber barons and they are held up as models but our labor education is woefully inadequate.

I say that if you like the weekend and the 40 hour week (such that it is) THANK A UNION!!!
