Recognizing the contributions of the labor movement in the United States.
Our law firm will be closed on September 4, 2017 to celebrate Labor Day. This public holiday is scheduled on the first Monday each September and is dedicated to American workers.
Labor Day is considered the unofficial end of summer. We hope our blog readers take a moment from late summer activities to reflect on the social and economic contributions made by American workers.
Here are five ways to support Michigan workers this holiday weekend.
1. Write a letter to your local newspaper. Tell your personal story about Michigan workers’ compensation. Were medical or wage loss benefits unfairly disputed? How can the system be improved?
2. Get politically active. Send emails and make telephone calls to your elected state representatives. Volunteer for candidates who support your interests.
3. Stand up for Michigan unions. Right-to-work legislation has weakened collective bargaining and resulted in lower wages.
4. Learn about workplace safety. Do you know basic first aid? How about CPR? Emergency training saves lives.
5. Buy American made products and support local businesses. Send a message with your wallet!
