It’s called Workers’ Memorial Day, and on Tuesday morning a crowd assembled to commemorate the lives of those who have lost their lives on the job.
Pittsburgh always celebrates with one of the largest Labor Day parades around, but this year’s event had more political undertones than in years’ past.
Memorial Day means family, cook outs and remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can have this lifestyle.
Those members in the Senate and many business leaders who don’t agree with the current state laws enforcing compulsory unionism joined together on Tuesday in Harrisburg to reintroduce Right to Work legislation.
Underneath the pomp and festivities of the Labor Day Parade there is widespread discontent among marchers trying to hold on to their jobs and others who no longer have one like unemployed account manager Henry Lipput.
Mike Pintek was joined in the studio by Jack Shea, President of Allegheny County Labor Council to discuss unions.
