What Change Looks Like

Barack Obama at a Denver rally, Oct 26, 2008 - photo by Spencer Critchley, Obama For AmericaWhat does change look like? We can't say it any better than President Obama, speaking recently in New York:

Three years later, because of what you did in 2008, we have already started to see what change looks like.

Think about it. Change is the first bill I signed into law -- a law that says you get an equal day's work -- somebody who puts in an equal day's work should get equal day's pay -- because our daughters should be treated just like our sons and have the same opportunities. That's change.

Change is the decision we made to rescue the auto companies from collapse, even when some politicians were saying we should let Detroit go bankrupt. Change is more than 1 million jobs that we saved, and the local businesses that are picking up again -- and the fuel-efficient cars that are now rolling off the assembly lines with that word, Made In America, stamped on them. 

Change is the decision we made to stop waiting for Congress to do something about our addiction to oil and finally raise fuel-efficiency standards for the first time in 30 years. And because of that, by the next decade, we'll be driving cars that get 55 miles a gallon -- at least. That's what change is.

President Obama’s Framework for $4 Trillion in Deficit Reduction

This is about all of us: Support unions defending fundamental rights

We Are One campaign, AFL-CIOLike so many, we've watched developments in Wisconsin and elsewhere with a mixture of mounting alarm, and mounting admiration -- alarm at this coordinated attack on the most basic rights of working Americans, and admiration for those defending those rights.

Join us in supporting them.

The link above does not go to our site, it goes to a union site: for the Monterey Bay Central Labor Council and the We Are One campaign. We are asking you to support unions directly. This isn't just their battle, it's everyone's.

It shouldn't need saying, but it can't hurt to repeat it: America became the most prosperous country in history because of union labor. Working people came together, braving violence and even murder, to win the right to organize. Because of unions, we grew the first mass middle class the world has ever seen.

The severe recession we've experienced was not caused by union labor. Government budget deficits were not caused by union labor.

Some are just trying to pin the blame on union labor.

We don't blame union labor. We owe them.
