Labor Day, the first Monday in September, was a creation of the labor movement and was dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

Initially, it was designed as a yearly nationwide tribute to the contributions workers have made to the prosperity and well-being of our country. To mark a long struggle for safety and worker's rights.

Unfortunately, due to the infiltration of the labor movement by organized crime, Marxists, socialists, and communists – much of the true meaning of this day has been lost. And it has become just another holiday for the nation.

We are seeing the creation of unionized government bureaucracies that do not function under the same rules as the majority of the private sector—holding entire sectors of the government hostage. Holding politicians hostage in return for campaign funds and voter support. A self-sustaining critical mass of government workers who can ask the government to vote them higher wages, more extensive benefits, less work, or suffer the consequences. The public be damned.

In the private sector, we see a similar story. Pushed on by ever-rising wages, health and welfare benefits, outrageous retirement plans, and outrageous work rules, the competitive nature of American industry has been dramatically affected, and much of our industrial base has been outsourced abroad.

Labor leaders are often thuggish characters more about amassing personal and political power by supporting politicians and their parties with their member's dues – regardless of the political position of the members themselves. Like politicians, they lack that smoothness when they lie to the public or their membership. While big business has its share of shady characters and egregious behaviors, so does America's labor and political movement. Both have become big business for power players.

Therefore, while I might salute individual workers on this holiday, I say that big labor and its unions are growing cancer on the body politic – and must be abolished before they rot our nation into a socialist shell of a third-world country.

History is replete with examples of the Marxist and Communist domination of labor … and it would be naive to think that it is any different today.

So raise a glass to the decent, hard-working Americans who actually do the necessary work – with quiet ability, confidence, and competence – while saying, at the very same time, screw the corrupt unions which are dragging our nation into a polarized world of socialism or worse.
