AN INVITATION FOR PHILLY AREA KOSSACKS

USW Local 10-1 is proud to present "An Evening With Charles Kernaghan."  Charles who?  Charles Kernaghan.  Better known simply as Charlie.  Or, if you prefer, The Man Who Made Kathie Lee Cry.  Charlie Kernaghan is internationally known (and internationally despised) as the Executive Director of the National Labor Committee.

Wednesday August 13, 2008 -- 6 PM
Chichester Avenue, Linwood, PA

This is an open invitation for all Kossacks.

more after the jump...

Not many people in this world have done more to bring an end to the human suffering brought to workers in the global economy than Charles Kernaghan.  He is the executive director of the National Labor Committee in Support of Human and Worker Rights. Charles Kernaghan is the world's foremost expert on sweatshops and child labor. Besides exposing the fact that Kathie Lee Gifford's Wal Mart clothing line was made by children in Central American sweatshops, he has also taken on companies like Nike, Gap, Kohl's, JC Penney, Alcoa, Toyota, Mattel and many others and has forced them to change the ways in which they treat their workers. Also, Kernaghan's partnership with the USW has helped end human trafficking and 21st century slavery in Jordan for tens of thousands of workers making products for the U.S. marketplace.

"Because of Charlie' s crusades... we're beginning to learn the awful truth about workers around the world who are slaving away their lives in sweatshops, who are denied the right to join or form a union in order to fight back a provide a better life for their families."
-- AFL-CIO President John Sweeney

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
