Union Labor History USX Gary Works, Steelworkers -- CBS News
More than our tradition of Steel-working has been Outsourced;
so has our tradition of in-depth News reporting,
so has our tradition of learning about the long history of Labor:
Labor History Part I
If you prefer a "list view" of Labor's long History in America,
and the list of Benefits, that UNIONS have gained for ALL Workers, over the years,
please see my post from a few days ago:

That last video was stark, eh? We've come a long ways.
Speaking of "owing your existence to the 'company store'"
(in those days, quite literally),
I pray we're NOT headed back to those "dark days" some day soon, as the Walmartization of America, continues to take hold.
-- Because afterall isn't that the ultimate goal of all this GOP-inspired Privatization?
of all their outsourcing,
of America's current race to the bottom, that Corporate legislators continue to promote, over Worker dignity, time and time again?

You load 16 tons and what do you get
another day older, and deeper in debt.
St Peter don't you call me, cuz I can't go --
I owe my soul ... to the company store.
