Liked · 15 minutes ago 

This week in labor history brought to you byUnion Plus:

The 40-hour work week went into effect under the Fair Labor Standards Act, signed by Pres. Roosevelt two years earlier -- 1940


As you vote remember the party and goals behind labor..
Safe working conditions
Limited work hours (without extra compensation)
Breaks and meal opportunities
A two day weekend
National Holidays off
The right to organize for your own good and safety
A fair wage
and many many more...
