Dr. Martin Luther King, Labor Activist

Most people think of him as a race activist, but he was really into labor rights too. Those things are deeply connected.

Why should you care about labor rights? Organized labor brought you the weekend and "Eight hours for work, eight hours for rest and eight hours for what you will."

We have lost most of that ground.  We need to take it back.
