"Hard-working, tax-paying people like you"

This (ahem) alternate version of a 1970s AFSCME union spot has been circulating for quite a while, but may be new to you. It was clearly not meant to be aired.

It’s rude, funny and clearly sums why I support labor unions, especially for what would turn into low-paid work. It’s worth remembering that as a part of Martin Luther King’s legacy, notwithstanding those who would honor him in 2011. Unpaid Chinese stonemasons included.

Happy Labor Day.
