Happy Labor Day #3 -- September 6, 2010

I remember in the early 1980s reading about an independent (non-Communist) labor union in Poland called Solidarity. It was influenced by Catholic social teachings. I figured they were doomed, but they persisted through persecution and martial law. They followed the One Big Union idea of the IWW. Eventually, they won. This is good to remember on Labor Day.
