Happy Labor Day!
In honor of all the hard-working Americans out there, we’d like to wish each of you a happy Labor Day. With the ongoing debate over the rate of minimum wage in our country, we’d like to share this video from Time showing how its value has changed since minimum wage was established back in 1937.
“We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” —U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis
