Unions Keep Holiday Spirit Alive

Newton B. Jones, Intl. President

workers now enjoy weekends off and paid holidays is because of the
efforts of union organizers in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the
early decades of the Industrial Revolution, employers like Ebenezer
Scrooge were not the exception, they were the rule.
