Labor has had its share of trouble getting respect

Email

September 6 will be the least respected holiday on the North Dakota social calendar. That's the first Monday in September, first designated by President Grover Cleveland in 1894 as Labor Day. We'll gladly take the day off, thank you, but without any recognition of labor.

Today, North Dakota has around 20,000 union members, 6.8 per cent of the workforce. The majority of states with fewer union members are states in the Deep South.
