Happy Labor Day

Phil Smith at the United Mine Workers of America was kind enough to share this photograph he took recently of a union miner at the Cliffs Natural Resources Pinnacle Mine in Wyoming County.

It’s a good day not only to spend time with family and friends, but to remember the workers who do so much for all of us … Here’s hoping everyone has a safe and enjoyable day.

Read about the history of the holiday from the U.S. Department of Labor or  Wikipedia, and read a collection of great journalism on worker safety put together by ProPublica.
