Starting today you can show a little love for the American worker who, between the economy, jobs crisis and attacks on workers’ rights, has had a real rough year.
So this Labor Day, we’re urging everyone to HEART a Worker via Facebook and Twitter and let the public know how important hardworking women and men are in our daily lives. Starting today on our Labor Day splash page at http://www.aflcio.org/iheart, you can share a message that answers the question: Who do you HEART this Labor Day?
We’ll offer suggestions such as I HEART Cooks, I HEART Firefighters or, if you’re in the north country, I HEART Snowplow Drivers. You also can customize the type of worker you HEART. After you select the worker you HEART, you can share the message on Facebook and via Twitter with one or two quick clicks.
As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the I HEART a Worker action also is another way we can honor the many first responders and the thousands who worked so hard in the days and months after the tragedy to care for the injured and do the laborious work needed to restore the Pentagon and World Trade Center sites.
Also on the America Wants to Work Labor Day 2011 page, you can hear what America’s workers have to say with a Labor Day workers’ voices video. You also can sign up for mobile action alerts straight to your phone.
Plus, you will be able to find Labor Day events in your area and download Labor Day FAQs. Click http://www.aflcio.org and take a visit.
