Labor Day in the USA

Although organized labor has decreased to about 12% of the workforce in the United States, thanks to the success of anti-union (some would say anti-worker) and pro-business ideology, the nation still sets one day a year aside to acknowledge its labor force — and force most of it to work their non-unionized retail jobs during one of the Biggest Sales of The Year.

Some, if they're lucky, will be paid time and a half for working the holiday. But most won't. So in honor of them, WB reproduces the famous Capitalist System diagram created by the I.W.W. early in the last century (click to enlarge):

Happy Labor Day, to all the workers.
