Labor unions have benefited all U.S. workers

This letter is to Karen Cox and all other American workers regarding the front-page story titled “Local woman files labor complaint” on Jan. 11. 

Please remember all the good unions and what the American labor movement has done for all workers. Unions brought you the 8-hour workday, weekends, benefits, and also workers' rights and labor law.

Union wage rates bring up wages in the area for all workers.
