Laboring Ahead

Here’s how Labor Day was celebrated in word and deed:

Some marched in Wilmington.

Some ran and walked across the Vincent Thomas Bridge.

Daily Breeze columnist John Bogert urged readers to “remember the laborers.”

“This Labor Day not as happy for public sector unions,” the Daily Breeze reported.

The Los Angeles Times chronicled a rise in statewide union membership.

The Times published first-person stories by workers in changing industries (newspapers, music, farming and the financial sector), a commentary about warehouse workers and an interview with L.A.’s top labor leader.
