In today’s Times, Paul Krugman writes a very good piece about Labor Day and how politicians have abandoned ordinary working Americans. I really don’t have much commentary to add to what he writes because I fully agree with it. Income disparity between the the rich and everyone else has increased. Republicans continue to treat those who need some form of assistance with vile. This is wrong. Labor is what built modern America and as a nation we need to recognize that and stop believing that the wealthy did it.
