Happy Labor Day

Today is a good time to remember that the GOP’s war on labor is not over. And it’s a good day for Republicans to contemplate the words of their party leader, Abraham Lincoln, in his address to Congress in 1861:

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
