Today in 1955
The first McDonald'srestaurant opens, in Des Plaines, Ill., setting the stage years later for sociologist Amitai Etzioni to coin the term "McJob," As defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, a McJob is an "unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, especially one created by the expansion of the service sector."

Good News on the Labor Front as Union Membership Grows
Posted On: Feb 08, 2024
Feb. 8, 2024 | UNIONS | A new report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has shown that union membership rose by 139,000 in 2023. In the private sector, union members grew by 191,000. The combination of widespread abysmal wages and conditions for workers in America and significant wins for some prominent unions, such as the Teamsters with UPS and the UAW in Detroit, seems to have emboldened many to take a stand and fight for what they deserve. Support for unions is at a high of 71%, the highest in 60 years. 88% of young people have expressed support for unions. Labor Press
