To All Laborers

My father's first job as a married man was working in the logging industry. The work was hard and the pay low, so, he left logging. This page is dedicated to all laborers: those who labor for no money, those who labor and are paid too little for the job they do, those who are overpaid, and to those whose money work for them.

Happy Labor Day

  1. My husband worked organizing loggers for a short time. When we realized he was making less than they were and they weren't making much, he had to find another job. And he's lucky he was able to do that as many aren't.

    1. Logging is still big business in Mississippi. I hope they are now paid a living wage.
