Monday Morning Music – Garth Brooks: Friends with Low Wages

There’s been a dearth of requests from members and instead of taking that to mean that you don’t want any more music on Monday mornings we’re taking that to mean that you like our choices. Elizabeth chose this song despite not being a huge Garth Brooks fan because of its call to support union organizing efforts in the private sector. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics private sector workers are much less likely than public sector workers to belong to labor unions, and in general, only about 12% of workers in the US are represented by labor unions at all (BLS, 2010).

We’ve got quite a play list developing all on our own but of course we’d love to play your requests. Click here or use the Monday Morning Music link in the Suggestion Box on the left.
