Happy Labor Day! My father started out in the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen which became the United Transportation Union. My Mom was a proud member of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). Without the good wages and benefits provided by their shared sacrifice, I could never have gone to college. Charles M. Rowland II salutes America’s hard-working men and women and join in our shared hopes that all who seek work can find a meaningful way to build the American Dream.
