LABOR'S UNTOLD STORY, by Richard Beyer

 Labor's Untold Story" is more than just a book about labor history. It's a book about the history that is largely ignored in school. Most history is told from the point of view of the victors, the powerful, and the aristocracy. The average student in the United States leaves high school having forgotten anything that was ever taught in their history classes, because what is taught is rarely anything they can relate to. History is taught as lists of names of rich, powerful, white men, the wars they (made other people) fight, and the dates when anything important happened. It rarely covers what happened to the other 99% of the people.

A must read if you are at all interested in what Labor Day truly is about.
