Labor Relations and Black Economics

Happy Labor Day!  Today’s episode asks (and potentially answers) the question of what Labor Day should mean to the black community.  We learn a bit about the holiday’s origins and take an in-depth look into several early 20th Century events that shaped labor relations and black economics for the following generations.
