July 27, 1869: William Sylvis died. Sylvis is best remembered as a founder of the Iron Molders' International Union and the National Labor Union, the latter being one of the first American union federations attempting to unite workers of various crafts into a single national organization. The founding convention of the National Labor Union in August 1866, was attended by 60 delegates, representing 43 local unions, 11 trade assemblies, four Eight-hour Leagues, and two national or international unions. Ironically, Sylvis was unable to attend the gathering due to illness. He became president of the National Labor Union in 1868 and advocated international labor cooperation and independent political action. At the time of his death at the age of 41, he was urging the formation of a national Labor Reform party.

At McDonald's, Wage Theft is Just Another Managerial Task
Posted On: Apr 02, 2014
April 2, 2014  | WAR ON WORKERS |  It's closing time at McDonald's, and in addition to mopping the floors and closing out the registers, apparently one other important task helps keep this multibillion-dollar company running cheaply and efficiently. "Oh, we've got to adjust labor"… as in bump hours into the next pay period to avoid paying overtime. Adjust labor, as in change clock-in and clock-out times to shorten workers' hours. Adjust labor, as in reduce earnings to keep the payroll for a low-wage workforce at the bare minimum—and often below the minimum wage. Adjust labor, or, to use another term, commit wage theft.
