The Nation and America’s first labor union were founded within a year of each other. Over the last 150 years, both have served as strong voices for working men and women. We celebrate The Nation’s tremendous achievements, while recognizing the work that remains. Across our country and around the world, workers are falling behind, while big corporations continue to put profits before people. Falling wages have made it harder for families to get by, and corporate money funds right-wing efforts to silence the voices of men and women in the workplace. In the face of long odds and determined opponents, publications like The Nation are needed now more than ever. Where there are dark places, The Nation will be there to shine a light. Where there is injustice, The Nation will be there to speak out. Where workers are in need of a voice to tell their story, The Nation will be there to help; and just as they have for the last century and a half, Americans will be reading.
Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO
