Why do we celebrate Labor Day?Sep 04, 2023
thanks for joining me, is Labor Day just a reason to take a day off or is there a deeper meaning. New Yorkers have strong opinions and are weighing in on their point. Why do you think we
celebrateLabor Day to
celebratethe workers of this country? to celebrate unions and the value of Labor in this country, oh my goodness, of working people, the purpose of Labor Day is to support the rights of the working classes, a kind of demonstration to return to work after the holidays summer and recognize and appreciate all the workers in the country, what do you think of unions?
They are good, they are absolutely bad. I think they are good for the American Workforce Pro Union. I am a union member myself and wish there were more unions. I am a member of the union. member of the union, uh, the CUNY teachers union, so our unions go to bed generally well because, because workers have to have some leverage against the powerful and the rich, they could be very good, but They are often too strong and not bad, yes. Let's not go there. I have mixed feelings. Our union is necessary. Oh, there is no doubt. I mean, I grew up here in the '70s and I experienced the excesses of the unions where, you know, you couldn't do anything because you know. requires you to know that the meeting is necessary, yes, because because big companies can be exploited, I think that's how it is to talk about people, unfortunately we can't trust corporations or whoever the bosses are to necessarily be fair to the people. employees if we didn't.
If we had unions, we would be back to the positions of the 19th century, where workers were locked in place for 12 hours a day and paid three dollars an hour. Do you think workers should worry about artificial intelligence? take their jobs, shouldn't workers worry about artificial intelligence? Oh, no doubt, absolutely all of us are also worried because technology is taking over, maybe some of the work, the computer will do the design and things like that, but with the beam and bricks on top they can't fix that Force woman Workforce is the best anyway you do it you can replace the human being with computer systems with science you can't, people should absolutely worry because technology will continue to create that displacement and We need a society should do a better job of helping people to get this place.
We must do it because once that becomes part of daily life, then we will be out of a job. Does that worry you? Yes, foreigner, foreigner.
