Columnist Will clueless about labor history


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

Whenever George Will cranks out an antiunion column like the one recently on government workers, he reaffirms his ignorance of labor history in the United States. Will never acknowledges organized labor’s contributions to social justice including the 8-hour-day, safety standards in the work place, child labor laws and pensions, among others.

Speaking of pensions, this is the same guy who referred to senior citizens as the “pampered elderly.” Enough said.
