On Monday, September 3, I took part in the Philadelphia area’s Labor Day march and family celebration. The march began with a rally at the Sheet Metal Workers’ hall, 1301 South Columbus Boulevard, with Labor leaders and elected officials speaking:
Josh Shapiro, Pennsylvania Attorney General;
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny;
US Congressman Bob Brady, and John Greer, who has long been active in organizing the parade, along with Jim Moran;
Jerry Jordan, President of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, and Randi Weingarden, President of the American Federation of Teachers;
And, last but not least, the working men and women of Philadelphia, and their families.
