Voices from 2019 Labor Day Picnic sponsored by Tompkins County (NY) Workers Center

On today’s Inquiring Socialist program, we’re reporting from the Labor Day Picnic on Sept. 2, 2019 at Stewart Park in Ithaca New York on the shores of Lake Cayuga.
The picnic continues a 35-year tradition by the Tompkins County Worker’s Center inviting any and all to celebrate our labor tradition. The picnic’s theme was “Solidarity”. The Worker’s center provided grilled meats and veggie food and everyone brought a dish to pass providing a fantastic variety of fruit and vegetable dishes.
Over the next 25 minutes, Fred Balfour interviews 10 of the attendees. Why they came, why they support the Worker’s Center, and why they support unions. [Audio]
