We started our annual Labor Day Report almost nine years ago now, after realizing that the Labor Day weekend was a three-day free shot by the union skates, to say any outrageous thing they wanted to say, and to issue gloomy studies — always with the gloomy studies these guys. And so we began the NAM Labor Day Report, thinking that we might be able to gain back a little turf from the bad guys and maybe even set the record straight, get the truth out there a little bit.
Well, we’d have to say this has been a huge success. Click here to see a list of all the outlets that ran a story about our report. Thanks to a great report by economist (and fellow blogger) Dave Huether and a great press shop — every bit labor’s equal — we were able to blanket the country. Still, it’s amazing to see how many publications still opted to publish the AFL-backed whiny EPI study. It’s actually a good way to see where your local newspaper stands politically (in case you didn’t know): Did they run ours, both, or just the whiny one? It’ll give you a window to their soul.
So congrats again to John Engler and the great NAM team for once again hitting it out of the park on Labor Day. Oh, and here’s a link to our report.
