Labor Day Parade Reminds People Of Unions' Relevance

(St. Louis, MO) -- Some people are saying the labor movement is going to make a comeback, as St. Louis' annual Labor Day parade moved through the city this morning. Thousands of people stood along the streets downtown watching the parade, which included dozens of unions, as well as floats and marching bands. Union member Bill Donius of Spanish Lake told the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" he believes the labor movement is returning after a blow a few years ago. The theme of this year's parade, sponsored by the St. Louis Labor Council, was "Unions Built This City," meant to remind people of the importance of the labor movement.
