Cool Labor Site: Labor Hall of Honor
The Labor Hall of Honor is a showcase highlighting the life-changing contributions that women, men, groups and organizations have made which have had a profound, positive impact on the American way of work and the American way of life. Established in 1988, the Hall honors those Americans whose distinctive contributions in the field of labor have, among other things, elevated working conditions, wages, and over-all quality of life of America’s workers and their families and communities. http://www.dol.gov/dol/aboutdol/hallofhonor/
