Today in Labor History
July 27, 1869: William Sylvis died. Sylvis is best remembered as a founder of the Iron Molders' International Union and the National Labor Union, the latter being one of the first American union federations attempting to unite workers of various crafts into a single national organization. The founding convention of the National Labor Union in August 1866, was attended by 60 delegates, representing 43 local unions, 11 trade assemblies, four Eight-hour Leagues, and two national or international unions. Ironically, Sylvis was unable to attend the gathering due to illness. He became president of the National Labor Union in 1868 and advocated international labor cooperation and independent political action. At the time of his death at the age of 41, he was urging the formation of a national Labor Reform party.

Experts say that economic policies have made it easier for corporations to profit, but that those gains have not translated to more jobs. The sequestration cuts could lead to about 700,000 in job losses, even though it is not expected to impact the stock market. Companies also say that the increase in productivity has made it possible for them not to hire new workers, and in some cases have even laid off more employees. Read more here.
