LABOR DAY RESEARCH
We have just finished learning about the history of Labor Day in the United States. One of the original reasons behind the creation of a holiday for workers was to bring awareness to workers’ rights. Unions were critical in accomplishing this. Although Labor Day is no longer a time to put workers’ issues in the spotlight, the importance of unions has not diminished. They continue to exist and to be an essential source of support for workers’ rights.
Your job is to research a current strike and to answer the following questions:
*****Feel free to research a current strike in your native country.

After your research is complete, you will write several paragraphs about the specific strike.
YOU WILL ALSO PRESENT THE INFORMATION TO THE CLASS.
