In addition to being an occasion to remember the servicemen and women who gave their lives protecting our nation, the Memorial Day holiday signals the unofficial start of summer. On this busy three-day weekend, grills will be fired up, sunscreen will be slathered and time with friends and family will be enjoyed. The folks who brought you the weekend and holidays also provide many of the items you’ll need this Memorial Day, from hot dogs to ice cream, beverages and yes, even sunscreen. Check out labor411.org or better yet, get their cool app – also Labor411 – for tons of great union-made products. Not only are these items essential for any barbecue, they’re all made by ethical companies who give their workers a voice on the job. “Enjoy the holiday and let’s all grill our way to a stronger America!” urges Labor 411’s Cherri Senders.
