“Ronald Reagan belongs in the Labor Hall of Shame, not the Labor Hall of Honor,” (Reagan to be inducted into labor Hall of Honor today, 3/1 UC) writes David Fernandez-Barrial. “The fact that someone seriously believes that his name belongs anywhere near Mother Jones or Cesar Chavez shows an incredible disconnect, even arrogance, on the part of those who feel emboldened to render their judgment on the heroes of American labor. They can’t tell the basic difference between those who by their sacrifice positively impacted the labor movement in America and who actively work to set us back. It’s a bad joke really.” Reagan "was evil and did much to permanently undermine Labor," added Mary Traeger Pascale. “OMG, Ronald Reagan as a paragon of organized labor?” wrote Connie Cordovilla. “Are you f-ing kidding me?” wondered Scott Reynolds. “I’m two states away, but standing with you in solidarity,” wrote Liz Evans Scolforo in response to our protest Action Alert.
