Plus: Very happy to announce a $500 challenge grant from UnionPlus and another $500 challenge grant from an anonymous supporter of the show: they’ll match the first $500 we raise this hour, which means every dollar contributed is worth $3! Union Plus provides benefits and services available only to union members and their families, including savings on wireless services, discounts on travel and entertainment, financial services and much more.
