LP Monday Message: Promoting Free Labor Markets

September 7, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

First, I’d like to wish you a happy Labor Day.

Second, I thought I’d share Plank 2.7 of the Libertarian Party Platform:

"Labor Markets

We support repeal of all laws which impede the ability of any person to find employment. We oppose government-fostered forced retirement. We support the right of free persons to associate or not associate in labor unions, and an employer should have the right to recognize or refuse to recognize a union. We oppose government interference in bargaining, such as compulsory arbitration or imposing an obligation to bargain."

I hope you agree that government interference with labor markets does much more harm than good.

Labor Day is an official holiday for the Libertarian Party staff in Washington, DC, so our office is officially closed. However, I’m working at the office today because there’s so much to do, and I want to get one step ahead on things. If you’d like to take one big step for liberty on Labor Day by signing up for a monthly pledge, please call me at 202-333-0008. (When the recording starts, just dial extension 222 to reach me.)
