On Labor day weekend, I want to pay tribute to my father Steve Brody (1917-1998). In this photo he is 17, working for the WPA, President Roosevelt’s great job’s initiative. He left the Bronx, NY to build roads in Yellowstone Park. Here he is with two buddies at “Liberty Cap.”
After this experience my Dad became a Union organizer New York’s garment union chapter, District 5. I am pleased to be "Co-Convener" of the local Chapter of the AAUP.
