Labor Day | 2009
Follows a group that played a pivotal role in the electing of Barack Obama: the SEIU (Service Employees International Union), the nation's fastest-growing labor union, with more than two million members. Labor Day is a chronicle of this union's engagement and mobilization to ensure a Democratic victory in 2008. For Labor, the Presidential campaign was mission critical. After eight years of Republican policies, the union felt an incredible sense of urgency to change the direction of the economy and the country.
