Labor Day weekend this year was just a few days past the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I have a Dream” speech.
On Aug. 28, 1963, King’s speech closed out the “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.”
It set out a historic milepost in civil rights movement.
But King and other speakers — including Walter Reuther, long-time president of the United Auto Workers — also called for equal opportunity in employment.
