From California to the New York Island

If you ever wonder why you have it so good at your workplace (that is, if you have a job these days), this guy's partially to thank. During Labor Day weekend, I can't think of anyone better to toast than Woody Guthrie, a champion of laborer's rights and freedoms; a leader with a pocket of coal, and a heart of gold.  While you're enjoying some free time, tip one back for Woody.

Now as I look around, it's mighty plain to see
This world is such a great and a funny place to be;
Oh, the gamblin' man is rich an' the workin' man is poor,
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.
