Labor Unions: All Treats, No Tricks

Your DGB for Halloween is to make sure your treats are union-made in the USA.

If there are two things we at DGB love, it’s labor unions and candy. And it is our unadulterated pleasure to share with you that many beloved Halloween treats are made by union workers. The AFL-CIO put together a handy list of top ten favorites that any trick-or-treater would be pleased to find in their candy bucket which can be found here: https://aflcio.org/Halloween

Maybe you want to go allergen-free but still fun. Here’s a list of union-made trinkets: http://madeinusaforever.com/otfunstse.html

And if you are willing to risk an egg-covered car and a year’s supply of toilet paper decorating your front yard, how about some union-made toothbrushes? You’re welcome: http://madeinusaforever.com/jrkisotomuby.html

Made In America Week

Your DGB for today is to celebrate Made In America Week: a theme week invented by the White House to distract from their complete ineptitude and criminality.

We at DGB are happy to oblige this promotion, as it’s the first thing the administration has done that isn’t completely self-serving. You see, the Trumps don’t make things in America. Ivanka’s line is manufactured overseas and so is DJT’s. They use foreign steel in what real estate projects are actually in America. Hell, even his campaign opposition research was outsourced to Russians.

Assuming the White House isn’t being intentionally ironic with this theme, here are some products actually made in the USA, with leadership on the right side of history:

 

Dr. Bronners products are made in California, with the company donating $50,000 to the National Immigration Law Center in response to January’s Muslim Ban Executive Order.

 

K’NEX are made in a Pennsylvania factory visited by Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign to not kill us all.

 

The Levi Strauss Foundation donated one million dollars to various progressive non-profits this year, including the Council of American-Islamic relations and the Transgender Law Center.

 

Lodge Cookware, made in Tennessee, is great cast-iron cookware family company with a commitment to recycling.

 

LUSH beauty products has always championed inclusivity and diversity. This year, they’ve released a product called “Yuge”, which gives you the opposite of Trump’s hair: voluminous and healthy.
