Tried to post this on Labor Day, but I was having DivShare problems at the time.
But given the current events involving the teachers in Chicago this week, it seemed appropriate again.
So...from 1973, please enjoy Brit folk-rockers The Strawbs and their actual militantly pro-labor hit single "Part of the Union."
A song, I should add, that is pretty much unthinkable on the American pop charts, both then and now, but which remains a perennial in the UK along the lines of "Mull of Kintyre," fer crissakes.
And a song which I am sure deeply upset, both at the time and over the years, the odious Margaret Thatcher, then an obscure in America Tory rising star, rather than the single most batshit insane legitimately elected head of state of any advanced industrial democracy in the second half of the 20th century she ultimately became.
