How about celebrating Labor Day with some movies about labor! Harlan County USA iwwThe Wobblies (Doc on the IWW, the world-wide, non-trade-specific workers union. Includes a segment about an incident in which Washington State workers were murdered for organizing!) Salt of the Earth Matewan Blue Collar (non-comedic acting from Richard Pryor, directed by Paul Schraeder!) Norma Rae The Organizer (Italian but about labor!) Roger & Me There's more, I'm sure, like Gung Ho! But this should be a good start for you.
