Union Made Easter Candy

Some of you may be in the mood to buy candy this weekend, and as always you can do something good for people and the planet by purchasing products made with union labor. Unions provide many benefits to workers including: higher pay, retirement benefits, health care, collective bargaining representation, and much more. In general, union workers live happier and healthier lives, which makes my jelly beans taste even better.
