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.

Featured Certification

80 PLUS is an initiative to promote energy efficiency in computer power supply units (PSU). It certifies products that have more than 80% energy efficiency at 20%, 50% and 100% of rated load, and apower factor of 0.9 or greater at 100% load. That is, PSUs that waste 20% or less electric energy as heat at the specified load levels, thus reducing electricity use and bills compared to less efficient PSUs. Sometimes rebates are given for manufacturers who use 80 PLUS-certified PSUs.
