SORT BY Relevancy
Last week I went to a function at the Harris County Democratic Party. A young speaker at the event spent about half a hour talking about the United Steelworkers Union strike against 11 refineries including Royal Dutch Shell and LyondellBasell in the Houston Area.
I read a lot of news. Why is this news not widely out there. At a time when we are constantly talking about income inequality and wealth disparity one would think it would be covered. At a time when labor unions are in decline, how is it not news?

When President Obama pushed his health care overhaul plan through Congress, he counted labor unions among his strongest supporters. But some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law -- problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members. The issue could create a political headache next year for Democrats facing re-election if disgruntled union members believe the Obama administration and Congress aren't working to fix the problem. "It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it," said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. "That is not going to be true for millions of workers now."

Our guest this morning is Michael Bell.
Michael, a South Bay local, is the founder and co-owner of Bell Event Services. He grew up in the area, watching it prosper and wanting to be a part of the community. He began working as a bass player at a young age with local bands. After getting married and having children, he began working as the Event Coordinator for a large production company for a number of years.
About 10 years ago, Michael made the bold move to start Bell Event Services, utilizing the contacts he'd made over the years. It was a struggle in the beginning and started out of his garage, but has since blossomed into one of the largest event companies in California.
Michael prides himself on his amazing team building, strategy and logistical skills and provides his customers with the very best. His unwavering desire to see things through has resulted in the management of many annual events and the regular business of many clients, such as Fiesta Hermosa and Edelbrock's Rev'ved Up 4 Kids Car Show, along with entertainers such as Jim Belushi and Frank Sinatra Jr.
So, this morning, we’re going to get the inside scoop on the upcoming Fiesta Hermosa, taking place Labor Day Weekend, September 5 through September 7.

THE BIRTH OF OUR UNION...
In the late 1880's steel had virtually replaced wood and stone as the primry load-carrying material in the erections of bridges and buildings. This abrupt change in structual materials brought a demand for a new type of skill required of the working man. Practically overnight, bridge carpenters became "bridgemen" and blacksmiths became "housesmiths" and 'architectural ironworkers.
When American historian Fredrick Jackson Turner proclaimed the end of an era for the American Frontier, Ironworkers became known as 'COWBOYS OF THE SKIES.'
The glamour and appeal of the new skill...etc.
$2.10 a day for ten hours of work...etc.
1890...accident and mortality rates...etc.
Steel erection attracted the most...etc.
