From the Irish Echo:

The contribution of the Irish in America to the cause of labor has been nothing less than immense. Indeed, it could be argued that the American labor movement would not exist at all in its current form without the efforts of standout Irish men and women down the years, both immigrant arrivals, and American born.

It is with this unique legacy in mind that the Irish Echo is hosting an event this coming September in New York, the Irish Labor 50. The event will honor 50 leading Irish American men and women in today’s labor movement, while at the same reflecting on the work of those historical giants who paved the way to labor’s central role in contemporary American life.
