Today, August 5, President Reagan dropped a bomb on Labor Unions


In 1981, the tired, overworked, underpaid Air Traffic Controllers went on strike. Unfortunately, the boss they were striking against was the Commander and Chief.

It was on this very day that President Ronald Reagan said to them, “The Strike is Over! You’re Fired!”

For the next two years after this incident, workers who belonged to the labor unions were scared to death to go on strike.
