Description:

1979. Sally Field as Norma Rae Baker copies a letter that instigates workers against workers amidst the intimidation of her supervisiors. When taken to her supervisor's office, she is further imitidated, but meets them with what she has to do to guarantee the worker is respected. When her supervisor's tell her to get off the premises, she refuses until she can make her point across.

Personally, I watch this scene everytime I feel I should speak truth to power and stand up for what is right. I think this scene has added importance here because of recent drama and the need to stand up for what is great about this site and its members. This scene also inspired me to start The Classic Union Mentoring Program. If this interests you, just click on the link.

You'll notice the string of certain "How To" articles on here are under the name of the group, and we can always use more voices. Happy Labor Day!
