AFSCME | Unions Rock

Unions rock. That’s the consensus of Van Halen and Bruce Springsteen, who have both sung the praises of workers on their latest albums. …. Bruce Springsteen’s “Shackled and Drawn” from his new album Wrecking Ball tells the plight of workers in a Guthrie-esque style only the Boss could replicate. He sings, “I always love the feel of sweat on my shirt. Stand back, son, and let a man work. Let a man work, is that so wrong. I woke up this morning shackled and drawn.” … Former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello (who joins The Boss on his new album), protested on behalf of workers in Wisconsin last February and his most recent album The Nightwatchman pays tribute to workers.
