Labor Day = Health Care Day for Unions

Steven Greenhouse reports in the Times today that unions leaders across the country will use the traditional Labor Day holiday as a platform to rally for health care reform — and in particular a public-insurance option — days before Obama's much-anticipated speech.

In Boston, Organizing for America, a project of the Democratic National Committee, will hold a rally at 11am Monday at the gazebo on Boston Common, Reuters reports.

This program aired on September 6, 2009. The audio for this program is not available.
