There are only 12 shopping days left before Christmas and if you’re still looking for that special gift and want to support America’s workers at the same time, check out AFL-CIO’s The Union Shop OnlineTM for your one-stop holiday shopping.
There’s a great selection of holiday cards and hundreds of worker-friendly gifts. And if you order by Dec. 16, you’ll receive the merchandise before Dec. 25.
A few gift suggestions: Help your loved one stay warm and snug in a new medium-weight, unembroidered, full-zip, fleece jacket. The jacket comes in navy, green and gray. For a more formal look, The Union Shop OnlineTM carries a classic men’s dress shirt in light blue with “AFL-CIO” embroidered above the pocket—union made and Made in the USA.
For music lovers, pick up “The Essential Bruce Springsteen” at The Union Shop OnlineTM for only $24.98, and you’ll find inspiration, heartbreak, joy and songs that don’t get old. You’ll also find well-known progressive, worker-friendly artists such as Billy Bragg, Steve Earle, Dave Alvin and Pete Seeger, as well as collections of traditional union songs, working-class classics and civil rights anthems.
The Union Shop OnlineTM carries gifts for children, including a book that teaches a valuable union lesson. “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type,” by Doreen Cronin, describes a group of barnyard cows who go on strike when Farmer Brown won’t agree to provide them the work environment they need to produce milk.
There are dozens of posters and other artwork celebrating working women, civil rights, union members and workers all around the world—and lots more last-minute gifts at The Union Shop Online. TM
