Uh-oh, now I have an ear worm:
'Look for the Union Label" - written to mark the 75th anniversary of the union that had been given its first growth spurt by the disastrous Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire of March 25, 1911 - was intended to make American consumers aware that cheap clothing made overseas or in nonunion Southern factories was hurting their hardworking neighbors.

Look for the Union Label

A song by Paula Green, music by Malcolm Dodds ©1975, UNITE
Union of Needltrades, Industrial and Textile Employees
(formerly International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union and other unions)

Look for the union label
when you are buying that coat, dress or blouse.

Remember somewhere, our union's sewing,
our wages going to feed the kids and run the house.

We work hard, but who's complaining?
Thanks to the I.L.G. we're paying our way!

So always look for the union label,
it says we're able to make it in the U.S.A.!
