The <a href="/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_State_Capitol">Capital building here in Tallahassee</a> has often been referred to as the "People's House", and I couldn't agree more. The members of the <a href="/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_Legislature">Florida State Legislature</a> are occupants of the house that we as citizens of the state of Florida own. Those members of the Legislature that we send to Tallahassee are there to work on the behalf of all voters and their families, and the building they work in, belongs to us. I encourage all Floridians to visit "their" house and their representatives here in Tallahassee or in their district offices. The representatives and their aides I have spoken to so far in my visit seem genuinely glad to meet the voters they represent. It is important that voters be aware of all legislation being proposed, because any laws passed here in Tallahassee has a direct and lasting impact to voters lives back in their districts. If any voter cannot take the time to come to Tallahassee, <strong>they must make the time</strong> to visit their representatives district office. Voters should educate themselves on proposed legislation and then make their representatives aware of how they feel about those proposed bills.

Labor Line

I would like to introduce a blog dealing with labor issues and how those issues affect all Americans in their daily lives. Labor Line will address the many factors that shape the labor movement including politically, socially and economically. I hope that this gives non-union members a better understanding of what those of us in the labor movement believe in, which includes respect and dignity on the job, a safe work environment and a living wage.
