Vice President Joe Biden rallied hundreds of union workers on Monday, saying he believes all American workers deserve a "fair share" as corporations grow.

Speaking at the annual Labor Day parade in Detroit, Biden lamented average Americans' limited access to fair wages.

"A job's about a lot more than a paycheck. It's about your dignity, it's about your place in the community, it's about who you are. It's about being able to look your kid in the eye and say, 'Honey, it's going to be ok.' That's what a job is about," Biden said. "You can't do that unless you get a fair wage."

The speech was Biden's second appearance at Labor Day festivities in the last three years. During his impassioned address, Biden credited labor unions for building the middle class, and thus "building the United States as we know it."

"If the middle class is doing fine, everybody does fine," he said. "The wealthy get very wealthy, and the poor have a way up."

Here's a screen cap of the top of a NYT article on wage theft (because NYT doesn't allow copy and paste):

Nah, that means paid time off. In a lot of jobs in the U.S., you can't even get unpaid time off without worrying about whether you'll keep your job. You're quite literally at your employer's mercy.

We have laws in the UK to prevent people having to work for so long without a break. We also have laws re annual leave. Mind you, wages are still rubbish in a lot of jobs.
