Labor 411 Philadelphia

Nearly 40 million visitors come from around the world to witness the history and bursting personality of Philadelphia each and every year. The birth of the United States happened here, and with many attractions free of charge, anyone can join in the fun!

Take a walk through time as you visit historic sites like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where revolutionary documents like the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed. If sports are more your thing, you are in luck. Philadelphia is one of the few cities that with pro teams from all four major sports! So head over to Lincoln Financial Field and take in an Eagles game or grab a beer down at Citizens Bank Park while watching the Phillies knock one out of the park.

If you are looking for some good old family fun you can’t go wrong with a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo or the heart pumping rollercoaster’s at Six Flags Great Adventure in nearby Jackson, NJ. Round out your day with some fine dining at the Keating’s River Grill located inside the Hilton Penn’s Landing where every dish is sure to please.

However, the “City of Brotherly love” boasts more than great sightseeing and good eats. All of these memorable attractions are also union shops. This means that every time you patronize one of these businesses you are doing your part to support good jobs in Philadelphia that pay fair wages, provide safe working conditions and access to healthcare and a secure retirement. Now that’s a powerful purchase!
