Our Union-made Hot Dog List For Great Eats

Click to download

In honor of July being National Hot Dog Month (Yes, it’s a thing), we are celebrating the union-made hot dog (or wiener or frank or whatever you choose to call it). Hot dogs are a summer favorite particularly at barbeques and ballparks. According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (yes, that’s also a thing) fans will consume more than 19 million hot dogs and five million sausages at ball parks during the 2022 Major League Baseball season.

When you’re planning your own cookout or quick meal, Labor 411 recommends hot dogs of the ethical and union variety like the ones listed below. These fabulous franks were made by companies who treat their workers fairly and give them a voice on the job. We have also thrown in some equally ethical condiments because who eats hot dogs bare?

Enjoy the dog days of July and let’s all help build a stronger American economy.
