Turner Corn, a member of the Laborers' International Union of North America from Indiana, wrote a new pro-labor song after being inspired by rallies on behalf of working families. Corn's song is called "Remember November" and is a country song not unlike much of the popular country on the radio these days. Unlike most popular country, though, the song is strongly-pro union.
An excerpt from the song:
We built this country
On the backs of those that work
We're all in this together
Our voices shall be heard
AFL-CIO is promoting the song on their blog:
When Indiana working families were rallying at the statehouse against the state legislatures’ drive to ram through "right to work" legislation, Laborers (LIUNA) member Turner Corn was there with his guitar to boost the crowd's spirit.
He’s since written this new song, “Remember November,” which reflects the frustrations working Americans feel towards elected officials who attack their fundamental rights and values.
Corn's website has more. His bio:
