We continue with our list of workers from 2013 this week. Every year, on April 28th, the country honors each and every worker who has died on their job - Worker Memorial Day. We encourage everyone to look for an event that may be near where you live. Take a minute that evening, to light a candle and remember those among us who left us behind and who we still mourn. www.usmwf.org
