The 2008 Presidential Campaign was an extraordinary moment in U.S. history not only because of the race and gender of the candidates, but also because of the passions they inspired. Millions of Americans and hundreds of organizations became actively engaged in the democratic process of choosing the next president. Labor Day, by two time Oscar Nominee Glenn Silber (The War at Home), tells the inspiring story of how the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the nation's fastest growing labor union with more than two million members, helped tip the balance in Barack Obama's favor, proving that when united, people can get the change they need. By revisiting the passion behind the 2008 Presidential campaign, Labor Day dramatically reveals what one union, thousands of activists, and a commitment to make change did to help turn Election Day into Labor Day. Directed by Glenn Silber, U.S.A., 2008, 74 mins.
