Best ever guide to union-made products

This is the best one we've seen so far. It's an online guide called "Labor 411." Not only does it have a comprehensive list of union-made products, but it has a guide to union services (like car washes and printers) in San Francisco and Los Angeles. (Maybe some other cities will hop on board!)

It's supported by unions and California labor councils. Every month, you can enter a raffle for union-made goods, including All-Clad stainless steel skillets, a $150 gift card on Southwest Airlines and a basket of union-made sweets.

And speaking of sweets, Halloween is coming up and you'll be looking for union-made candy. The Labor 411 site offers the following suggestions:
  • Jawbreakers
  • Kit Kat bars
  • Hershey dark chocolate
  • Butterfinger
  • See's Candy
  • Ghirardelli chocolate
  • Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar
...to name just a few.
