Our story begins with a mural.

LABOR MATTERS is not merely what you see in an auto factory.  It is what is there - powerful people and machines, struggle and triumph, hopes and dreams. With windows into the history of workers who make America's cars, BRUCE ADAMS' mural tells a rich, expansive story.  He captures the timeless hardships of everyday life, the dignity of work and the productive power of American industry. 

Painted in the style of SOCIAL REALISM, the mural declares a moral concern and celebrates the extraordinary achievements of ordinary working people.  American working men and women stand here as heroes and symbols of strength and hope.
