The oldest extant labor organization in the United States is the Carpenters’ Company of the City and County of Philadelphia.
Granted it is a guild and not a union, and in fairness when it was formed in 1724 the City of Philadelphia did not have the the same boundaries as the County of Philadelphia.

Vanessa Marquez The Dog That Is Not Barking — When a dog barks it usually means you are being warned about something. With a dog that constantly barks, however, it’s when it goes quiet that you become curious.
Vanessa Marquez, an Hispanic actress of some note, died Thursday (Aug. 30) shortly after being shot by police in her South Pasadena, Calif., apartment. Police had responded when the building manager reported that she was having seizures. They found her uncooperative and talked with her for about an hour and a half in an attempt to convince her to get treatment. She eventually, according to reports, pointed at them a bb gun that resembled a handgun so they shot her.
We are not bashing the police here — nor are we particularly praising them but that’s a different issue — we are expressing puzzlement at the quiet.
A minority woman was shot, unnecessarily in hindsight, by police and there is silence.
Where are the shrieking protests by Antifa and Black Lives Matter? Where is the pompous tut-tutting commentary by the establishment media? Why isn’t NBC making up stuff to sow discord and division?
It sure has us curious. Granted Ms. Marquez reportedly had a terminal disease and emotional problems but things like that never stopped the usual suspects before.
Anyway, here is Ms. Marquez’s last Facebook post from Aug. 8:
