We Do the Work Comments:

>  Fortune 500 companies shelter trillions of dollars: therefore, do not pay their fair share of taxes. 

>  On November 5, 1916, a dozen IWWs were shot and killed as they tried to enter Everett Washington by boat so the IWW members in the northwest will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Everett Massacre on November 5.

>  Invitation to the Everett Massacre Centennial Commemoration sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Labor History Association and the Snohomish County Labor Council.
