Fire fighters, teachers, farmers, pilots and doctors are all people who make America work.

The AFL-CIO has released a television ad and web site using the theme, “Work Connects Us All,” to show the importance of unions and union members by emphasizing how hard work helps move

America forward and binds us all for the greater good of the country.

The ad features members of various unions and has aired in three cities including: Pittsburgh, Austin and Portland.

Elizabeth Shuler, secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO, told National Public Radio the Work Connects Us All campaign is a long-term effort to re-introduce the labor movement to young people.

See the ad for yourself. Let us know what you think.
