Flagonomics — Supporting Good Jobs With Your Fourth of July Dollars




Our friends at Labor 411 continue to offer ways to celebrate holidays and support good American jobs at the same time. This week, of course, the 411 folks are highlighting the Fourth of July.

Red: Solo Cups, Red Vines, Coca-Cola, Wine (C.K. Mondavi, Gallo Estate, Turning Leaf), Salsa (Old El Paso, Tostitos, Pace)

White: Popcorn (Act II, Orville Redenbacher, Smartfood), Domino Sugar, Chicken (Foster Farms, Banquet, Tyson), Milk (Alta Dena, Darigold, Horizon)

Blue: Pepsi, Blue Heron Pale Ale, Cool Ranch Doritos, Bud Light, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Water (not technically blue, but: American Springs Water, Northern Fall’s Water, Pocono Springs Water, Poland Spring Water)
