How often do you hear the argument that people in unions shouldn’t ask for reasonable pay and benefits because no one else gets reasonable pay and benefits anymore?
And people in unions certainly shouldn’t ask for pensions, because no one gets pensions anymore…
After Reagan came in they broke the unions, and by-and-large working people have not gotten a raise since — except the few who still have a union.
Isn’t the lesson to learn from this that people are much better off when they are in a strong union — not that people should hate unions? Duh?
Happy Labor Day weekend. Remember that the only reason you have Labor Day off is because of unio ns fighting to get that.
And the only reason you only have to work 8 hours a day, get a weekend off, a minimum wage (as low as it is now) etc. is because of unions.
