or this kid's union story...
As a union worker today, I am aware of just how rare this type of support is for any employee. I'm 100% sure that my wages and benefits would be far less if I were not represented.
Side note, some of today's unions are also working on better ways to represent further marginalized people. As an example, my union, the Amalgamated Transit Union, has recently formed a PRIDE Coalition representing those of us who are LGBTQIA+ members.
Truly the Socialist countries are light years ahead of us. Ah, would that we could be so smart.
Wonderful story about your Dad. Amazing to know the Hearing came to his aid like that.
You are correct to show the correlation between yester-years unions, the development of anti-union sentiment as it seeped into our society, and the outcome of thousands of people being laid off in a single day by a large corporation. It breaks my heart to see people thrown aside as though they are nothing more than a paper trail. Quite insightful. Thank you!
Love the photo of you and your dad. 😍 I loved being protected by the teacher's union.
