A good example of why Unions are necessary.

Also, many union pensions/benefits are underfunded, and there are more retirees collecting than workers contributing. Right now I view it as a sinking ship, but in theory I do support a worker's right to organize.
Also if the company can't be reasonable waged and provide reasonable Conditions, is it really such a bad thing that they don't exist? Having more low Pay jobs and pissed off workers who get treat inhumanely by dishonest management will definitely have negative effects in society.
Union leaders are not ultra-conservative. That’s completely false. Unions overwhelmingly support Democrats.
what was your experience like?
Very positive, when a contract expired I was usually working within a couple of days. I have been with the Teamsters, UAW & SEIU.☯️
The thing is that every right they stood up for has already been made law. They’re nothing more than another special interest group. Not many know this, but it was the union that screwed kids out of learning in the classroom during Covid. And you can’t replace them because it says so in there contract. The teachers union in public schools is beyond corrupt.
Yes, big companies would just steamroller people if they could get away with it. Sometimes the unions get too powerful like the teachers union and that gives all of them a bad name.
@exitseven Yes, they could because they're abusive.
I make $15 an hour. That won’t get an apartment in any major American city. If you live in a major city, you would be struggling to keep your head above water financially at $15 an hour. It’s not much money, sorry.
@etexbearkat it’s more than minimum wage, which is the point. Would you rather make 7.50?
Have you worked in one? Why do you support them? What benefits do you get that you wouldn’t get on your own?
@TheBigGuy9 probably all the quirks most unions give you, medical dental, paid vacation time and also its much much harder to fire you i hear.
I have great insurance. As far as harder to fire, yes. But you will find practically the same thing at any other job. The same rights that unions stood up for all those years were made into law 30-40 years ago.When I worked at a union, we had a points system. 1 day call in was 2 points3 days in a row call in was 2 points. You could still make it up because we had overtime pay after 8 hours, not 40. Yes, it’s harder to fire, but too many people took advantage of the system and worked it to their favor. That’s not good business.I like having more accountability and this is coming from someone born with a muscle wasting disease and blood clotting disorder.
