I was raised in a household with one of the salaries being a union job. My dad was a Teamsters (Local 743) for decades.
An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay is what unions are fighting for every day of the year. I believe we need strong unions to make sure we keep middle class jobs.
The Automobile Mechanics' Local 701 strike that ended in September 2017 is a perfect example of why we need STRONG unions. Did you know one of the things they were fighting for was to be paid for the amount of work they did? I would have never thought someone would not want to pay someone for the amount of work they did. This is why we need unions.
