Union Thoughts

Yes, there have been corrupt unions and yes, some state employees have secured overly lavish benefits. But strong unions have always been workers' main protection. Countries that have maintained strong unions have less inequality, stronger safety nets and a more secure middle class.... The idea that allowing corporations to treat workers as they please will somehow result in an abundance of good, well-paying jobs is a dangerous pipe dream, but one very popular with the current crop of corporate oligarchs.
