We must never lose sight of that. American Union, Collective Bargaining, Labor Union, Workers Rights, Social Class, Us Border, Organizers, Feminism, Planners

Unions are why there are fire exits at your work, and why the doors aren't padlocked during work hours.

"There are folks out there who say, 'It doesn't impact me, I'm not a union guy, I'm not a teacher, I'm not a civil servant.' Let me tell you how it does matter to you. Wages are going down in this country for everybody. When you destroy unions there will be no standard at all, nobody left to negotiate decent jobs for the middle class." ~ U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders Photo credit: Gage Skidmore

When people say outsourcing is the union's fault for pricing themselves out of the market, ask them why the CEO's aren't outsourced since their pay is higher than any other country in the world.

Republicans hate labor unions because they raise wages for all working class Americans. You will never see a republican vote pro-union or pro-labor. Think about that next time you vote.

Unions lift wages for non-union members by creating a higher prevailing wage. Even if you aren't a union member, your pay is influenced by the strength or weakness of organized labor. The presence of unions sets off a wage race to the top. Their absence sets off a race to the bottom. ~ Eric Liu, American author, lecturer, policy advisor
