this is what happens to workers nowadays without a union strong arming their employer:



you can't be slamming beers or using drugs when you're working on a scaffold or other aerial platforms.

Stop acting like a fat mom. We can handle our beers.

So what would you guys rather have? Workers unionize to get a better deal for themselves from their employers, or activists organize to force the government to take action?

Also do you believe the NBA should have a players union?

I'm currently in a unionized position and I think its great. Excellent pay and outstanding benefits.

But the best thing about being in a union is how it creates a layer of insulation between the worker and corporate bullshit. You are far less likely to get hassled over petty shit; you dont really get those abuse-of-power bosses (that I ran into in my non-union days). No one wants to cause a stir, and the corporate indoctrination crap isn't there. I can go to work, do my job, and leave. Lovely.

Long live unions. Corporate America can eat a dick.
