Working Union People

Working Union People
The working union people of this country are an amazing lot. Against all odds, they will walk off their jobs and strike, enduring significant hardships sometimes for months or even years – and why? To protect future generations of workers - and to preserve elusive concepts like “dignity” and “respect.” The generosity of the American working class and their willingness to help others is downright awe- inspiring. We just keep on trying. Unity Millwright Ron

Right To Work

In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, as 'right-to-work.' It provides no 'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining...

This is America

This is America, where we have freedom...of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly—and the freedom to join a union.
In theory !!!!!
For most working men and women today, the freedom to form a union—a fundamental human and civil right—is an elusive freedom. When employers block workers’ efforts to form a union, it is no small infringement: Some 42 million nonunion workers say they want to be part of unions

Health Benifits

80% of union workers in the U.S. have health benefits through their job, compared with 49% of non-union workers.

Guns and Trouble

Guns and Trouble
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.
