And he would be right as rain! All of those things and many others, workers enjoy today because unions fought for them and won.
I worked through a union for the better part of 33 yrs. and I retired at 48 yrs. of age in 2005. During that time, I didn't agree with everything my
union did either, so I got involved.
Getting involved is what makes unions better and more often than not, those who constantly bitch about how bad their union is or was, are usually the
ones who also refused to get in there and clean them up. IMO, those who won't get involved deserve what they get, which can be a union run by
Kinda reminds me of those who constantly bitch about their elected officials but refuse to go vote when the opportunity arrises, much less get
involved and actually run for office.
I guess it really boils down to the old saying, "You only get out of something, what you put into it."
F&S for the OP.
