Unions created the middle class. Unions are created to protect the worker’s interests and rights. I was at a union meeting last night. The discussion was about how the facilities are under staff and the union worker are constantly being asked to work outside their job descriptions. Union members that work outside their job descriptions can be fired on the spot. These union members are doing the work because the work has to be done. Union workers obliged management because the union worker feels a responsibility for acceptance and feels pride in their work. I did not hear that the union workers wanted more money. The union workers are asking management to hire more laborers. In this case the union is the job creators because they are the ones that a noticing the need for more workers. The union meeting briefly went over safer worker condition because of few work related injuries. A facility that is short staff leads to worker injuries. Unions are not always about better wages, but after all unions are asking for a better life for their families and their fellow workers
