When Hard Work Just Isn’t Enough: The Union Difference
This country is built on hard work and the notion that people who apply themselves can get ahead. But what if you work hard at a job all week, take care of your family and still can’t catch a break?
Too many people are stuck in that very trap. Without a union they find themselves in low-paying jobs with no respect and relying on government aid to get health care and make ends meet.
Unionized workers make more than their non-union counterparts. Period.
Unionized workers are more likely to have health care, family health coverage, sick and vacation days and a retirement plan leaving them less reliant on government subsidy and better able to plan for their futures.
Unionized workers are more likely to have training and opportunities for advancement. They also are more productive and provide better customer service.
