    It aggregates the arbitration power of the workers over the whole to allow them better ability to argue compensation for their labor in contract negotiations with employers.

    To protect workers from being underpaid, to protect workers from being overworked, contract negotiations, looking out for worker rights, able to bargain on work safety standards, maintain the quality of labor at a specific job, helps prevent forms of exploitation, and more.

    I assume you'll be working. For slave wages. Since everything the Union does is evil.
    Well your right.....as there is no rest for the self employed......somebody has to create things for the union slobs to put together.

    If you did, they'd Unionize in a heartbeat. But if Unions hadn't created the expectation of getting off on weekends, it would be expected that we all work.

    unions have been gutted so much in the past 30 years that i find it difficult to believe that any rational human being can consider them a convenient demon.

    meanwhile, countless non-union workers still benefit from the changes and improvements in working conditions that the work of unions led to.

    something to think about over your two day weekend.

    My job is non-union as well. I am essentially chained to work. I don't get to see the outside on many days (the windows in the lab are covered up to prevent light contamination). Cattle prods are conferences in my field. Weekends are assumed that you will be working. 10-12 hours a day standard.

    Well one can't really add another day to the week. However, we have seen what it was like before Unions and proper oversight. Where do you think child labor laws came from? Businesses handing out candy to children on their way to school?
