Americans were pushed to their limit in the recession and its aftermath as they worked longer hours, often for the same or less pay, after businesses laid off almost 9 million employees
More American workers sue employers for overtime pay
Theres pros and cons to everything, nothing is perfect. Unions do have their negatives. However, taking the history of labor and its abuses of workers, unions have far more positives than negatives. This is just one example, unions do NOT ALLOW employers to steal from and cheat their employees out of wages earned and make them work untold hours for basically nothing lining their pockets. It happens far more than its known in non union employment where theres nothing to make the employers do the right thing.
No im not a socialist but I am all about workers getting a fair shake.
