Who needs unions? (Hint: The middle class)

via The Opinionated Democrat on Facebook — This is not a coincidence. “Right to Work” really means the right to work for less income, and allowing employers to hire cheap, low-skill labor. Thus becoming more and more like the nations that make all our other crap. Unions have fought hard for benefits that transfer all across the working world, whether unionized or not. They’ve gotten us the 40 hour work week, fair wages, OT, vacation, healthcare, retirement funds, etc. etc. etc….. Never forget this.
