The Right to Join a Union Makes America Strong

 

The Right to Join a Union Makes America Strong The right to organize and join a union is a fundamental right which must be preserved and maintained if we are to keep our nation strong.

With the help of trade unions in the United States, workers were able to gain new rights such as the forty hour work week, worker’s pensions, compensation for injury obtained on the job, and living wages. Without Unions we would look more like the developing world , where worker’s have few rights, face hazardous job conditions and receive little compensation for their employment. We would not have the strength and innovation that our economy has without the contribution of our workers and we would not have a healthy and inspired workforce without our unions. «Read the rest of this article»
