  •  One big union, or many in solidarity. (6+ / 0-)

    I'm making less money now than i was 10 years ago, despite over 10 dollars p/hour in raises. Our union, sheet metal workers local 73 in chicago, has drastically raised our dues, doesn't help other members locate work(unless you're family), has made having health insurance difficult to keep, even though we still pay for it while we dont have it - to help our unions retirees. I would like to see the unions join together to help people who aren't in unions as well as those that are. Raise the minimum wage to a living wage & break the stranglehold that big money has on our government. Lobbying them with our votes and money isn't working, I think striking is the only way to do get their attention. And they can't do that without us.

    Strike! Without our work they have absolutely nothing...
