Thank a Union!
Great quote from Miss Molly Ivins:
Although it is true that only about 20 percent of American workers are in unions, that 20 percent sets the standards across the board in salaries, benefits and working conditions. If you are making a decent salary in a non-union company, you owe that to the unions. One thing that corporations do not do is give out money out of the goodness of their hearts.
Next time you see someone on a picket line, honk and give them a thumbs up. You might owe them more than you think.
