More About Unions

When you join a union, you are joining with like minded people who recognize the decline of our middle class and the decades long increase in corporate greed that has been allowed to run wild.  It’s unions that built the middle class and it’s only through unions that WE can bring the middle class back.  Without the counter balance of American workers joining together in unions, the middle class withers away because the economy and politics tend to be dominated by the rich and powerful.  This leads to an even greater flow of money in our economy going to the top of the income scale.  They use a large portion of this income they don’t deserve through lobbying and the media to make us think they deserve it.

So how do we counteract this?  The answer lies in unionization.  Teamsters and all union members know that American workers standing together can reduce this inequality.  American workers need a voice more now than they have in a very long time.  Remember, when unions were at their peak, our middle class and economy was at its peak, and our economy can’t improve until we restore our middle class.  Unionization worked then and it will work now.  U.S. labor unions had nothing to do with our economic crisis.  It’s been greedy corporations, the finance industry, and unscrupulous politicians all along.  Don’t be fooled into thinking otherwise.  Their union bashing tactics are designed to suppress your freedom and make you think otherwise.  More for them means less for you and this greed will only stop when the American people make it stop.  It’s time to wake up and stand up for our legal, democratic, and fundamental rights to organize and bargain collectively.
