Because of unions, we have the minimum wage, the 40 hour work week, over-time pay, benefits, the weekend, and more: Americans need to stand up and fight the steady erosion of collective bargaining and other workers' rights that has taken place over the last thirty or so years. We also need to demand that our president and his administration quit capitulating to corporate interests and start standing up for workers.
