What unions have done for you

Like your weekends? Thank a union. Some things unions have given us:

An 8 hour day and a 40 hour work week – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Weekends off – because of whatuUnion members in the past fought and some died for.

Overtime pay – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Medical leave – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Holidays off – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Clean air and water – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Safe working conditions – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Fair pay – because of what union members in the past fought and some died for.

Unions may have their flaws, but if they could, corporations would roll back most of these hard-won worker rights real FAST if the bargaining power of unions was destroyed.
