GUEST,aesop BS: Do we still need unions? (110* d) RE: BS: Do we still need unions? 14 Jun 01


Yes, we need unions! Without a union each employee has to negotiate as an individual, instead of collectively. People can be paid different salaries for doing the same work. And alone, you have nothing to bargain with. You can be fired at the whim of management. Many people in this country still endure horrible working conditions and poverty pay, and they have no recourse but to be unemployed or work for another employer who is just a bad. In most other countries it is even worse. Employer and employee have different interests. The employer wants the most work for the least cost. Cheap labor. Without unions, the employer has all the power. If some union leaders are corrupt, throw them out. But don't throw the unions out with them.
