Thread Name: BS: Walmart Workers Strikes...
Subject: RE: BS: Walmart Workers Strikes...
I am also a product of a union family... My dad (UAW) never finished high school because his mother died early in his life and his father, a stone mason, was away too much working so my dad had to get by by himself at age 13...

But he made a decent living with Ford and as a result of if we were a middle class family and I, as many other kids my age, was the first of either side of my family to go and graduate from college...

That's what unions are about... Not the usual mythology or the few bad apples... Unions = opportunity...

The lack of unions in America is the reason why of all the modern western nations Americans rank high on all the bad stuff and low on the good stuff...
