Wow! What a list! I hope he can make significant headway. He has a high mountain to climb just to try to restore balance and normality after these crazy times.

Joe Biden's first 100 days as US president this is what he promises to do

As an ex-union member and delegate - now retired - this paragraph is good news:

"The president-elect is big on unions as well he says he'll deliver a plan to "dramatically increase union density and address economic inequality" in his first 100 days."

For me, unions work towards giving workers a voice and support instead of business owners and managers getting all the power. It helps to equalise some of that power and provide some balance through two-way communication. Yes, it can be confrontational, but it doesn't have to be. The unions I belonged to worked with the people in charge and helped to achieve some very good outcomes for both the organisation and the people working and managing there. IMHO
