Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

UFCW: “A Union Provides Job Security”

According to the UFCW, which is trying its hand in the blogosphere:

Some people say that unions don’t matter anymore; that unions aren’t relevant. A union provides job security. When you go home at night, you can expect to have a job the next day. In a world where sales giants like Circuit City fire the workers that have been the most loyal, what role do you think unions play?

Tell that to UFCW’s members who used to work at Farmer Jack stores in Michigan, like the one who said union bosses “were in it for themselves … They pushed us aside when it was over.” Tell that to auto workers who’ve seen their union grab the power to kill an industry, and along with it, jobs.
