  •  Thank you Wendi (5+ / 0-)

    I also live in Texas, and am also employed in a non-union profession. In addition, I am a lot older than you. For most of my life I associated unions with things like requiring coal shovelers on steam trains. It has only been since I started to attend Netroots conventions that I have started to develop a more nuanced understanding of unions. I won't say I totally get it yet, although it is perfectly clear that Republicans want to neuter the political clout of unions. I think there are many people like myself and like Wendi who may be liberals, but who are starting from a position of ignorance about unions. We need simpler, better language for talking to folks like me.
