  •  Unions and Their Perceptions (0+ / 0-)

    Then you're thinking wrong. Don't feel bad about it, I was just like you a few years ago till I ran into a employer who didn't like following the law and bilked me out of around 30k. I knew the owners of the company and trusted them. Now I found out the laws that should protect me and my coworkers have holes you could drive a semi through. I go bankrupt I lose my house, the company goes, they keep everything (it was a LLC).

    But thats not really why there are unions. I've become a student of history instead of just science recently (its quite depressing). Heres some places to get started.
