Sophisticated Yet Humble
You mean the. "Why should I join the Union when I get all the things they win anyway" thing?
As to the rest, unions can be no more or no less corrupt than their capitalist counterparts.
Funny how no one hardly ever says
"I'm not joining an insurance scheme because they are all corrupt"
" I'm insisting the CEO gets alcohol tested"
My boss is mediocre so I'll find another.
Non of us are completely immune to the capitalist spin machine are we?
Actually I said those last two things... company owner rather than CEO... several times.
I did not join a union because I did not need what they offered. There is no reason to join a union for what they fought for 20~50 years ago. When my job sucked and I could get a better one, I fucking quit then went and got it. But then, I did not have a family to support.
I am not anti-union in principle, but the unions in the USA have done themselves in.
There is a severe downslope in leadership in the USA over the past 30 years, and unions are right at the tip of this trend.
