It is unconscionable that a person can work 8-12 hour days for 6-7 days a week and not be able to pay their bills because their wages are so low. In the meantime, CEOs and Wall-Street executives are paid increasingly obscene salaries. We have to ensure that a worker receives fair pay for a fair day’s work. We also must recognize that unions play an important role in bargaining to guarantee that workers receive a livable wage and benefits to help support their families. Unions helped produce the greatest middle class in the history of the world and yet are under attack from politicians who take large donations from companies to promote right-to-work laws that are used to lower wages.
