I was blessed for thirty years to work in a job that had a union.
Sure, when you are a kid out of college, you have only what you studied in history and political science classes to supply your basic knowledge, but once you are in the position, what an education you get with it. You learned what previous workers fought for and won for you . The health benefits my Union fought for and won are the reason I won my most serious battle with cancer in the fall of 1993-1994.
Tomorrow is Labor Day. For me it’ll be a day of being thankful for being a lifelong Union member.
