Overture Online: September 2015


I am a proud union worker.

That means I am part of an organization that fights not only for my own benefit, but for everyone’s.

Unions are one of the only forces capable of effectively resisting the continual downward push on employee compensation. Consumer spending is what creates jobs and prosperity. Increased employee compensation leads to more consumer spending; it pumps more fuel into the engine that drives the whole economy.

That is what unions are fighting for.

That is what I am supporting by working in a union.
