Yates 12/1


the reading on Why Union Matter makes one realize the role of labor unions and why it is so valuable to have if you are any kind of worker.  As Yates says if you are not supported by a labor union it can make a lot of workers with almost no chance in backing themselves up in confrontations with the employers one- sided unpredictable actions. if a worker is not backed up within a labor union or is not part of a labor union it makes it hard to counter the employers decisions that they make for you as unfair as they are because they do have the upper hand in controlling the company if you are part of a union which is a whole gathering of workers you have more power and say as to what might happen.

    I feel that having labor unions is a major plus because the union is there to back an employee up in any situation. With labor unions employers can not terminate or mistreat workers very easily. I myself am apart of a labor union, although many people think they do not do much but what they dont know is that the union is there fighting for better wages and benefits.
