I really cannot understand why the middle/working “class” of the USA is so anti-union. Don’t they understand that it is ONLY through unionization that their rights as workers will be defended? Is it the incessant propaganda from the right that’s done this or a failing of the unions themselves?
I like to assert that the exsistance of a large USAn middle class is the direct result of unionization in the previous century.
Perhaps there are some historians out there they will tell me if I am basically correct.
A large middle class. You say that like it is a good thing.
I think the large middle class evolved from a large lower class. Yeah this means there is a bunch more consumption than there would be if we were all mostly poor but it is what I grew up with so it must be right, right?
