“Ever since I remember, my mom has been a member of a union. Unions are important because they allow for employees to communicate with each other and with people [in] higher up positions…Especially right now, unions are important in keeping employees safe in the pandemic. I have watched first hand how unions benefit employees and my mom’s union was able to give me a scholarship to help with my college!”
