I know that my current rights are a result of years of union labor and organization, and respect those that are able to contribute and be a part of such a collective. Minimum wage, paid leave, and employee healthcare are all examples of union-won rights that many people, including myself, have benefited from. While private employers sometimes threaten retaliation against union activity and collective bargaining, organizing allows employees to have a voice across all fields of work. For example, my high school public school district, through teacher unionization, was able to make their voices heard and advocate for a safer, virtual start to the school year. Now more than ever, we can see the direct impact and importance of such an organization.
