Unions are meant to protect workers, they let us know that we are not alone in our demands and that it is okay to demand more for yourself! How many times have you been afraid to ask for what you deserve? Didn’t want to seem too greedy or ungrateful? That mindset is not your own. Unions are full of people who used to think just like that until it was realized that you should get what you are owed, you shouldn’t have to ask and you shouldn’t be afraid to speak up about it! It’s time to get what you deserve without feeling guilty about it .
