“Last year when I had my second child I was so worried as to how to care for them both all by myself, but thanks to the people fighting for unions and union worker rights, my husband was given paid vacation for weeks and was able to stay with us and assisted me in the way he could.

We were even able to spend the Christmas together as a family, which was so important for me. This is just one of the reasons why unions are important in the country, they preserve our rights and benefits.”
