Shreya, a blogger from Florida, is using her platform to remind us how important unions are both during times of crisis and times of peace.

Fair treatment and protections for myself and others is very important for the advancing of society. People should know being in a union helps ensure fair treatment and work conditions. It does matter that someone is fighting for fairer treatment and protections for you because otherwise there will be a prevalent lack of equality present in every field.

Being in a union has made a difference for me because it has helped ensure that I as a healthcare worker always get paid fairly despite my race, gender or age. In the healthcare field, sometimes there are differences in pay, just like every other field but being in a union has helped ensure I was always paid fairly and if I had any concerns about my protections and treatments there was someone I could go to and get answers.
