“Without unions, the workplace for a lot of us would not be the same in this country. The presence of unions are so important in this country because they fight for equal opportunities in the workplace such as equal pay and better wages. Unions make sure that the voices of workers are being heard, and that they aren’t facing any type of discrimination.

…in 2015 there were 7.6 million union members, which is 1.5 million more than in 1983 (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics). The presence of unions are very crucial to have in this country. Who knows how life would be without [them] today.”
