Aren't unions a thing of the past?
At a time when pay inequality is this severe, unions are more important than ever. The owner class decides your pay, whether to fire you, what health care (if any) you get, what kind of house you can afford, whether you can afford nicer shoes for your kids. The gap between rich and poor has gotten steadily worse for decades. It's not a coincidence that across those same decades, union membership has dropped.
What about union corruption?
Do you think an organization of workers, controlled by workers, is going to be more or less corrupt than what goes on behind closed doors in your boss' boardrooms? There is a lot of anti-union sentiment going around because the owner class can afford media access. If you have concerns along these lines, talk to your union representatives yourself and make up your own mind. Or better yet, organize your own workplace and run things the way your co-workers want to.
Financial aid, idea
There used to be a thing in Judaism where there would be a box in the courtyard of the Temple, and if you had money to give away, you would secretly put it into the box, and if you needed money, you could secretly take it out of the box.
What do you think of setting something like that up for our community?
