Sorry folks. Feeling particularly left wing tonight. If you haven't seen the multi-part documentary called "The Corporation", you can queue up all 26 parts on YouTube and watch for free.
That's cool if you disagree with the premise and even my left-wing ways, doesn't mean there's not stuff to be learned.
I realize that many of you probably don't share my political views and many of you that were raised to hate unions as socialist or communist. Maybe you just got stuck in a bad situation within a union - after all, union leaders aren't infallible.
When I was younger, I could think of little reason to join a union or care about one. As I got older, however, I pondered some thoughtful considerations over the fact that a whole bunch of people doing pretty well is better than one person achieving on the backs of others.
I get that you may still not like it, but even if you just get moved by a good protest song now and then, here's a Billy Bragg classic version of "There is Power in a Union" to remind you all of us "commie bastards" are about to overthrow the world and make your kids listen to rock and roll.
Happy Labour Day everyone!
