This weekend, let's remember that the weekend was brought to you by unions. Our typical weekend tradition often involves posting a music video, so here's a golden oldie that is sadly missing from the airwaves in this "race to the bottom" era of union busting and outsourcing:
Regarding the idiocy of anti-union troglodytes, zrm posed this question in a comment at the House of Substance:
Why is the fact that union members receive decent benefits seen as a criticism of unionized work, and not as a criticism of non-unionized work?
Are all of us supposed to aspire to crappy wages,lousy hours and non-existent benefits?
Why indeed? Riffing off of one of the greatest comedic scenes in film history, and Australian satirical bit poses the question, "What have the unions ever done for us?" Yeah, what?
