This is repost of a blog I wrote in winter of last year when the protests against Governor Walker and union busting were gearing up.
Way beyond my wildest expectations, this post actually went viral.
I've decided to post this again here, not to try and prolong the success of it or recycle it, but because I feel it is still very relevant and can't be said enough. Especially with the Wisconsin recall elections less than a month away.
The right has made unions the boogeymen of our time. It is our duty to set the record straight.
Please share this with everyone you know. I don't care about credit. You can put your name on it for all I care. I just want the message out.
Unions are not a bad thing. In fact, we should thank them everyday of our working lives.
God Bless Unions!
