Dallasfan824 saidNo, they have out lived their usefulness. In the 21st century there is no need for them. Now all they do is protect the lazy and over pay them for doing bad work.
I can't justify the actions of every union in every situation. Like I said in my earlier post, some of them have acted quite aggressively.
What I can say is that people who hold opinions like these need some perspective.
Maybe you could swap with the hotel cleaner for a month, cope with the physical demands of the work as well as trying to provide for a family on $3 and hour plus tips if you're lucky and the place is busy.
How will you provide your children with an education and adequate healthcare?
Everyone should have the right to work in a safe environment for a wage that actually allows them to function in society and doesn't banish them and their children to a life of poverty.
It's obvious that the cleaner and her fellow workers do not have a union or a body that's working for them to better their conditions.
Something else that really gets me is this assumption that people who work low wage jobs are somehow lazy. A lot of these menial jobs in factories, kitchens, laundries and farms are exhausting.
An amazing book based on a journalist's struggle to survive working for minimum wage in America.
