Why Unions Are Important
Unions are important everyone including non-union people rely on the unions to set the standards, proper wages, proper working conditions for Americans and the middle class. When a non-union contractor wants to know how to estimate his or her carpentry job they look at the prevailing wage that union carpenters make in the area.
And the beat goes on. The unions are the backbone in this country and without them people will get paid very little for doing a whole lot and that is what the union try to prevent.
The carpenters union is not complete they are constantly working on improving Unfair acts in the unions and corruption at times. They are not perfect but their standards and their motives are perfect. They try to uphold what is good and right in America and that is to try to give the middle class a fair shot at the American dream.
If you are a celebrity or an actor that is reading this material remember that unions helped build America if you hire union you are helping others achieve the American dream and you are upholding the rights and values of millions Americans in this great country.
