In the 1950s over half the US workforce was union. 40 hr work week, ot pay, fair wages, better working conditions, were all brought about by the UAW. I know my history, it is you who are confused. If you really want to see what it is like without unions in this country, study about working conditions in the 1880s and 1890s. You have been miss lead by the propaganda that has been pumped into our society for 80 years by the rich. They have convinced people unions are socialist, or comunist, but it is all propaganda to turn the working class in this country against unions so they can keep even more of the wealth to themselves. I repeat, I know my history very well. It is you who needs a history lesson.
