Workers should have the right to bargain for their working conditions and salaries. Alone they have little chance to be heard. As a group they have more power to be heard. The government has become very pro business at the expense of the business’s employees. The unions will work to make sure their members are paid a living wage. Business want to pay their works as little as possible. In the past they have forced their works to work off the clock which means they do not get paid for the time they worked.
