Most Labor leaders hate it when anti-union companies call unions “businesses,” as Amazon often does.
Unions are in ways a business. We’re in the business of taking care of our members. Our business is to keep you from going broke or getting broken.
Remember the old saying: ‘United we bargain. Divided we beg.’ Our business is also to keep workers from getting fired improperly. If you’re fired because your breath stinks, hell, we’ll pay $8,000 to arbitrate your case to save your job. Yes, unions need (their dues) money.
