Program: Why Unions are Necessary
Speaker: Nate Fairman
Unions in American began in the late 1880s and worked to free workers from 12 hour days, no vacations, low pay, and no security. Union membership peaked in 1970, but has steadily declined since them. At the same time, worker pay has been stagnant while owner and management pay has soared. Mr. Fairman will provide a brief history of unions and why they are still essential today.
