13. I don't see why we can't do both

Are we supposed to live in a world where only union workers get to retire? A decent retirement/pension is worth well over $1 million probably more like $2+ million. Union workers are approaching 1% status.

Non union workers deserve just as much chance at a full life. This could be done be making SS more livable. Encouraging the creation of good jobs, and discouraging bad jobs, which the current Democrats seem to be fully pursuing. Whereas Republicans think a minimum wage job is as good as any. We can't return to that frame of thought.

I don't care what color your collar is white blue or orange or if you belong to a union or an internet chatroom. There should be dignity in life for everyone.
