16. I think we're heading in the right direction already
We want to get to a point where nobody needs to worry, and nobody is seen as better than anyone else due to their status. Fact is that everyone can't be in a union. Most people do not even keep the same careers for more than a few years. Obama mentioned that social safety nets encourage risk and innovation, an environment where people are not frightened to step out of line.
I don't think we need to live in a world where people are expected to follow a prescribed path in order to retire, which unions often have. If that's what someone wants, that's fine. Most careers, though, do not even have a prescribed path.
If we continue to pursue innovation and vote Democratic I think things will work out. Personally I think that technology is at a point where most people should not even need to work, and most jobs are unessential and unnecessary.
