17. There has never been a time in history where nobody was seen as better because of their status.

Don't get me wrong, I think it is a lovely idea. I just feel certain it won't happen.

But don't listen to me. I thought phones with cameras were just a dopey idea!

I am lucky enough to have a career where I can advance and move around but still have the benefit of a union, so I don't think I considered the lack of mobility that is percieved with unions. I do think that if unions were more widespread, that would be less of an issue. For example, the construction unions are independent of the employers. It gives the employees more of a protected free agent kind of status.
