13. If you work for a living, you should belong to a union....

It is time to disassociate union membership from employers. Make unions universal for all working class people....like AARP but without a profit motive. Employed or unemployed, unions should be a part of making life better for working families. Dues should be very minimal....$10 a year universal membership. No employer should be allowed to interfere with anyone's right to join a union.
We need serious Labor Law Reform, but first we need to get all workers on board to form One Big Union. A Labor Party. That is most of us, afterall. Why shouldn't we join with others to make life better for the vast 99%majority over the elite 1%minority. From there we can begin to organize worker owned factories and cooperatives.
