23. Well, before anyone starts considering something
like this as an option. remember one thing. without being a member of a recognized union, there would be no protection for the workers. they COULD be fired for an unexcused absence from work. it would hit the corporations hard, that goes without saying, but a few million people suddenly unemployed will not feed, house, or care for these people who lose their jobs. in order for the people to be protected from retaliatory actions from employers, there has to be a organized union in place to represent them.

also, what about people who like their employers? what about the mom and pops businesses? should they participate as well? what about people who work for companies who are socially conscious and look out for their employee's? should they participate as well? just some real life issues people need to think about before running off and going on a massive strike.

institution a Nation Labor Union WOULD provide the some of necessary protections for employees and enable them to boycott with representation and protection from retaliatory action.
