16. I can explain what happened
At one time, about the same time you and I entered the workforce, everyones pay and benefits were patterned after union workers pay and benefits. Didn't even need to belong a union to have everyones pay patterned after union pay and benefits. Just the threat of the workers organizing and becoming unionized was enough.

But a lot of Americans fucked up and and stopped supporting our union workers whenever they could. So guess what happened? Now everyone's pay and benefits are being patterned after non-union workers.

Stop and think back about it for a minute and try to remember if this is what you have seen happening about since 1980? Because this is exactly what happened.
