Why Unions Matter

Why Unions Matter

by Dominic Cloutier


Wonder how we've come this far?

Raising standards, and the bar

From mopping floors to making batter

look no further:

unions matter


Where one voice speaks but no one listens

sweat above the tired brow glistens

while fat cats waddle sleepily

we must speak up:



NO! we'll say, we won't work longer,

stuck together we are stronger


give us less than we deserve ?

we'll picket until our demands are heard


we'll form a line, we'll get respect

confront your privileged neglect

your illusions will be shattered

you'll see clearly:
