Everyone Benefits From Unions2014.11.17quote-molly.ivins

“Although it is true that only about 20 percent of American workers are in unions, that 20 percent sets the standards across the board in salaries, benefits and working conditions. If you are making a decent salary in a non-union company, you owe that to the unions. One thing that corporations do not do is give out money out of the goodness of their hearts.”

—Molly Ivins (1944-2007), American Newspaper Columnist
