@turtlebirb What you call Unions are what I call "Cooperatives". I am pro-cooperative, and advocating for cooperatives for a very long time. No joke at my level regarding this important topix. Cooperatives are definitely the future.
@stman @firstname.lastname@example.org In many situations, forming a worker co-op is not feasible, nor the best way to improve your working conditions. E.g. local actors, fast food employees at a multinational chain, grad students, etc.
I suggest reading up on the labour movement, which is distinct from the co-operative movement.
