Whenever someone speaks out against unions and the labor movement, remember what they have done for us. No movement is perfect, but the labor movement has improved the lives of every single working class person in this country, making possible a decent life for those not born into wealth and perpetual leisure.
The United States has long been dominated by an overclass consisting of the very wealthy and the power they yield over every aspect of society. The underclass contains all who must work to live, all who are subject to the laws and (informal but binding) rules created by the overclass to ensure each remains in their place.
Remember as we enter into open conflict with the overclass that the labor movement helped make it possible for us to survive, to be well educated, and ultimately to rise up against our oppressors. Together with the structures and leaders of the labor movement, we will set this nation on a better path to the future.
