Every industry in this country needs a union. Every. Damn. One.
I’m not a recent convert to being pro-union by any means. I remember way back at the start of my career watching the uncompensated overtime with no comp time stacking up and thinking “damn, why can’t accountants have unions so we’re not drilling ourselves into the ground with these fucked up hours?”
The number of places I’ve worked that intentionally understaffed knowing they could get any hours they wanted out of us because we were all FLSA “exempt” (HA) and no one could do anything about it… Sheesh.
Even where I work now – it’s not horrible, but yeah, tech workers need unions, too.
Everybody needs unions.
