Can you imagine a situation in which you would talk to your coworkers, decide that working conditions were unacceptable, and decided as a group that you would refuse to work until things changed?


If not, what do you suppose it is about your life now that makes it so different from the lives of the people who organized the first labor unions?

Easily, yes.

Take the Verizon strike as an example. If my multi-billion-dollar profitable employer told me that they needed to cut my compensation because the area of the business that I worked in was less profitable than it used to be, while the CEO was getting a $2 million cash salary, $3 million in performance bonuses, and $11 million in stock and options… yes, I'd go on strike too.
