    Default How Unions Can Prosper in the 21st Century

    We need unions to help us keep vital in our old age?

    And please note, this came from my "far left leaning" source.
    However, it's not yet time to write the obituary for labor unions. They can remain relevant, vibrant components of the 21st century if they can help workers craft longer, more productive careers. This is what workers need, and unions can play a leadership role in giving it to them.
    A century ago, it was a fine idea to help laborers secure a concrete retirement age with good benefits. But in the 21st century, as we plan to live into our 80's and 90's, unions need to develop their mission so they can help their members stay valuable to employers throughout their historically long lives. Rather than focusing on ways to help their members retire early, can unions find ways to help their members work longer?
    As Michigan's Governor Richard Snyder has said, this "right to work" legislation is an opportunity for labor unions to re-establish their value proposition. There is no greater value the union could have to individuals, businesses, and society than helping people remain vital as they age.

    Really? I have to do this till I'm 65 anyways just to get what scraps are left over, I'm already beat to hell at 54 and doubt I'll make it working to 65. If/when somebody from the local/IBT tries to feed us this crap I might just tear off the one arm that's barely attached to my crumpled carcass and beat him with it
