Why Join a Union?

“If there is no struggle there is no progress…This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” —Frederick Douglass, 1857

“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” —Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis
