Re: The value of unions is waning (Comment, June 17)
Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a refreshing view, and for having the guts to print it! You basically spoke my mind for me.
Having been self-employed (as well as my husband) for many, many years, and contracting always for small-business clients, who are in the same boat, the whole union thing really grates on me. I wonder why they think they deserve more than the rest of us? It’s just a mentality created and supported by the unions (an inflated sense of entitlement) and as Canadians, it’s only politically correct to be supportive, right?
The world is changing, and all of us need to be creative in order to survive with less, or find other resources to support ourselves with. There’s no reason why they should be any different.
Good on you for having the guts.
