Job Trek: The Next Generation

Steve Band

I’m going to be frank – I’d do just about anything for a good union job. But as a twenty-something worker with limited job experience who’s been seeking permanent, full-time employment for nearly a year, I’d be willing to take just about any job.

But I’d really like a union job.

Not just for the job stability, solid wages and good benefits (don’t get me wrong, those are huge selling points), but because I want to be part of the historic and ground-breaking Movement that’s responsible for creating, growing and maintaining America’s middle class.
