The Black Death in the mid 1300s wiped out approximately 40% of the European population and brought about the collapse of feudal society. The serfs gained newfound bargaining power as not enough remained to service the monied “nobility”. It’s time to reverse the “slave” mentality of American business through worker unionization. A massive solidarity movement helped establish the middle class in mid 20th century America, and it continues to be a foundation of societal success in European countries like Sweden, Norway, etc. Although I have had several successful side businesses, I have always been in a union and have seen firsthand that it’s an effective deterrent to greed and abuse.
