Re: [humourous interjection] Re: long term goals of debian membership

Here here Ben.

Without unions employers would screw their workers with long working hours
and low wages (or no wages). Stuff the employers, they are alright. The
"little man" in the street needs someone to fight for him, and a union of
workers is one way to do it.

Unions are absolutely essential!
