i am always two key words away from singing solidarity forever, and for our mutual safety i cannot reveal them
@garbados programmers unionise?
@inmysocks hah! you didn’t think it would be th— It is we who plowed the prairies; built the cities where they trade;
Dug the mines and built the workshops, endless miles of railroad laid;
Now we stand outcast and starving midst the wonders we have made;
But the union makes us strong.
For the union makes us strong!
Well, at least it gave us the 5 day work week. And the idea of vacation/sick pay. Job site safety. And a zillion other things we hardly notice anymore.
Unions have their shares of issues, but they are far outweighed by *not* having unions. Yes, programmers should unionize. Lawyers and doctors are doing it, too.
@garbados feeling v called out rn
@June when i lived in boston this described like half of all offices i visited, but also have you thought about unionizing?
