Don’t Rely on the Law:

By Ryan Boyd, Day Ramp Steward

In other countries, workers have greater say in the decisions companies make. Worker representatives may hold positions at the corporate board level. This is a result of strong labor laws and assertive union movements.

The US has long distinguished itself for having weak labor protections, by comparison. When laws like the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) were established in the early 20th century, the labor movement was probably the strongest it has ever been in this country.
