Fight for $15 Workers Finally Join a Union, But Not the One Paying their Salaries

Employees of the labor-backed social justice campaign Fight for $15 have joined a union themselves. The organizers joined the United Media Guild via card check. Comically, a majority of workers signed authorization cards desiring union representation. I’m left wondering why all workers did not sign cards. Apparently even when you work for a union, you don’t want to be in a union.

No time is set to begin bargaining.
