Exploring the Need for Labor Unions in the US
Full time employees have the right to expect that their jobs will provide security and safety, as well as a salary that will allow them to take care of all their physical needs.

When there is conflict, employees may feel the need to form a union, or a formal body responsible for negotiating terms with management.
