Who protects you from getting fired? Who has your back when things at work get hard or when your employer decides to increase your share of health benefits?
If you’re like me, the answer is easy: no one except yourself.
Advocating for yourself keeps you working as hard as you can to keep advancing and growing in your career.
As a writer I can tell you that no one will fight for me if my job were threatened. Like you, I can’t get lazy in my work or someone else will come along and work harder.
Advocating for one’s self is better for the employee and for the employer. Who wouldn’t want a workforce determined to work hard and do all they can to keep their jobs?
That’s my thought process for my position on the auto union.
