More and stronger unions

More unions and stronger unions with more members will go a long way toward restoration of the middle class with good paying jobs here in the US. I support card check that will make forming unions and gaining representation easier. I also support the German model where publicly held corporations are required to have board members representing their unions. The percentage decided upon might be different, but I suggest one-third of the board represent labor, one-third shareholders and one-third management. Under the present law, the board of directors in theory represents share holders, but all too often, the board is controlled by management at the expense of both labor and shareholders. It is time for a change. Management is rewarding itself at the expense of the rest of us.
