Don’t think there’s a labor union for you? The IWW is a union for all workers:
I used to be indifferent to unions. And then a few years ago, I (and my colleagues) had a major problem with harassment and other issues from the top management. Was at a meeting where we were asked by HR to be forgiving because the leadership was of “a different generation”. I snapped and turned to my supervisor’s boss and said, “We need our union rep in here. Right now.” After that, I didn’t go to a meeting with HR on this issue without my rep. It got resolved better than I’d hoped. HR is there to protect the employer. Your union will be there for you.
