One More Reason to Get Hammered Tonight

Written By: Mike Antonucci - Dec• 31•12

All alone because you work by yourself, for yourself? Do you envy those who get to march in the street and scream at their bosses? Don’t let the fact that you’re a freelancer keep you from the exciting world of organized labor. The Freelancers Union is here for you!

Created by a disgruntled labor lawyer, the Freelancers Union sports a membership of more than 170,000 nationwide, and is committed to “building a new form of unionism through creative, cooperative, market-based solutions to pressing social problems.”

It has an insurance company and a PAC associated with it, so it’s embracing the old form of unionism, too. Cheers!
