The Union Worker

Don’t believe anyone damning the union worker woman or man

We just want to get paid doing the best that anyone can

Who all got families to feed and somehow pay the bills

Nobody on earth gets by just on strength of will

 

It’s an old, old game of “us versus them”

Quality versus quantity, and people versus profits

Cheap labor rip-offs, and that bottom line

 

We don’t want any handouts & no acts of kindness

We’re doing work right and to spec, all we demand is fairness

 

Show some good faith, and show some goodwill

When we sit down at the table, let’s both be reasonable

Management & shareholders got to understand that the bottom line

Is keeping the dream alive for a hardworking family man

 

Union worker are easy targets for overpaid talking head pundits

Whose heads are so empty that if it weren’t for the mirror they’d never find it

Let’s keep America strong by negotiating right, not wrong

 

A man or woman paid a fair union wage

Can outperform 3 or 4 scabs by anyone’s gauge

 

Remember the mindset of the union worker

We work harder, cause we live better

We work smarter, and we live longer

We work sharper, cause together we’re tighter

We work harder, and we are happier

We’re The Union Worker
