On the left is Nominal GDP per capita

On the right is the countries w/ highest percentage of their workforce unionized

All 18 of the most unionized countries are in the top 27 of GDP per capita & no other nation in the top 27 by GDP has more than 10 million citizens
The #US has the largest economy based off having the 3rd largest population but it ranks 17th in percentage of labor force in #TradeUnions

Imagine the power of our economy if over half our work force was unionized?
Sweden with around 11 million citizens is the 91st largest country by population but 83% of its workforce is unionized so not only does it have the 22nd largest economy in the world by size it ranks 12th on GDP per Capita

Sweden also has the 11th highest average wage

@GSA_UWaterloo #Unionize

UW is the only major university within Canada to not have a union for working students. If the anti-labour/ pro-capital forces within our employer's admin offer us more $, we must hold out for that amount AND a union!
Why do I urge my fellow employees to look beyond wage offers in favour of demands for union? Students at UW earn approximately 25-35% less per hour and work 12-25% more hours per course. More work per funding dollar means less time for research and study. #UnionsMakeADifference
UWaterloo is the only school in ON, and one of very few in CA, where graduate TAs have no union. By voting to bargain collectively for their wages and working conditions, TAs at other schools have secured fair wages and lower hours, freeing up time to focus on their studies.
