While that may be true, these are more of a "namby pamby club" or meetup kinda unions where like-minded individuals share their learning. I thought we are talking about industrial unions, the kind that fights against capitalist corps and employers for the worker's rights and wages?

I’m saying it can be both or either, that’s up for discussion.

It’s about time we figure out a way for women to get paid an equal wage and help enable minorities who are otherwise discriminated against find employment IMHO. We also need to deal with the unequal footing created by the contractor culture in America. I don’t know how that noble goal is an “anti-pattern”.
