The Union that Busts their Balls for You

Hey Mr. Businessman, remember us? In a display of brutal honesty, this decades old advert for public employees union AFSCME asks white-collared folk to acknowledge the people out there who are “doing a lot of shit work that you take for granted.”

Rumor has it that the improved voiceover was done as a joke during the same session in which they recorded the original. Whether fact or fiction, this type of video is what unions should have been producing all along. Drawing attention to the great class divide works wonders in promoting worker solidarity. “Hey, that's right, we do make sure their kids don't drink piss from no fuckin' water fountains!”
