    How Do Politics Affect You and Your Family?

    How Do Politics Affect You and Your Family?

    Why should you – as a union member and employee – be involved in politics? Does it really make a difference who is elected and who makes the laws? Every aspect of our lives – even those we often take for granted – is affected by politics.

    From the time you wake up and the time you leave the house, you usually perform several activities. The following items are affected by politics:

    The water with which you wash your face and brush your teeth

    The electricity that lights the room

    The price and quality of food you have for breakfast

    The safety of the products you buy

    Most of our waking time is spent at work or in travel to and from the job. The following items are affected by politics:

    Your method of transportation and the roads on which you travel

    The conditions under which you work

    Your membership in a union and the right to bargain collectively

    The income you receive when you are unemployed

    We value our leisure time and the chance to “get away from it all.” The following items are affected by politics:

    The parks and lakes where you fish and swim

    The air you breathe

    The radio and television programs that entertain you

    Most of us want to see our children prepared to take on the responsibilities of adulthood. The following items are affected by politics:

    The schools your kids attend – the buildings, the teachers and staff, safety

    The opportunity for education and training beyond high school

    As a person grows older the later years in life become more meaningful. The following items are affected by politics:

    The age at which you can retire

    The income you receive during retirement (including Social Security)

    The quality and cost of health care (including Medicare)

    The life expectancy of each of us

     

    Please take the time to vote and let your voice be heard!
