It's all fun and games until it's YOU that would be subject to the Marxism you push.

BuzzFeed Inc.’s U.S. journalists agreed to unionize, saying they would seek better benefits and fair pay after seeing some colleagues lose their jobs last month.

An overwhelming majority of workers were in favor of the decision to join NewsGuild, the labor union that’s part of the Communications Workers of America, according to a person familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified discussing details of the decision.

BuzzFeed’s move last month to eliminate 15 percent of its headcount gutted several parts of the newsroom, including the national desk and the health desk. Following the layoffs, employees took to Twitter and Medium to criticize the company for failing to pay all dismissed workers for accrued time off. Eventually BuzzFeed management relented.

“We want to remain spry and competitive, but we reject the argument that we must choose between freelancing in a hellscape gig economy for vampirical platforms or submitting to the whims of a corporation that botches basic HR tasks,” the BuzzFeed News Union said in a statement.

The workers asked for BuzzFeed management to recognize the union.

Unlike the government, someone will get laid off even if you unionize.  Unions are not always last in first out.

If they stop drinking coffee latte's, eating lunch out and dinner.  They could save up 6 months in pay, so if the did get laid off they would have something for falling back on. 

I can remember back when about 10 to15% of people had mortgages on for homes.  Now it's the other way around.  Two of my Uncle's built their own home with out a mortgage helping each other when it was time.

That's how I was raised. If you can't afford it, then you save until you can.
I built my own home by myself, hired no one, and never had a mortgage hanging over my head.
