Hey, I have a question:

To collaborate / hire union (the kinds of good people encouraging, helping, or otherwise in favor of workers' unions) ... especially when maybe dealing with different trade unions each proficient in their most preferred skilled trade ... what are some good ideas?

Our original version of Ecosteader had a setup like this to try to help workers localize (e.g. not have to do excessive fossil fuel commutes for jobs when qualified workers are available locally)

The "ws standard" we want to avoid is devaluing everyone like minimum wage does ( as ws have been and continue to be in denial of their own status as immigrants and unwelcome overstayers, they'll find out what it's like to be on the other end of that soon enough ).

Companies in the 70's, 80's and 90's organized around highly exploitative going concerns that should have been shut down long ago (or stayed shut down).
