The follow- ing article discusses some issues you might consider. O n P a y d a y, U n i o n J o b s S t a c k U p Ve r y We l l B Y D AVID C AY J OHNSTON With the teamsters’ success in their two-week strike against United Parcel Service, and with the A.F.L.-C.I.O. train- ing thousands of union organizers in a drive to reverse a quarter-century of de- clining membership, millions of workers will be asked over the next few years whether they want a union to represent them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
