11/01/14 The UnionIf ever there was a group of workers who needed organized representation and protection against unfair exploitation, it's musicians. Most of us are not great business people, and we play for love as much as for money. We therefore are prime targets for everyone from club owners to symphony trustees to the mother of the bride. They all want music, but they would prefer not to pay for it. Rarely do they treat musicians, historically stigmatized as dispensable court jesters, with the same respect they extend to other professionals. We're lucky to have the musicians' union, and the union does a good job of seeing that some of us get what we deserve. In the U.S. and Canada, our union is called the American Federation of Musicians (AFM).
