What do you do here?
I am a Labour Relations Representative. I help the workers in the factory get better pay and working conditions. A long time ago, factory workers would have low pay and no breaks. Although towards the end of the Industrial Revolution, they made unions. These unions would talk to their employers for better work hours and pay. The idea of unions still exists today and now I help the workers get what they want.
