Let's talk about forming a union

What a great introduction to collective bargaining. Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin is hilarious. The cows have found a typewriter and are cold in the barn. So begins the negotiations with Farmer Brown. At first Farmer Brown is resistant to the idea of caving in to the demands of his cows. After all, cows that type? That's impossible! But when the cows go on strike and the chickens join in on the fight, Farmer Brown has to rethink his position. What choice does he have? A farmer can't very well run a farm without milk and eggs, can he?
