UNDATED (AP) -- Miners, steel workers and auto workers have them. Why not bloggers?
Bloggers say they work hard, even though their work in not intensely physical. So some left-leaning bloggers are thinking about unionizing, hoping to get health insurance, collective bargaining and even professional standards out of it.
One blogger says the work is very intense. He says: "You're constantly scanning for news." He adds: "your arm and neck and shoulder are wearing out because you're constantly using a mouse."
And the National Writers Union, part of the UAW, is trying to develop strategies to reach bloggers and encourage them to join.
There's decidedly less support for a union movement among conservative bloggers.
