"In the first season of the popular animated TV series, Archer, employees at the intelligence agency ISIS discuss unionizing for better pay and benefits. "Deep down, we all know we’re being exploited," one worker says in an attempt to agitate reluctant colleagues. 

The episode is an homage to the labor movement, with references to socialist union organizer Eugene V. Debs—and jabs at union-busting employers. Their boss, Malory Archer, isn’t pleased when she learns workers have decided to strike for a cost of living adjustment. She describes picketing outside the office as “entitled crap," mocking her employees, "’I can’t make ends meet,’ ‘I’m on food stamps,’ ‘my child died because I couldn’t afford new bone marrow.’ Just me me me me me.""
