Hollywood is flush with unions: WGA, DGA, SAG, etc. Why don't we have any in advertising?

It’s a fun thing to talk about, but just not super practical or needed: 1) Americans have the highest advertising salaries in the world, by far, so it’s tough to say we need better pay. 2) American clients could easily outsource their agency needs if we became too expensive (this is why more than half of ad shoots now happen OUTSIDE of Hollywood and the US. Unions got too pricey.) 3) like Hollywood actors/support staff, going to a union model would probably drive up salaries for a select few, and drive it down for most others, with many others losing their place in the industry. 4) you think we have a diversity problem now? Wait until people are scrambling to get union cards...we’ll see a whole new level of nepotism and closed door policies. Unions work in industries where employees have little leverage and a high profit margin product, we dont fit the bill in those respects.

I am newly in a wheelchair and am unable to find clear information on the ADA website about what my job is required to do. I’ve talked with my Union Rep and they are checking. I’m requesting to be on a 504 plan, but I have no idea if they are required to add handicapped entrances or not. I know I have to scan my badge to use the button, but trying to scan my badge, open the door, and not drop anything seems a bit unattainable to me at the moment. Anyone have some insight or dealt with this?
