unions say they work for their employees and members but really its now just another endless piggy bank for union bosses. unfortunately my lefty dem brothern supports their actions and i am not a fan of this. a few times the unions tried to come into my work and pimp the workers into joining the clan. just to have another daddy telling me what to do, and for what less pay, more expensive insurance, "dues" and another big brother watching my every move. it wouldve halted my progression as i was younger than most and union dictates a military style progression so i would've been screwed out of well deserved promotions in favor or lazy old fucks that felt entitled to certain jobs due to their age. sorry you're 52 and still make 15$ an hr, there's a reason for that and its not favoritism. its anti idiocracy
unions are good for trades and federal jobs(yes pro sports too, even though bud selig would disagree), keeps craftsmanship and training at the best and allows fair wages for people that were once very taken advantage of and worked to injury or death just to receive nothing.
