Re: Union effort
Skilled labor on the other hand is a completely different story. Though out history skilled laborers have been in high demand due to the nature of there trait. As a result employers have wowed them with cushier job settings.
Now lets talk about current job settings, as far as I know the telecommunications company I work for is the only nonunionized telco in the US. I know for a fact I make at least twice what a Verizon or ATT worker makes for the exact same job. In addition I get 6 weeks of paid vacation every year. To top it off I am a top performer so I get one of the largest raises in my department year after year.
But alas, you are correct if you are an under performing unskilled individual then yes you do need a union.
