    Dude, I ain't your honey and your OP was misleading to say the least. You claimed the union kept you from moving on and that is a lie as you keep proving with every post you make. It's not the unions fault that you couldn't think or speak for yourself and there is serious doubt whether you can now.

    It is obvious your reading skills are lacking honey, my first post says early 80's when I was in the unions. It was clear, please focus.

    Hunny bunny, my reading skills are just fine, can't say much for your thinking skills though. You said you were working at a low skill union job for a tire company in the 80s and now you're saying you're a high paid consultant for coal and gas. Do tell how the labor union kept you from getting a job as a high paid consultant years after the fact?

    The job I just got is non-union. Full medical and pay started at 14 dollars an hour. I'll be making 20 dollars an hour in under a year. Non-union pays better, and gives better benefits.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Never stated that either, when will you start reading for real honey? I never said low skill, where did you get that? Union jobs keep people down, the group think always prevails.

    I belonged to a union in the past. I had no real opinion on it then and didn't pay much attention to it.

    My current career does not have a union.

    Again, that depends on your skill level and what industry you're in. Some people are not destined to be more than "ditch diggers," so for them, the union is a good deal with fair pay and good benefits.

    Especially if you only have a high school diploma or less formal education.

    What private company is going to pay a ditch digger $27.00 an hour PLUS benefits?

    In the real world, ditch diggers should not be paid $30/hour with benefits
