    I bet you didn't.

    More like the Union gave you the rest of the week off, paid.

    Unions are great. They give workers a stronger voice so that they can get a fair share of the economic growth they help create.

    No Ian...
    Here in America we have a strong work/play ethic...
    I prefer to work when I don't feel good as it keeps my mind off the pain...
    Then one nice day when I feel great, take a sick day cause I'm sick of work...
    It's the American Way!

    And the American dream is having your wisdom teeth out.

    I came here looking for it, and that's what I got.

    Credit unions are great because they usually have your interests in mind, not just profiting for themselves.

    Unions are used to connect two lengths of small diameter pipe, and are available in threaded or socket weld. The design of a union allows threaded pipe connections to occur without turning the pipe, as the nuts of the union turn to make the connection.

    A union is simply an employee organization—protected by law—where a group of workers joins together to improve and guarantee their wages, benefits and working conditions. A union also gives employees a way to achieve respect and fairness on the job and a stronger voice to impact employer decisions. Without a union, employers have 100% control.

    By joining together you will have far more power to make positive changes and gain protections in your workplace than you would alone or with a just a few co-workers.

    Or the union gets too powerful and ends up running the company down (or helping to).
    I'm all for construction, police and postal unions.
    Construction for the structured educational system, although some areas have bad habits.
    Police (Firemen and EMT) due to their unique requirements.
    Postal...well, mom is a member.
    But to use an oft mentioned group - UAW, some unions have outgrown their usefulness.
