its not the union that builds America its Americans and immigrants.
I once was a union boiler and chiller mechanic at a union shop and the older guys would do nothing but talk about other workers and play mind games with less senior employees. the older guys just would not do there jobs and point fingers at there fellow co-workers when things went wrong. after a while i could not deal with the drama and quit.
I now work at a non union shop and was promoted to manager after 6 months. I make twice as much money as i did before and its cause of my hard work and my strive to better myself not my union rep. if you have a fear of losing your job or you think your not getting paid enough for your work it should reflect on you as a worker not the companies unfair practices.
this is America and the old ways of bad companies are gone. Just stay hungry and work hard. MTW should go non union and weed out the lazy, good for nothing workers. IMHO
