    I'm not a union member so I can vote for who I want to, don't have dues to pay, manage my own contract and can work if I want to without getting harassed.

    I'm a SAHM. It's definitely not union and well... I've had to clean up their shit. I've been peed on, bleed on, puked on and well... I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    My husband worked for the Post Office as a Mail Handler. It was union. It was also the worst job he's ever had. He saw another employee stab their supervisor and returned to work in a better job with in 2 weeks due to the union power. He wasn't even charged for it because the union 'handled' it all.

    He's non union now and wouldn't have it any other way.

    Not. Never have been. Make and have made six figures for many, many years. I actually have skills in high demand.
