Yup. Gotta agree. I've worked two union jobs in my life only because to get the job you had to be a Union member. We had guys that were given a job in the AM, in the labor pool. A job that probably took a couple of hours to do. They did the job and disappeared in the mill for the rest of the day. Happened all the time. We also had guys who would take a 2 or three hour mowing job and turn it into a 3 day event. Hanging a simple bulletin board that me and my pal Susie could have done int 20 minutes turned into a 3 day event as well. For God sakes don't change a litebulb. They need an electrician for that. By all means be a druggie or Alcoholic. The Union will then want the company to pay for your rehab treatment. If you happen to be a thief and remodle your basement with material you "borrowed" from the company and got caught. Well the Union will go to the wall for ya. No fan of Unions. Never have been and never will be.
