What they represent is why Unions are still needed today after all those abuses supposedly went away. Sad isn't it?

Maybe but life is tough and the only way to ensure your own success is to pay constant attention and take personal responsibility for every aspect of your life. If you wait for someone else to make you successful you are doomed to disappointment. You know this. I know this. Many don't. Hence all the whining when someone thinks he's a victim. Maybe if one doesn't want to be stuck in a crappy job at a big box store he could do something else instead of settling for a crap job.

I've done damm well by avoiding unions. I refuse to be placed in the same pay scale with lazy slobs who rely on others to do the work and get the same remuneration.

It doesn't matter if they are stuck at some crappy job. The same basic laws shoould be applied equally. It isn't a matter of job status, but fairness and following the laws. If companies won't do it, then someone needs to do it for them. Big boxes are hardly the only ones that skirt the law. The way they all were doing it in Illinois was to make everyone a salaried worker. That way they could avoid all the overtime laws. Illinois has since changed the law so they can't dodge that one. I never knew a company that had a Union rammed down their throat. The ones that got them easily deserved them with the crap they pulled. Don't want a Union? Then quit screwing the employees! Checks and balances works for me. Been on both sides of the table.

And how does one make sure the laws are followed? Not by sitting on one's butt and letting someone else do it all for him. What happens is the workers get canned but the union officials keep their jobs. Just ask the air traffic controllers. Gotta pay attention in life or you get run over.

The biggest abuser of employees is the gov't of course. I've got some friends who work for the Post office ( not mail carriers). Long hours and Soviet=like conditions.

I hear that the employees at the Ogden IRS Center have the highest rate of psychiatric drug use of any agency. Not surprising. How can one do such a job and sleep at night?
