Unions are just an extension of far left radicals. A failing mindset.

I always get confused when people make comments about making Union bosses rich. You're making Lowell Mcadams and his cronies rich and what thanks do you get? Layoffs, screwed up quota and more workload dumped on you. Yeah i rather make Lowell and his cronies rich rather than contribute a small amount to a pool that covers Union representation, strike pay and Union local and national activity.
Oh and if you were paying attention i did say strike pay. Yeah im not gonna lie and say it was much but hey it was enough to get by the 49 days i was out in 16. And its not unless you do as they say its aslong as you are out there with your brothers and sisters. Now if you chose to be a scab why are you complaining as you got paid anyway.
Unions havent outlived their usefulness as theyre more needed now than ever. If you had more wireless stores on board you would have a better chance of fighting off layoffs, random quota changes, random metric changes, workload increase, policy changes and you would have a say in any coaching or observations.
Right now you're just taking it up the butt every chance you get and all you can say now is thank you may i have another.
BWAHAHAHA that's right make the Union Bosses rich while you work to support them with your monthly dues. Think they will be there for you when the cuts come? Think the Union will pony up any money for you when you are riffed? When you go on strike think the Union will be paying you? Not unless you do as they say during the strike and then it's peanuts, nothing you can live on. They'll fight to keep just enough people paying dues to support their lifestyle. Unions were once needed but they have outlived their usefullness.
Yup, keep listening to the right wing propaganda & all those preachers accusing Unions of perversities like 5-day work week and voting in all of them.
I took advantage of tuition assistance and earned my degree on the company’s dime and would Unionize in a heartbeat.
We missed the mark when the CEO's starting cashing in big time in the late 80's and we were warned and did nothing, now they've become selfish mongers. Sorry, no one CEO is worth 10000 times what they were paid before while employees suffer with less incentives, no pensions, bonuses, healthcare option etc. I used to think that about Unions until I realized it was bull we were being fed. Verizon has reached it's peak. So where is Lowell's worth now? I bet he's not hurting. He's suppose to get paid the big bucks to lead us upward. Wh
Lowell, is that you?
Your an A [email protected]#$%
Agree, unions are failed, lets give trickle down economics, tax cuts and ability for corporations to write laws favoring corporations yet a third try ( the Reagan and Bush efforts worked so well for me).
I concur; this world is meant to be a work-camp for the elite, and soon the middle class will finally be extinct at which point we can get rid of democracy (another failing mind-set) and go to 100% oligarchy.
