    Join a union. Has you boss ever come to you and said it was a good time for a pay raise?

    As a boss, yes I have. Joining one of the corrupt unions (that would be all of them) will only push the country further down the road to economic ruin. And who wants to be under the thumb of union goons?

    At least Will was brave enough to put himself out there. Too bad he’s not any good at stand-up….

    Yep, just like a boss. You’re fine with corporations picking our pockets for BILLIONS, and telling us that there’s something wrong with the only outfits out there who are trying to PUT money in our pockets.

    That is a hasty, sweeping generalization to say, “all.” And it’s a rather parochial view to believe only unions have goons. Remember Henry Ford?

    So you’re fine with the union bosses picking your pockets for dues that you HAVE to pay to line their own version of corporate pockets. Given the thugs and goons at the top of most unions, I’ll take my chances on my own.

    I dunno, I might be kinda amused if our accountant made Bill the Cat faces . . .

    Actually, einarbt, yes. I have had several bosses over the years that have pushed to get me promotions and/or raises. Maybe it has something to do with being a valuable employee. Around 2003-4 the unions were sniffing around our business, trying to “organize” the technical staff. We basically told ’em to jump off the nearest mesa.

    Most of us who are vehemently anti-union are former union members.

    But I have to admit the country ran better when the POTUS was a former union president. Suspect some air traffic controllers would disagree, however.
