Personal Fun Fact Ha Ha: my last steady job was at a union shop. Until I saw it written out on my pay stub I didn’t understand how much pride I could feel in paying dues. Union membership granted me a stable work schedule, incremental raises, time and a half for holiday hours, the works.
I’m doing my level best to hijack this post for solidarity, because too many people are working cruddy jobs or desperate to land a cruddy job. Dunno if there’s a better future. Just putting the idea out there.
