What about the raises the management got? Were they based on merit? In my union, you don't get raises without good performance reviews. Mind you, we haven't had anything for over 5 years, and only the fact that we have a union prevents the city from imposing on us what they did to the non-reps, including axing the pension and charging several hundred more per month for health insurance.
Remember how food stamps were an issue in the election? Did you know that a majority of the people working for Walmart need to get food stamps? That's because the company doesn't pay a living wage, and has worked to avoid paying things like overtime and healthcare. How's that for welfare, they make us pay for their workers! That's why we still need unions.
How very Ayn Rand of you, you don't need help, as if that were actually true to begin with, and even if it were, screw those that do.
There is a fine line between "hobby", and "mental illness"
