Are any of you a member of SEIU Union 1199? I'm just learning about these things. (I'm 22). What is the benefit of joining a Union as opposed to staying un-unionized? If there is anyone apart of this Union, SEIU 1199, please tell me how it has benefited you. I was told that once I become a CNA, i'm automatically a union member, or do I have to apply?
The benefits sound amazing, as I would love to go back to school, but I am wanting to hear from someone who is apart of SEIU 1199 OR a Union in general and would like to know how this has helped you and why you chose to join a Union. What if I am the only 1199 Union member at the facility I work for, am I still going to be entitled to my benefits through the union? Please just let me know how the whole process goes.
I'm also trying to figure out how this whole 401k thing works out.
Are there people out there with more than one 401k because of job changes? Are there transfers?
Ah, your parents should teach you these things huh? Its funny because my little brothers and sisters will probably be millionaires when they grow up because I teach them everything I learn about financing from when they are young. My brother is 9 and has $500 in his PIGGY BANK ROFL (more than some adults!)
