Unions SUCK- I would not want to work anywhere that had a union- no way-- UNION'S are horrendous money making crap factories........just my opinion
Right on. Who wants job security, contractually guaranteed benefits and a good pay check when you can live on the edge? Here's to losing your benefits on a whim, being fired for no apparent reason and waiting to find out if and when you'll get a raise -- and how much. I love a surprise!
By the way, I'm only a nursing student, but it's thanks to my years in the Teamsters that I could afford to quit my well-paying job and take two years off to go back to school full-time -- and really, that I could afford to become a nurse at all, since my retirement is already fully funded. Had I been working today, New Year's Day, I'd've earned double time for the first eight hours on the job and triple time for hours after that. And don't get me started on turn-around time. How does that compare to what nurses are earning in non-unionized hospitals?
You think unions suck? I sincerely hope this is one lesson you never have to learn the hard way. As for the poster who says the unionized nurses are earning less than others in the same area: Sorry, I don't buy it.
