I was taught about unions the same way I was taught about Republicans and Democrats. When I was young I asked my grandpa the difference between Rep. and Dem. and which party I belonged to. He said let me ask you this. Say you worked really hard in school, studied every night and did all work assigned to you and kept a 4.00 gpa, now your buddy never studied, never did his work and got a 0.00 gpa. Since he can't pass unless he has at least a 2.00 gpa we are gonna take that 4.00 gpa you kept and make it a 2.00 gpa and give your buddy the other 2.00 gpa so he'll pass. I said that's stupid I worked for that 4.00 gpa he didn't so he got what he deserved. He laughed and said welcome to the Republican party. A similar analization was given to me when asked about the difference between Unions and non-union shops except it was more like the guy next to you makes welds that look like crap compared to yours plus you make twice as many welds as he does because he screws around most of the day. Should you both make the same amount because you were hired in on the same day? I said no, they said then you should work in a non-union shop. Is this really how it works in a union? I am just curious, I live in a right to work state so union shops are few and far between. I honestly have nothing against unions or union employees. I just think in this state I am only gonna get a one sided view.
