Unions are a foreign concept to me since I am in the south and I've never heard of any down here. I find them interesting and not sure how I feel about them. I know my ex's dad has great benefits from being in one. He worked for the mta in nyc with no education or previous training. They definitely seem to be beneficial in that case. Down here it's pretty hard and you need to be aggressive to make money. That's just my take.
