@Subway11 -I personally have no desire to ever join a union because I don’t see the need in having one. I think that unions can adversely affect businesses because they impose demands of the business but don’t necessarily raise the productivity standards of the union members.
So you have people making increasingly more money without having to produce more. When companies are bound by these unions they usually face financial problems because businesses exist to make a profit and it is difficult to pay employees more money without seeing additional productivity from them.
I also think that the fact that the employees that are part of the union have to pay dues for membership in the union and don’t necessarily see the results that they want from these unions is another reason that union membership is not for me.
Some companies are getting around union membership by offering their employees more benefits and higher wages then the union would.
