It seems like a ton of you have an axe to grind with people who believe in a fair wage. Are these people envious of the benefits, fair wages and camaraderie?
First I am a union electrician and have worked both sides of the isle, BUT there is always one guy here bashing open shops and there is always an open shop guy bashing union. It goes both ways, it is what it is, This is an OPEN forum.I'm not trolling at all. Just skim through the threads in here. There's always that "one guy" in most threads just threadcrapping, smack talking unions.
It's like going to a gun forum spouting gun control measures.

. I'll agree with you on the benefits and fair wages part ( although , plenty of open shops offer both ) . The " camaraderie " is certainly lacking in my local , and some members will throw others under the bus in a heartbeat , to help themselves to stay working longer ? Don't see much camaraderie in that ? It's a select group luckily , but that technique of self preservation spreads like a fungus , unfortunately .ScholzPDX said:
. Also , last time I checked , this was a forum for " electricians " ? Just because someone isn't a card carrying member of the IBEW , doesn't mean they're not electricians .ScholzPDX said:
Tradesmen in particular seem to disdain anyone who make more money than them, especially if they do so via higher education.
I must say chicken, I am growing tired of that statement. Having a different opinion is not " pulling one self up by pulling others down "!In the broader perspective , it's human nature to pull ones self up by pulling others down
