I am so sick and tired of hearing about unions and strikes. Nobody should have the "right" to strike. If you don't like your job, or if you don't think you're being treated fairly, then what you DO have the "right" to do is quit your job. Go find a job somewhere else if you think you've got it so rough.
Your success or failure in your career should be entirely up to you, and how hard you're prepared to work. Don't hide behind union representatives whose only job is to create conflict in order to secure their own jobs.
If you are a public employee that relies on my tax dollars to pay your salary, and feel that I'm not paying you enough, or somehow not treating you fairly, multiply my frustration by 10, and that's how much hatred I have towards unions.
Time to abolish all unions and create a level playing field for all.
Just had to get that off my chest.
