I laugh out loud, when I hear someone claim that a union shop "charges less, but pays more".....
I suppose a union shop can defy gravity too?
Would the union folks have us believe that union shop owners are somehow more benevolent than their non-union counterparts?
A non-union shop can send two guys with wide-ranged skills out to do a job....while the union shop has to send 4-5 guys out, to do the same job.
Why? Because in a union shop, the guys are bound by rules as to what they can and can not do.....one guy can do piping but not the electrical....another guy can to the wiring but not the sheet metal....yada, yada, yada.....So, what does the CUSTOMER pay a union shop versus a non-union shop for the SAME JOB when all is said and done?
I'll never forget the time that as a young lad, I went with my Dad and his electronics company to do a trade show at McCormick Place. A Teamster had to back the truck up to the dock.....a Dockworker had to unload the truck and cart the display to the floor.....then a Carpenter had to assemble it....then an electrician had to plug it in.....
Or, another FAVORITE story.....We moved from Chicago at Christmas of '73. One of Dad's old customers decided to build a new grocery store, right next to his old one. The "union electricians" couldn't figure out how to do the case wiring.....So, Dad flew back to Chicago to help the guy that took over his business wire up the cases.....BIG TROUBLE.....all the other union trades threatened to walk off the job.....so, the store owner had to pay the useless "union electricians" to sit on stools for 8 hours a day, while Dad and Tom wired the cases.
Oh yah....I just LOVE unions.....the biggest obstacle to productivity in our country today....right up there with taxes and government regulations.Technical incompetence is NOT a sales tool....

We have poor people that are fat because they can eat more fattening food than I do on their EBT card purchases. I am paying for their food, their healthcare, their education....and yet, most of them stay poor.
Now, I can tell you why that happens.
They are comfortable.
Being poor is SUPPOSED to be sufficiently uncomfortable, so that you struggle to make changes in your life situation so that you end up NOT poor. We stopped making poor people uncomfortable with the LBJ "war on poverty," which was really a war on discomfort and inconvenience. We have more poor people than ever, and they are all poor (able bodied and mind) by choice.
