    Went down that road of working for a big timber company, and having to pick up the slack for no additional pay each time the company had a big layoff.

    Salaried foresters could not join a union, but hourly workers had one.  The so-called merit raises that foresters received were remarkably close to the negotiated raises that the union workers got.  I was always thankful for the existence of the union, even if I could not be a member.

    Been self employed 10 years now.  It's much more fun.
