quote:Originally posted by ScottPersonally, I'm against it. Not just a union for carnival workers, but UNIONS in gerneral. They are nothing more than a organized mob strong arming employers. I see them them on the news *ing and moaning becouse 35.00 per hour ( auto industry) isn't enough to raise their family on. I see them complain that I can't raise my family if you don't pay 100% of my medical insurance. People are greedy... Period. If you take a job with any company regardless of the type job you do... you take it based on the information the employer gave you at the start. They told you how much money they were willing to trade for your services ( what ever they are) what benifits were available ( if any, and the law doesnt mandate employers give benifits) and then you either accept the job, reject it, or re negotiate new terms. Now having said all of the above, this does not release the employer from paying a fair wage, or offering benifits ( they are just not obligated by law to do it) It's smart on their part to be competitive in wages and benifits for employees. My father always taught me, you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with. Good emplyoees, and good managers go to where they are compensated for their skill levels. Good companies know their value and pay them for it. The rest is left to buy the time or skills of those with less to sell thus they are not as valuable.A smart company will be middle of the road on wages and benifits. You don't want to be the guy at the top of the list pushing wages to all time highs and paying for benifits that are useless, and unnessasary but you don't want to be dragging up the rear either.As for show personal, most have no training when it comes to money managment. They get a dollar they spend a dollar, and it's not always on food or shelter either. My help bums money from anyone and everyone to buy a sack of weed, a bottle of booze and will forego a nights meal to have one of these. Showowners have learned if you give them all their money up front it's spend it a few short hours so you give them a "draw" early in the day ( while they are at work) so they can eat a meal, then the rest at the end to do with as they please. They will more then likely be broke by day break. ( this isn't all empolyees but it is the majority)There is an old saying that an empolyee does just enough work to keep from getting fired, while the empolyers pay just enough to keep them around. I think their's a whole lot of truth to this statement.Getting back to the Union's in the work place ( regardless of industry) it's not an empolyers job to make you rich or to give you a raise, his only job is to give you a pay check and the right amount of money that YOU agreed to work for at the start.
