So does the woman who was making $27 per hour cleaning bathrooms, that does not make it right. Your responsibilities and salary may be well matched, hers is clearly not. Economics teory teaches that salary is a reflection on the contribution one makes to society, politicians excepted. The bigger the contribution i.e. doctors the larger the salary and vice versa. That is no longer the case and unions certainly have many examples of that. Why should a person cleaning 4 bathrooms receive as much money as a nurse? And who really pays for this? In the short term the consumer pays, in the long term even the union workers will pay as there will be less and less employers here. That is not to say that unions are the only cause or these inequities but they are one of the most obvious.As a 27yr PROUD Union Worker, I appreciate the job and wages that I make.
If it was a union job and the regular employee was making 27 an hour to clean toilets...the super was probably making 40-50 an hour.Jchefboyardee said:Her pay may be in comparison to others within the buisness unit. I wonder how much her supervisor was makeing and how much the retirement package differs.
A lot richer? I just bought an SUV for about 23k. If I bought it from a company that had hard working employees who busted their ass to be proud of the end result instead of a bunch of union workers who were more worried about their next union meeting for a pay raise, Id be a lot thicker in the wallet.One question to ask, Where would America be without the workforce of the past and present?
