Interesting, that most of you are not part of a union. Does the union not offer any benefits?
I'm part of a union, but then I also live in Sweden where unions have a strong foothold. I however do my own salary discussions always, that's not why I'm part of a union. In Sweden, everyone has nearly completely free health care I'd say, despite this I get benefits from my union in health care, speed up the process to meet doctors and extra insurances at a good price since my union has engineers and civil-engineers and few of us are sick etc we get a good price.
This is not how it works in usa I take it?
