1. I belonged to the Retail Clerks union from 1964 until 1971.
I graduated from college in three years with money in the bank and no loans thanks to Union wages (and living at home with my parents as an undergraduate). Those same union wages helped support me, my wife and daughter while I was in law school. Years later I was on the other side of AFSCME quite a bit and they won about half the time, usually because someone in management was shoving someone around thinking they could get away with it.
