6. They should go after "white collar jobs"...

...way back when I was an Intern at a company, the "Account Managers" got so fed up with long hours, cut backs on commission, etc. THEY got together and contacted a union. The company flipped out so much (worried that this could spread elsewhere) that not only did they role back the cuts, they increased the commission, base pay, etc. provided they did not unionize. Of course, they accepted it and union really didn't try that hard to convince them in the long run they would be better (it was almost as if the union didn't know what to do with salaried workers).

There are unhappy "management employee's"...who feel like they are getting stiffed with health insurance increases, worsening of benefits, measly bonus checks getting smaller (which they count on as part of their salary) due to ridiculous growth demands that can't be meant. While "contracted" upper management gets fatter.

Just a thought...
