I'm hopeful this won't get to political and such.
I recently moved to Long Island and have been looking for a job. Most of the stuff I've heard back from is for Customer Service Jobs at call centers, which isn't much of a surprise considering I have a lot of experience in that area.
One job that I interviewed for today mentioned that I'd be part of a union. Never being one, I'm wondering what the pros of being part of union would be. I'm already taking a pretty sizable paycut (their offer is nonnegotiable due to union rules they said), so having another 44 dollars taken from my check every month hurts.
