Be careful people... When the union tried to get into Interstate Brands ie Hostess... The owners said NO and closed the business. Just because this is Elizabethtown don't mean it won't happen here. If you think about it, now a days the union means nothing. Oh yes the union gets you a good wage, but maybe that's why everything has gone up in price. Companies have to raise prices to pay for union wages. The only people making money are those in upper management, at the union.

Unions get you higher pay, they get you dues that you never see again and eventually you end up negotiating your benefits away.
They are useless. I pray you don't make the mistake of voteing one in. It's unneeded.

Jamie is correct. I find it amazingly funny that for all the dues paid if you vote to strike you get 6$ a day to feed your family and kids with. That is how they take care of you. I did have a job I was required to join the union to work there. Steel workers union. What a complete and utter joke and waste of money.
I met people who did not have to work because they where union. Just show up and sit. That's why prices keep going up.
Stop being lazy ass pieces of shit. Work for your money learn the word pride. Lazy azz sheepel

Some of you people need a history and economics lesson, unions built this country and we pay our dues so if your not union shut up cry babies, and if u pay dues but don't like to quiet, and I you dislike unions your and idiot....... Union workers make good money we don't need help, the same people that cry about how bad unions are, are same ones that cry about welfare, the two don't mix... So why trash talk a working man.. The reason prices go up is do to greedy corporate pricks.. Not the unions.. And if you think you don't need unions no more go ask Walmart works..

Also to the guy that was at hostess tell truth why did hostess go under?? And we both know it was not because of union, and is sad what happen to you, but if you blame the union your sad... Because in that case you was the problem in other words... The union is the workers that vote in the officers and contracts not the "union boss's" people claim... Long live the hard working Union worker, We get the job done....
