everyone i know has negotiated a salary, vacation etc upon being hired. alot of times the company you might be leaving offers you more to stay. like i said, leverage is a good thing. dont be scared, just ask next time and surprise yourself.
and yes i went from working 40/hr wk to 60+ after union voted in, for the same pay. we had free insurance provided by the company. we also had a pension that the co. payed. they stopped pension and payed us all depending on how long we worked there. i didnt mind cause i wasnt stayin to retirement anyway. it was a nice check.
what the heck is so hard to understand ? my experience may be different from yours. it doesnt make me a liar.
This shit your making up is true?!
