You do not need a union to make good money, you only need a brain.
The Corporation I work for in the SE hired me off the street at $10 per.
I came in with good experience, and selling ability. I average $400 bonus each month.
I actually retired before I got this job. Now, 8 months in they have offered me $14 to go into management.
We have cashiers who are not capable of going beyond the job they do.
They need supervision, and correction all day. Half the time I find them on the phone
Texting, facebook, ECT. They will not be offered a raise, a promotion, or full time.
If there was a union here they may be entitled to a raise. Thats a scary idea.
These people just do not care.
We do get good cashiers, however they do not stay cashiers for long if they are good.
We give them a raise, change them to another position, promote them, make them full time if they so wish, and many go onto management.
This is how workers get $9 an hour in the SE, by not caring about work.
So when I have to walk to the register for the 25th time in a day to fix a mis-ring, incorrect change, or to do a void because someone got frustrated with the cashier and left, it reminds me. "the world needs witch diggers too" -caddy shack.
Now take away the safety
net. Take away the section 8, the food
stamps, the free healthcare, and you will find people will care more about their job. Because if they lost
it they would be on the line at a soup kitchen.
Defender should move the warehouse to a better state, hire people who are not in the union, and crack down on those making errors. 6 shipping errors is too much.
Imagine ordering a hummingbird fishfinder
and getting a 15" raymarine
Would you return it?
Now if you were the guy getting the hummingbird you paid raymarine
money for, you sure would. Its a hassle to us, its an expense to them, and I think they are being too lenient.
