I will not ever join a union. Though they might be
helpful to many, they are hurtful for the truly
ambitious and true out-of-box thinkers and doers.
Plus, once you unionize, it takes forever to get
anything done within the union, especially if it goes
against the pre-established bylaws of the union. No
thanks, I'll keep doing what I'm doing.
