    Would you ever go on strike?

    For the purpose of this poll, assume you are a member of a union

    Depends...I think going on strike because the company has downsized its chickens in the Christmas Hamper as a gift to its employees is peurile and deeply offensive. I have never received any "bonus" in my job.

    If it is to take away working benefits and to generally destroy working conditions .....sign me up buddy. :thumbs:

    I am a school teacher, but I have never joined any of our notorious unions. I don't know. I guess I'm just the good old fashioned anti-union republican. I realize that unions had their place, but... I think it would be very hard for me to refuse to do a job for what I had been voluntarily hired (I wasn't a slave, in other words). Now, I just might strike for moral reasons (for example, I was told I had to teach evolution, or teach that condoms were completely safe) but not for financial or other material reasons.
