I did better on some bullsh*t 135 ride than you, so I should get paid more. lol What about all the companies that don't pay you any more than the next slob? Or the company that pays the new guy more than you because they need asses in the seat but don't give raises. I'll take the union job every time. You're delusional if you thing "hard work" gets you anything more than an attaboy in 90% of this industry. Unions bring the pay up and attract a better group of applicants.
