This is idealized and only a few unions ever truly seemed to work for the employees.

Personal Anecdote FTFail!

Here are a few things you can "blame" on Unions:

  • Weekends
  • 40-hr work weeks
  • Sick days
  • Being able to live wherever you want, not just a company house
  • No more child labor
  • Benefits
  • Fair hiring practices
  • Fair promotion practices

Now, please regale up with more tales of flight and fancy and how the unions are to blame!

My point is that at some point, people are responsible for their own decisions and their own positions in life.

Let 'em burn, eh?

No penny for the guy, eh?

I have a simple solution: Follow me around for a day (and a night).

Watch when the new guy gets ignored by his team members and forgets that Google exists so he comes to us expecting days of basic training on how to do his job.

Never answer a question directly. Require your Padawan to ALWAYS ASK THE DUCK before they bother you. If the duck can't answer the question, then it is okay to ask you. If you don't know the answer, then YOU need to ask the duck. Learn this lesson, you must.

If something is too expensive then "DON'T BUY IT". by pirating it you only give them an excuse to provide more lockdowns and inflate the price more.

Game of Thrones pirated; HBO doesn't mind.

Also, those media companies are run by Techno-Luddites who couldn't manage their way out of a wet paper sack with a flashlight and a jackhammer, so no wonder they don't understand how to watch shows on teh intertubes without a cable subscription.

People pirate because it is easier than being legit. If it was easier to pay, many would.
