    A union is simply an employee organization—protected by law—where a group of workers joins together to improve and guarantee their wages, benefits and working conditions. A union also gives employees a way to achieve respect and fairness on the job and a stronger voice to impact employer decisions. Without a union, employers have 100% control.

    By joining together you will have far more power to make positive changes and gain protections in your workplace than you would alone or with a just a few co-workers.

    Or the union gets too powerful and ends up running the company down (or helping to).
    I'm all for construction, police and postal unions.
    Construction for the structured educational system, although some areas have bad habits.
    Police (Firemen and EMT) due to their unique requirements.
    Postal...well, mom is a member.
    But to use an oft mentioned group - UAW, some unions have outgrown their usefulness.

    PREGNANCY Q&A and more!

    Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
    A: No, 35 children is enough.

    Q : I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
    A: With any luck, right after he finishes university.

    Q : What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
    A: Childbirth.

    Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
    A: So what's your question?

    Q : My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labour, but pressure. Is she right?
    A: Yes, in the same way that a cyclone might be called an air current.

    Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
    A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

    Q : Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labour?
    A: Not unless the word 'child support payment' means anything to you.

    Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
    A: Yes, pregnancy.

    Q : Do I have to have a baby shower?
    A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly

    Q : Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
    A: When the kids are in university.
