Dh is currently a union plumber, making $32 an hour. He has not worked since October and they aren't sure that anyone will go back to work anytime soon. He was recently offered a job with the VA. The problem is, they pay starts around $22/ hr. BUT he'll have the security of never being laid off. Would you take the job and just forget about the union?

**He took the job!!!! Deadline was today at noon!!! I'm so happy for him!**

Yes. He hasnt worked in 6 months. I would think any job would be better than no job.

I'd take it. I just quit a job that paid $7 more than my current because the job I have now is more secure.

I hate unions they control your life. Take the job. Security is always better.

BTW I thought security was the purpose of unions?
