New job. New steel toed boots.
"We are anti-union," the shift supervisor declared at orientation. After that, we watched a five-minute clip on the truth about unions and worker organizing. They will take big cuts out of your paychecks. Talking it out directly with your managers and supervisors is best. And also, unions take big cuts out of your paychecks. If a union organizer comes up to you, make sure you DON’T sign the union card. That’s how they reel you in. Remember, you don’t want that big cut out of your paycheck.
I’m grateful to have found a job so quickly after being laid-off as a consequence of the deceit and inadequacy of certain local government leaders. But, I feel like I am entering the world of Winston Smith in 1984. I must eradicate all illegal rebellious thoughts from my mind! Besides, if I can prove myself to the Party…er, the company, then soon I may get to wear their awesome shirts and drive their fancy trucks. Meanwhile, I must lift with my knees and not with my back and race the clock to glory.
