What will a union get you that you can't get for yourself? Every business has their dumb, incompent managers but people are always allowed to speak up and go to higher ups -- even at McDonald's. Face it, unions are a business, interested in money -- yours and mine. Their income is from your dues and fines. Sure they promise more of this and less of that, but they eventually price the organization right out of business. Look at GM -- thousands of workers out of work, even none GM workers -- and all they get is strike pay. That's not even a living wage. If they really want to make a difference, go back to work, work with the company to make a profit and they will have secure jobs and more money. If not, they get what they got! My advise, if you wife truly loves working at McDonald's, she should set up a meeting with the owner or manager and demonstrate her abilities to show she is worth more money. This is a buyer's market.
