I will be a union boss. You will pay me $250k a year to organize people and to have meetings because that's what union bosses do. I will make sure that you get a little extra money but in the meantime we will destroy the whole industry.

This is something that prob 8 of 10 new staff think every year. Unions suck. No.

This is an awful idea. And also very counterintuitive. The little guys would get hurt the most. Managers and senior managers would never push work down, because they have a gigantic incentive to do the work themselves. Then not only do staff not get any experience, they also don't get any pay.

I hope everyone is taking the opportunity to get out and vote for candidates that are PRO EDUCATION! Our votes can impact us, our students, our colleagues, etc. (By the way, our Union shared how many educators are not taking advantage of voting and those votes would have flipped some races to PRO EDUCATION CANDIDATES!).

Is it normal to get basically zero feedback? Brand new associate working at a mid sized firm. Been there a few months now and firm is still WFH. I get a fairly consistent amount of work. But I send my work product off into the ether and typically hear nothing or very little back (even when I follow up). I’ve gotten same vague “good work” feedback but that’s about it. I’ve drafted memos to clients and some briefs that have been sent/submitted nearly verbatim, so I assume that’s a good sign.

Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
