@SC2: "protecting workers rights" is one of the things unions purport to do. they also increase barriers to entry for new/younger workers, artificially alter market forces, mandate contributions whether you actually benefit or not, and use said contributions for policy influence whether you approve or not. I was compensated for the late nights I spent. I agreed to do this job, understanding it would involve late nights, tight deadlines, and all of the typical rigors and forces if modern advertising, for a particular amount plus benefits. at such a time as I believe the benefit of working here is no longer worth the cost, I will leave. I have options - this isn't a coal mine, despite all our protestations - and ever more options as technology grows cheaper and entry into alternate career paths grows lower.

Depends on terms.

Admittedly, we’d likely be limited to who we get to work for agency wise, but that’s only until they agree to union terms. Conversely, that agency wouldn’t have access to talent from the Union, and that’d be part of our bargaining power.

No.

Right. As I said, I'm apprehensive but less skeptical about that park of it.

Unionizing would lead to everything moving in-house where we work for our clients and get union level pay and benefits.

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
