Should we strike like AT&T until we get a union? Not sure why we don’t have one considering we work 1.3 times the normal person.

I don’t want to pay a union to make it easier for lazy people to get away with it. This is a competitive industry, most of us are here because we strive on that competition.

Didn't we just do a post on unions? Thought the overwhelming consensus was that most of us are against unionizing.

Because it would never matter. Public accounting will always haven unlimited options for recruiting due to their investments in public universities

No. Sure at the staff 1 level this is true. Not at the qualified senior level, let alone manager and above.

I just want to add one thing, all trade unions have open enrollment for apprenticeship periodically. What is stopping any of you from applying to a union? Also, if you are not sure when they hold applications, you can figure it out with a quick google search and you phone call to your local. I am 100% for unions, but I don’t think they will solve the issues of this job given the competitive nature it takes to be successful.

It would be interested to see what part of the country everyone is from as they respond. I’m from the South and unions are not strong here. We have right to work laws which prohibit closed shops.

I’m from the south and one of my parents works for the international union and helps negotiate contracts all over the south. You’d be amazed at how beneficial unions are in contract negotiations with big business and low wage workers. With that being said, generally lower wage workers. Not sure that’s really gonna help much in PA. So many other options to work elsewhere and at least most firms have initiatives to improve employee value, even if they aren’t super successful all the time.. we’re lucky we at least have that.

For the EO deferring payroll taxes until the end of the year, does anyone think these payroll taxes will be given to workers? I don’t see any employer stopping the collection of worker payroll taxes. Larry Kudlow says people are going to receive extra money in their checks (on “State of the Union” Aug 9th). Steve Mnuchin when asked by Chris Wallace whether employers would pass the deferrals on to employees failed to answer the question (“Fox News Sunday Aug 9th).

Do you agree that Manhattan streets don’t seem as safe anymore in *certain areas? Things seem relatively okay around restaurants or residential areas (e.g., 2nd Ave. Murray Hill area) but in some areas the streets are still empty and there’s a different crowd and more homeless that’s loitering around. Noticed this even walking through Union Square area and it’s more randos than usual and some of them were groups of guys just hanging in smaller groups that stare when you walk by, it was weird.
