Sorry US Govt Economists, this is not 'Full Employment"..
As I have been saying for months, there is a HUGE difference between the headlines that say we are a nation at 'full employment' and the reality on the street.
Latest -case in point: goodnews/badnews in NYC. Good news: openings for apprentice in Plumbers Union in Queens. Bad news - over 1200 people camping out in the street for a shot at it.
There is opportunity out there for those that stay vigilent and don't give up. But it sure aint easy these days!!.... http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2016/07/17/plumbers-union-apprenticeship-program/

I have paid almost 15 years into a union pension plan, first it took ten years to get vested now it is five years. Since I worked at different times in that fifteen years they were not consecutive they say I am not entitled to any of it. Is there something I can do.

Should I Pursue Or Move On
I worked at a company 23 years and was terminated because I was accused of sending another employee a threatening E-Mail. When I was accused of this incident I immediately contacted Yahoo because I didn't send the E-Mail and I wanted to know who sent the note. Yahoo stated at the time that they were unable to let such information unless I was law enforcement or government. I stated it was to keep my job that I had been on for 23 years . They told me their hands are tied they couldn't do anything. I told my Union about it and the sat on it for 6 months until the Company came down and said I'm not able to set foot on any property or talk with any employee. My sister worked there for 19 years and was terminated a year later. I find out in December of 2016 that my yahoo Email had been hacked by a company employee. It was the cousin of the alleged person who received the E-Mail. The Firing Manager was the nephew of the person who received the E-Mail. Should I hire an Attorney and present all evidence I have and go after the company?
I was termed from job of almost 16 years for making 2 corrected mistakes. The union begged for the company to "just give me something" and that's exactly what they did. Offered me a job in housekeeping making $20000 less because of tips. What ever happened to loyalty? What ever happened to unions fighting for your jobs? I feel like a housewife that husband asked for a divorce cause he wants to move in his younger girlfriend but tells the wife she can stay in the house and be their maid. A new job can't come fast enough!
Promised a raise and never got one
I’ve been working as a teacher in a public school for the past year. When I signed on, the lady interviewing me assured me that though the starting pay seemed low there would be a pay increase “very soon, any week now.” Well it’s been more than a couple weeks, it’s been about 52! She says there is nothing she can do because it is up to the union to negotiate the contract… Has this happened to anyone else? It seems unfair to promise a raise and then never get one.
