I hear that your job stile and/or pay should increase at least every year to two ears, but I am currently working a job where the only time pay increases come is when the contract is renewed once every five years (The company I work for has a contract for services with another company for a particular location). But, in the private sector, job announcement never mention is it is forbidden to talk about salary in interviews. I feel it is a race to the bottom when it comes to salaries and benefits (especially health care). Everything is set up as a trap, especially since unions have been decimated.

Lost my job 3 months ago. Accused of failing to report an incident. Union keeps giving me the run around. Now my unemployment is being threatened. Next step is to contact an attorney.

There is a lot of talk regarding the increasing tech wave in Artificial Intelligence and automation and how it will impact the future of work. I have some strong views on the matter but wonder what you think? Here's an article to start the convo.... https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/american-workers-jobs-inequality-union-automation_us_5ae043f9e4b061c0bfa32e0c #FOW #futureofwork #robots #anxiety #unions

If AFSCME goes the way of the dodo, it's that dodo's own fault. I was an AFSCME employee for years at one of the Big 10 schools and the union was less than useless. Management had a great deal of out and out hostility to union employees, and a caste system governed university policy, with AFSCME workers at the very bottom of the bottom. AFSCME negotiators weren't even able to protect worker benefits that came at little or no cost to the university--including the Regents Scholarship (unlimited free classes for employees, of which I took advantage--now a mere memory). The University signals contempt for its clerical and administrative workers at every turn. It's not hyperbolic to say that those workers are treated like the scum of the earth. AFSCME never fought for employee dignity, promotion rights, regent scholarships, overtime pay, etcetera. etcetera. Therefore, the union should expect NO solidarity. It has historically been unable to adequately represent the school's clerical population.
