    You're right, there certainly wasn't any sweat shot type labor at the turn of the century.

    Huh, I just went and checked. My pillows are made in the USA. I think that's actually pretty cool.

    Are you getting paid 78 cents for every dollar your male co-workers make?

    No...I'm union...we all make the SAME rate.

    Sometimes I get irked with some aspects of my union, but all in all..it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

    I have a skill....that the union sent me to school for to learn...and they paid me while I learned it!

    The union also sent me and paid for me to get my cdl so I can make MORE money at my job.

    Great benefits, too...hell, I got invisalign and designer glasses thanks to my union!

    Don't get me wrong, though...you gotta actually work...if you're a slacker you'll spend your whole career "on the bench"

    Sorry for the rant
