    Are they afraid to organize?  Many folks are because cheap pay is better than no pay.

      uninformed and many look at the job as a starting point not a career.  though most of my assistants have been there for years.  one is the daughter of a teabagging gun nut who thinks unions are the work of satan i am sure.  she is a great help though and great at her job.  incredibly compassionate with animals and so annoyed when owners do not have the ability to pay for health care for their pets (i have tried to help her connect the dots to healthcare for people but there is a sticking point in her brain).  

      We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers and discoverers - thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses. Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams. - Peter S. Beagle
