    Unions And Advancement - Was I Wrong?

    I've always held the belief that unions stunt a person's goals and ambitions. From this blog I've documented how unions discourage advancement, how they discourage giving extra effort, and generally ordering workers to do only what they are suppose to do in their area of responsibility within a fixed time - and no more.

    Well then I heard this story that proves unions do promote advancement - well, sort of. Enter Jon Sandell - master grocery bagger.

    Jon is a true union man and for over 34 years Jon has bagged groceries. I don't know his exact age but he is at least 50, so do the math and it looks like this might have been his one and only job. I have to wonder when Jon was a little boy - did he dream of bagging groceries for the rest of his life?

    Ah, but we do have a Hallmark moment for He beat out the top baggers from all 50 states and Canada by sacking 31 items in 33 seconds. has won the champion grocery bagger contest held in Las Vegas yesterday. Jon beat out the top baggers from all 50 states and Canada by sacking 31 items in 33 seconds.

    Now that just goes to show you that unions really do promote advancement. Stay in your job and do nothing else for over 34 years and you too can compete in an exciting competition with others just like you!

    I'm excited now. Think of all of those off shore jobs that will be coming back to our country when word of this spreads! YAHOO!
