    Easy Job. Depending on what you are doing.
    The union will fight for you if upper management tries to fire you for some ridiculous reason.

    Union Dues.
    Some job requirements are over-stated and taken WAY too seriously Such as:
    Making sure WIC transactions are correct. any more than 3 mistakes that cause your register to be off and you can/will be "let go". A.K.A fired.

    Clocking your sweeps is not the most important thing in the store.
