    I'm employed but as a college student who hasn't always been employed I just want to say thank you for putting this out here.

    That's an awful lot of union dues for a three month job.

    Especially for only $12 an hour, my lowest retirement pays more than that and I have two, plus I work a almost full time job in addition.

    And, having worked at Freightliner some years ago I'm not sure I'd work there again, pay was good at over $7,000 a month, working climate sucked though.

    Meh, it's at the plant and the union wants their share just like everyone else I guess. But a job is a job and it's better then minimum wage. For a college kid who wants to work over the summer it's not a bad deal. Espeically with the job market the way it is right now.
