there are lote of things we hate about the job, and lots of tossers who ask us to do pointless and mundane tasks. but would they be the same if you threatened to go to the union!! ??? some people are bound to disagree but the army does take away a loty of your rights, essentially once you have signed the paper they own you! taking away peoples rights and messing folk around for no good reason often puts a bitter taste in some folks mouths, so if there was a union who would join it?
