No you shouldn't and I left my last employer because a union was moving in.
I can represent myself just fine, and it is free!!

I would've gladly paid union dues instead of going several years without even a performance drive let alone a raise.
The raises o should have, and would have received more than cancel out any union dues. Of course, idiots don't thin like that, so someone will just tell them not joining saves money so they won't, leaving themselves at the mercy of the boss's whims.

I have no problem with groups of private workers getting together for negotiation purposes, just don't force others to join your group if they want to work.

These anti-union republicans don't have any sense. Back in 2004-05 I had the highest paying job that I had. It called for health benefits and periodic raises per union contract. I never had an issue with my employer and if I ever did I had two union stewards that I can talk to. Now move out of state to a so called right to work state and it's a different ballgame. Employers basically tell employees that we can do whatever they hell we like, don't have to pay you anything other than what is required by law and if you don't like how we do business there is the door out.
