I'm curious what part of that statement made you respond this way? If Florida is right to work, it makes perfect sense that union jobs would be scarce.... It's hand in hand. Was there some other context we are not seeing?

Everything you mentioned abounds in Port Charlotte.

Considering he tacked his comment about right to work with a comment about unions, why would you think he doesn't know what it means?

Sure, a lot of people confuse it with "at-will" - but he clearly used it in conjunction with a comment about a lack of unions. To be honest, you challenging him on whether he knows what it means or not, within that context, might suggest you don't know what it means far more than him.

Anyways, carry on.

Well, here is a link to the "right to work" concept as defined by law. As I understand it, in a right to work state union membership is not required for employment, ie employees may join a union if they desire but are not required to do so to hold a job. I am sure there is more to the law than that, and it's been misrepresented big time by unions and their avid supporters, so it's no wonder if the concept is misunderstood by many.

But IMO the comment about unions or lack thereof in a "right to work"state is pretty much spot on. Unions depend on dues from their members, and are assured of membership if employees are required to join the union as a condition of employment. If membership is optional, many employees may choose not to join the union, essentially cutting off its funding and weakening it greatly.

There. Now we all know.

I moved here two years ago going on three for a job opportunity. I was raised in Hawaii, lived 15 years in Arkansas and two years in TN. I started in Jacksonville I lasted at that location for 5 weeks! The crime rate is incredibly high. Schools run down and "ghetto" I was on the north side in a nicer area but couldn't even walk down the street with my dog without hearing a cat call or someone coming up to me. Walmart. Psh forget it. So I moved to the next town over. Yulee. Now it is a nicer area. Not trashy in the Fernandina area and some areas in yulee. But where you don't have your ghetto you have your trashy, backwoods redneck locations. The road work there is high because that county is expanding. People are always in a hurry and have alot of road rage. I've never been in a wreck or even a fender bender. I was driving home from work and someone t boned me, totalled my truck and then...left the scene. Animals here are considered property. A dog actually had a DRYER appliance for a dog house. As long as it has 3 sides , top, and bottom it's considered shelter. The people here are very unfriendly, extreme lack of manners and somewhat confrontational. I got screamed at by a woman because I was waiting for a parking spot at Walmart and I didn't move out of her way fast enough never mind I was only waiting for a total of a min and the driver pulling out was a disabled woman with a cane. The beaches are polluted. Their was a shark attack a mile down the beach from where I was with a GA boy that had his calf shredded. A few drownings occurred due to currents and feel sorry for the family that never found the cousin that drowned this summer.
Alot of rentals that are NOT pet friendly. And the prices for rent are ridiculously high for the little box you get.

Bugs. My god. There is bug season and non bug season. The knats and mosquitoes are in colonies. Keep your mouth closed. Especially if your riding a bike, I about choked to death.

Employment. Scarce to none. Wages are low. And unemployment is through the roof in this state.
Commuting to work is hard due to all the traffic and crazy drivers. If it starts to drizzle traffic will be congested. For some reason people ride the brakes.

Hot. Humid. But that's the south for ya.

Also which was interesting for me is seeing teeny bops from 10 and up wearing trashy , skanky clothes. I'm not sure why the parenting system allows that. Here. Girls middle school and up where tops that allow way more then appropriate and crotch eating shorts. Definitely a lack of parenting here. I understand it's hot but c'Mon.

If anyone that is contemplating moving down here. Ask away. I'll tell you what it is. Not sugarcoated.

I apologize to anyone I may have offended. I certainly don't want to do that. I just wish I would have had a better insight before excepting that Job. I would not have taken it.
I think you should have checked out the area better

There. Now we all know.
Thx. I have always preferred to have a choice to join or not, rather than be forced to join. Call me strange, but I like having decisions about MY life in my hands....not others. That is why I enjoyed working in NC and FL over other states I have lived in.
