If paying these dudes high salaries were a colossally bad decision, these companies would pay for it in the competitive environment.
it isn't just the pay...it is the attitude and the limitations the union puts on people doing what they think is additional things other than their job.
In a company I used to work for an idiot union worker came into to paint my walls in my office when he got to the wall where there is an electrical outlet and light switch, he said I am done here for now. I said what? We need to get an electrician up here. Why? To take the cover plates of the outlet and switch.
I said don't go away. I pulled a screw driver out of my desk drawer and took them off and told him to get back to work. Union filed a grieveance and expected the company to pay OT to one of the electricians. Let it go to arbitration and caused the union to spend money they didn't have only to get stiffed by the arbitrator as they ruled in favor of the company.
We later eliminated all maintenance and electrical union employees and contracted everything out to a 3rd party. 35% savings
