I agree. But I just find it funny that someone is saying how well they can cope... and yet they're collecting strike pay (or whatever you want to call it) from the union.

It is fairly unique. If I couldn't do it with this company, I'd have to move. Either to Alaska, or to Vancouver/Toronto. There's maybe 6-7 employer's in Canada with whom I could get employment doing the same thing I do now.
