Not Again...

Came home to the unbelievable news that Southern California grocery stores are once again on the verge of striking.

The last strike, in 2003-2004, lasted a mind-boggling 141 days.

To make matters worse, our daughter's summer job is at the local Vons. It frankly never occurred to us when she applied that there could be another strike so close in time to the last one! She thought it would be great to work in the neighborhood and not have gas expenses, and so far she's been enjoying it.

Sigh...

Has she been there long enough to be in the union yet? I used to be in that union, but I don't remember how it works. Are you "in" right away, or does it take 90 days? If not, she could always work as a scab.
