    Make the Codex Great Again!
    I've been at my current job for roughly four years. When I started I was making -- for the simplicity of this example -- $50,000. I joined the union about six months in, as they were in the process of negotiating a company-wide pay raise for employees. The negotiations succeeded, and I saw my pay go from $50K to $62K in a year due to a merit raise (which would've just been to $54K) and the union's negotiations.

    Fast forward to year 2.5 of my job. The union voted in new leadership and it negotiated a new contract with management. One of the key topics was vacation time. For a while, many people hired after a certain date received only two weeks of PTO, including sick days. The guild negotiated that every hire would be given three weeks of PTO, with a certain number of days allotted for sick days. That way, if we get sick, we don't need to worry about it eating into our PTO.

    Go to year 3.5 of my job, the office equipment on our floor is ridiculously antiquated: old desks, computers and chairs. I knew from week one that I needed my own chair because the one they provided was shit. I bought a new chair and just expensed the company. I also went to my doctor and got a note for a standing desk. No one said a word. Meanwhile, the union negotiated management to upgrade the desks and chairs for everyone else. Within three months, they put in new equipment and provided, with no questions asked, standing desks upon request.

    There have been other improvements the union has accomplished, including forcing the company to contribute more to our 401K and better parental leave (for U.S. standards because I know our country has shit parental leave compared to the rest of the world). I am pleased with what they did in a short time.

    Other people's mileage may vary.

    And you wouldn't have got this if you were not part of the union? Only people that give tax get the benefits or everyone?

    The benefits applied to everyone, regardless of union membership. However, without the union, there wouldn't be any benefits to distribute because no one was doing anything, which management wants.

    The "tax," or dues, as they are correctly termed, shouldn't be a deterrent for people who want to unionized or join a union. This is money that can be used to hire competent labor attorneys, among other expenses required to run a successful union.

    I get the appeal, but I still don't believe the tech will stick.
    F-Zero GX in VR would be pretty cool though. Damn it, why doesn't Nintendo do a sequel? :negative:

    It'll take off as soon as someone releases a 10/10 VR porn experience.

    From Japan to vr to Sims?
    I guess that is the benefit of being paid to do whatever you want.

    I feel like I'm on the verge of one more video being about some weeb shit or like how video game jewel case makers are being undervalued before I unsubscribe. I miss the MGS stuff, but I guess the signs were there the whole time.

    When he isn't lazy as fuck, he can make entertaining videos, right now he is on Spoony territory of zero relevant content. I almost forgot this dude existed.

    That's a bit harsh. Spoony did nothing in his last years. George at least makes videos, even if the content is pretty meh.

    He parked it 2/3rds of the way in to catch you off-guard, so he's being pretty aggressive and douchey about it, too. Instant dislike.

    Too many VR videos and videos about some obscure video game related thing he saw while in Japan. Just find it really hard to care about these topics.
