At the all time high,union membership was only 25% of the workers. But they made 30% more in wages alone. The rise and fall of the unions pretty much followed the rise and fall of the middle class. Parasites destroying their hosts.
The guy is making 29k again, so good for him.
The greedy unions.....there's got to be some middle ground between $1 an hour to $75k with free health insurance for life and 100% pension at age 50. The retired union workers here own multiple homes, buy brand new cars every couple of years, and work part time jobs just to fill up their days. That's too much for unskilled laborers.

A restrictive covenant is a private agreement between land owners where one party will restrict the use of its land in some way for the benefit of another's land. Restrictive covenants, once agreed between the parties, are placed in the title deeds to the property.
"Your mother's dead, before long I'll be dead, and you...and your brother and your sister and all of her children, all of us dead, all of us..rotting in the ground. It's the family name that lives on. It's all that lives on. Not your personal glory, not your honor, but family." - Tywin Lannister
