I think the only people that would find it ridiculous would be upper management. (Naturally) IBM has been trying to unionize for a very long time with no luck. But they continue to try. I hope it happens and that I'll be alive to see it.

The world has always needed an I.T. Union, but ask anyone in the field and they will say it's a ridiculous idea. Sigh...so smart in some ways...so dumb in others.

 

Contract workers in the I.T. get no benefits, no paid time off, , are universally treated like garbage, and less pay every year. I ought to know. I am a contract worker in the I.T. field.

Holy crap man, 1800 yrs ago? I can only imagine how primitive it was way back then. J/K, i know you meant 2000's, just couldn't resist.

Maybe in 1933 IBM was a great place to work. I worked for them in the early 200's. It's no place I'd want to go back to by choice. Maybe if the tech field could finally unionize I'd feel different.
