Easy come, easy go

Andy had to turn down a job offer today because the employer was offering below prevailing wage for electrical, and the Local 6 rep reminded her that she really shouldn't work for less than she's worth. It's a valid point, it's just unfortunate that there are no actual, you know, jobs being offered through the union hall lately (where lately is the last 6 months).

The union is great, and i support her for making the decision she made, we're just in kind of an unfortunate bind of having to pay for day care just in case she gets called for a job... because if we don't, we won't have daycare when the job call comes in.

Really what I'm sad about, and i think i speak for Andy too, is that we won't have access to the cool plastic mold-form making tools and woodshop.
