Any thoughts about organizing a union?

Devry scheduling cannibalism

I think the ship is really going down as it "seems" that the scheduling has increasingly less and less sections to offer online and there are many many payroll rats vying for those sections. So now the scheduling looks like a ship on which the rats... —  read more
