One of the most misunderstood people in the working world, from a white-collar workers point of view. Many are mechanics, electricians, and other technicians making $30-$40 an hour for jobs that most non-union employees would otherwise pay only half that much. Many union employers are those that reel you in and just let you go during the probationary period, even if you prove yourself hardworking and competent, but will keep the lazy and incompetent, just because they are friends with management or well-liked. If you have a blue-collar trade or skill, want to make a good wage, just want to put in a good 8 hours work a day, and no intention of trying to climb the corporate ladder, a union job is well-suited for you. And yes, many union workers are lazy shitbags that take numerous breaks and complain about everything, but there are many others that are honest, hardworking, and dedicated to their jobs. The union reps, with the backup of politicians and the mafia, are the ones who keep things going for the common working man. Many Republicans and conservatives dislike unions because they believe good money should be earned though merit and hard work and that anybody that does not have a college degree and works a skilled trade deserves just enough money to keep themselves fed and a roof over their head

The real world of employment. White-collar workers in the private sector are usually either self-serving pricks that exploit subordinates or office drones that just try to go about their business and suck it up. And the blue-collar workers are those that break their backs working for slave wages just so they can pay their bills and put food on the table. Politics are rampant with most private sector companies that only take care of those that are friends of the boss or management.

A common trait for many people, especially males, that usually grew up either in the inner city or hardworking rural environment. Average intelligence, common sense, lack of interest in reading, ability to fix most anything without needing an instruction manual, skill at handling difficult people, and a refreshing lack of personal warmth are typical traits. People who lack street smarts usually grew up or live in the suburbs, work a white collar job, regular churchgoers, stay in their personal protective cocoon, shelter their kids, and hire people to fix their things.

A town of about 8,000 in the southwest part of the state that consists of more taxis than privately owned vehicles. The atmosphere of the town is one of despair, hopelessness, and general filth. The residents are mostly Yupik natives, Albanians, Koreans, and displaced, hapless, middle-class white people that work mainly as pilots of small aircraft, in health care, and the school system. Few, if any of the public buildings, hotels, shopping areas, and restaurants are rarely, if ever cleaned. A can of soup at the AC Store runs for about $5 and a meal of hamburger and french fries runs for about $15. No recreation center or indoor pool for the kids to ease their boredom.
