Are there any Union Carpenters here (In jersey would be nice)? I am thinking of joining a union because of the benefits and pension. I,also,here the pay for journeymen is great. Anyone have any info for me? My wife and i just had a baby boy 3 weeks ago and i need a solid job with good pay and benefits for my son. My wife is a nurse and they are charging us $400 per month to add the little guy on her medical plan. I believe we would be paying that if we went out on our own for medical. She works in a nursing home and gets weekends and holidays off,which is why she doesn't want to work in a hospital. I want her to be confortable so i will leave my job as a subcontractor to go into a union. I know i will lose my freedom to work when and were i want.... even what time i start work but with the benefits and pension i don't mind. My wife's boss is leaving in 2yrs or less and my wife is up for the possition,so that should be a nice salary increase :) thanks for the help
