your company might contribute to foss but
- are you unionized?
- why not?
But I like being ionized. 😁
@viciousviscosity ba dum tsch nice thank you lmao
@garbados With luck the makerspace I'm working on building will have 4-5 staff (of which I'll be one) and be looking to support open source projects in-house.
How many people are needed to start a union? Being the owner means I can't be in it though, right?
> how many people does a union need
minimum 2, i figure, as that is the smallest number of workers required for them to work together.
> being the owner means i can't be in it
maybe not but you can support its organization and welcome its existence. there's no need for an adversarial relationship in collective bargaining.
@garbados Thanks! I've been working on my own for the last decade. I want to do this right, and I'm still not convinced the co-op model is best for a small engineering workshop. But top-down also has it's problems, even when small.
@garbados I wish I had tried to start a union at my last place. I was let go because I wasn't willing to put in the 60+ hours and weekend other people were.
