  • For those that have been demanding a union, etc., it is time for you to step up to the plate.

    I couldn’t afford it, but now is the time to put up or shut up.

    For those that have been demanding a union, etc., it is time for you to step up to the plate.

    It will take a few days to get this running, but as of a few minutes ago, it has been started.

    ConcernedSTEMWorkers.com

    Dues will be $20.00 per month.
    It will NOT be a typical union as it will be member owned, and directed as every member will receive one, and only one vote.

    For those unemployed, the dues will be 1.00 per month and the union of concerned stem workers will work to get you back to work.

    United we stand
    Divided we fall

    It really is that simple, and yes, green card holders, and other pawns in this global chess game that is being played against all workers in our world, you are welcome to join as it will take all of us working together to defeat what is happening in the STEM industry on a global basis.

    IF you are not willing to join, quit your damn whining

    Initial funds will be used to legalize us.

    as the funds grow, we are going to fight propaganda with truth by exposing what is happening.

    IF you are not willing to join, you have spoken loud and clear
