Dream on! While *some* people may have utopian jobs where the people with the skills get ahead, the more realistic scenario is one of politics and favortism.
If you are in a job with a union, and there are people not working, but still getting paid, complain to the union! As a member, you *are* the union.
The bottom line is that in many situations, you need the power of a union. You absolutely no power when you are on your own.
