Here's something to make you say Whhhhaaaaatt? UNION. That's right, UNION.
Security Officers are the most needed employees in this town. The only thought when it comes to unions is Jimmy Hoffa, and the Mafia (what Mafia, there's no such thing). Even during the time of Hoffa, people were in better shape thanks to the union he helped formed. Just forget about the other little things that were involved during the creation and workings, you will realize that the so-called dead end jobs were now hard-working, respectful jobs. Security Officers were very much respected when the mafia were in control. Security said not to do something, people listened. Now, you get cursed out 'cause the general public are a bunch of assholes and dickheads. You can be as nice as possible and you people treat us like shit. Last year people realize that Security Officers positions are pretty much recession proof but nobody respects you enough to pay you a livable wage. No matter where you go in this town or the state of Nevada, somebody, somewhere, needs a Security Officer. The main bullshitters in Las Vegas are the casinos, due to the Gaming Commission, casinos must have Security to take care of the casino floor by taking the money earned from the day and tips from dealers to the vaults, this is where a Union could come in handy. Security have so many things to do and be concern with they always have to stop everything to collect money that they don't even get a part of. Wasn't Steve Wynn the man who said that "he did not like having Security in his casino". Why...you ask? Because Security Officers don't make money. Not to mention, if an Officer does something that even looks wrong, a dumb-ass can call the Human Resources and file a complaint on that Officer. You can get suspended for looking like you are reading a newspaper. No kidding, look like. Get it, "looks like". For those who are reading this maybe thinking to themselves that that can never be a reason to be suspended or fired. You come here and work as a Security Officer in this town, you will find out for yourself. Right now, I am telling everybody I come across and Nevada Job Connect, "don't be sending people to the Wynn/Encore hotel. They will not last under the current rule with the new Director of Security. They'll be coming back searching for another in a couple of months."
It's just amazing to me that the Dealers have an union, the cooks have a union, Janitors have a union, but the people who are most deserving of being unionized are the most Abused, Disrespected, Overlooked, Underpaid, and Blamed on: Security Officers. Some people born here haven't a problem with not being unionized; they are called snitches, rat bastards, retards, backstabbers, or simply put, punk-ass-scaredy-cat-bitches. They will tell on you, and yours, to HR like it is their duty to talk about you. It seems as if, they can't mind their goddamn business. Why is that? Do grown people have to tell on others like kindergarten kids running around trying to be the classroom pet. This is why a legitimate union that provides proper training, can weed out the weak ass bitches. "What this town needs is an enema", is the exact words from the Joker when talking about Las Vegas. To not be Unionized in Las Vegas, Nevada is a damn shame. Here's something nobody knows about, there is a National Security Officer Union, and in 2010, said organization was holding their convention here. That's right the SPFPA (International Union, Security, Police, Fire Professionals of America) 15th Constitutional Convention at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The keynote speaker will be the Lieutenant Colonel Rob Waldo Waldman from the Air Force. This is something all current Security officers should be apart of, the unionization of Security professionals in Las Vegas, Nevada no matter the cost. If the Security staff in Los Angeles, California got together to form a union against Kaiser Permanente hospitals last year to get higher wages and better Healthcare. Then, add a new minimum wage set for all new Officers. Finally, full quality healthcare for themselves and their families with the hospital they protect. All this with the company Securitas (they suck balls) and the SEIU (Service Employees International Union). Impressive.
Back in 2008, SEIU Security Officers in Los Angeles Local 2006 voted to approve its first ever union contract. Considered the best ever of its kind in the country, raising total compensation-wages and healthcare-by nearly 40 percent. It has everything an Officer have always been talking about secretly while employed; guaranteed annual pay increases, paid sick days, holidays and vacations, affordable healthcare and more importantly, increased training and a career ladder to professionalize the industry. Which of course, is very needed in Las Vegas. There are so many goons who think they deserve their positions as Director of Security, when in fact they don't know jack shit about how to run any Security Accounts. With that contract, SEIU and Robert Maguire, CEO of Maguire properties have each pledged $500,000 toward establishing a training center for private Security Officers in South Los Angeles. To get rid of the "You get what you paid for" mentality in Security, now Officers will be trained to the fullest before being set on into the public. This is the type of facility needed in Las Vegas, for the union to control and distribute Officers to appropriate casinos, construction sites, hospitals, and the like, after proper training. Instead, of the private businesses who hired a multitude of people and fit them in uniforms, don't train them at all, but will fire you as fast as a texted complaint reaches them. A person could lie their butt off and an Officer is fired. In Los Angeles, since 2008, nearly 70% of Security Officers are African-Americans, just that alone proves to the fact that a person can be fired for nothing. You can imagine the percentage of African-Americans in the Security profession in Las Vegas has got to be more, if not, equal to Los Angeles. Facts are facts, African-Americans are in the Security profession and are most to not have a livable wage given to them due to the profession of choice and their color. Las Vegas is known to have the most racist people living here.
Therefore, let me leave with that on your mind, because next time around we will talk about the hiring process in this town. About how not being able to get the good jobs due to nepotism and racism, after all, Las Vegas was consider the Mississippi of the West. If people can't get Black people the old way, then, do it administratively. By making sure they have all the low-wage, dead-end jobs Las Vegas can offer.
Stay in touch my peeps, because I got more.
