My first full time was at 18 with the federal government. I was working cases using microfilm (this was in 1970) and one day, while on a bit of a roll, two coworkers came to my desk and told me, 'Rick, it's break time. You have to stop working or you will raise the production level for all of us.' I started to laugh knowing they were kidding, but when I saw their faces realized that they were being quite serious. I couldn't imagine being told not to work as hard. An example of unions at their very worst.
