About 35 years ago, I packed my trailer and Wagoneer and moved to Las Vegas, Nev. Needing an income, I was advised at a lodge meeting, "Join the carpenters' union, they'll take anyone!" I immediately remembered my dad's dislike for unions, but I need a job! When I applied and took the entrance exam, I found that I had been well advised. A junior high industrial arts student could have passed it! I subsequently discovered that the exam to admit apprentices to full membership is much more difficult.
