in thread Should Programmers Unionize?

How is my employer ripping me off if I being paid above award rates? If anything, I'm ripping off my employer by not giving 100%

Unions seem to be able to raise the award rates at times, but they won't do anything to raise the wages of those being paid above the award, which would mean that I would lose money if I were a member of a union.
