Are you throwing down the guantlet to me :) Unionization is probibly not
appropriate for IT. Licensure is probibly the way. And the first step
is to create a more powerful and enabled professional organization, IMO.
The FSCC was designed to start this process. It will take years. I'll
be retired before this becomes a reality. But I believe it will happen.
I think there is no relisitic choice for public security reasons alone.
