JOINING HANDS

I wonder if the “gods” have a union a collective bargaining unit of sorts to protect the language of their contracts, mediate jurisdictional disputes, proclaim that “all gods shall be compensated in direct proportion to their minions devotion. The “god” union would also have to discourage any of the “gods” from breaking off to start another union offering better or more lenient conditions. Perhaps less severe response to crossing jurisdictional lines allowing the minions to decide what union to join which “god” to serve. But wait, wouldn’t that open the door for “open shop gods” who recognized no unions, compensated “their” minions unequally, offered little training, or job security? But wait, shouldn’t all minions have the right to work for any “god” they choose? Who are these entrepreneurial “un-gods” who choose to go it alone, demand a slice of the celestial pie and become a “god” unto themselves. John G. Lawless ©11/24/2021
