Ephera ,

I also recently realized that about visibility. My team lead will tell me, I need to be visible in the team and our business unit, at the very least to help my team lead get feedback that I'm doing a good job.

Well, right now we're doing an open-source project in collaboration with other companies.
Through some circumstances, I now appear in that context as lead architect and there's a rather prominent statistic which says that ca. 50% of code contributions are from me.
That statistic is probably horseshit, as I barely have time to write code now, but either way, I'm suddenly very visible and look like I'm absolutely crushing it.

But the thing is, I'm visible towards other companies. Those might be very interested in hiring me. Which is suddenly the opposite of what my team lead wants...

unions do more than just strong-arm negotiation.
"While union representation is not a magic bullet to workplace safety problems, there is little doubt that it makes a positive difference. A recent report surveying the construction industry published by the Illinois Economic Policy Institute based on publicly reported OSHA data found that union worksites are 19% less likely to have an OSHA violation and had 34% fewer violations per OSHA inspection than non-union worksites. Overall, while unions represent 14% of the construction industry employees, their employers account for only 5% of the industry’s OSHA violations."

My current job makes us watch videos of a humble guy with a pleasant southern accent talking about how unions are bad because employees should have the power to represent themselves.

After 4 years I'm still making the starting pay.
