Oh, and yeah, my Grandfather was an outstanding carpenter courtesy of the Carpenter's Union, and a couple of my uncles.  Masculine Autonomy, boys.

"Masculine Autonomy"-good term.  A couple of members of my family were women in Teamsters.  Still applies.  Autonomy.  Not service economy subservient class.
