I like how our system of labour is built on the idea that if your job is to expensive to support the salaries of millionaires, its should not exist.
WE need another government bailout!! NOW!!!
Start petitioning now!
Twinkies are disgusting. Good riddance. Now we need to get rid of all the other junk food in America so we can solve the obesity epidemic.
No one is "making" you eat them, but I think giving them up would contribute to the greater good of not being the butt of all the other countries' jokes.
Would you like it if your boss took nearly 10% of your pay away from you and slashed your benefits? **** no. That's why people went on strike. You probably couldn't live on a pay-cut, and the owners bullied the union by shutting their doors instead of negotiating.
You act like unions are Satan. Unions protect workers, and if you've been privelaged enough to never been treated like a ******* number, you wouldn't understand. As someone who worked in retail and was treated like complete and utter **** from bosses, and someone who worked long hours with **** pay, **** insurance, and zero respect, being protected actually means something. I'm not saying people who own businesses are greedy, but viewing unions as something other than protecting workers (like their pay and benefits) as a bad thing is 50 years behind workers rights. Having the right to negotiate is something that should be respected.
Yes, I would rather belong to a union that negotiated for reasonable pay and benefits. In my lifetime, I have seen my boyfriend have to bring in a union lawyer twice to protect himself from getting fired by asking "Mr. Carter, will you stop screaming the f-word at me and remove yourself from the classroom?" But I"m sure you think he's being a "lazy teacher". Or how about the time he drew a Physics example on the whiteboard with black marker and made black stick figures, and a group of kids claimed he was being racist? He pays $1,000 a year for insurance against the ridiculous teacher-hating system. People like you puke untrue facts about how teachers are lazy, greedy, and over-paid. ($40,000 a year is overpaid). I think teachers need therapists because they're so abused by parents. Your "lazy idiot" comment is so out of par with reality. If someone works hard in a company they should be making more than entry-level wages. They shouldn't be scared if they get sick on a Friday, they've been replaced by another warm body on Monday. Or if their boss doesn't like their face they'll be fired. This is my personal experience with unions.

Well there's always Crispy Creme Doughnuts
Unions would rather kill the company, and all become unemployed, than to accept the amount of pay the company can afford. My son once worked for GE jet engine factory. The union forced them to close and move production to Asia rather than to accept the company's offer to drop its thousands of "grievances" and keep their jobs. Unions are bad for everyone.
Change is needed to stop major Corps from enslaving us.
