    Remember back when the Bailout of the Automaker was in the news and we had alot of video of these Union workers drinking and smoke dope on video. Though they got fired and were gone for good. Well guess what they are all back on the job building cars again with back pay! Yep the good old unions forced the auto makers to take them back! Great example of why the unions are bad for buisness. You can't even fire drunks and druggies. So much for safety on the job! :steamed: Thank God Michigan is going right to work!:supergrin:

    IIRC, they were Chrysler employees.

    That explains SO much.

    Kind'a makes you realize why the unions in Michigan are so stridently opposed to "right to work" laws -- I mean, who wants laws that could potentially impact a person's right to drink and get stoned at lunchtime? :dunno:

    Uh...uh...getting drunk and stoned at lunchtime makes employees more creative. Most do their best work when they got a buzz on, or at least they believe so, so it's not really 'fair' to fire them. :rofl:

    Finally, it all makes sense now. :rofl:

    I wonder if they vacuum the Funyuns crumbs out before it ships or if it's left up to the dealer.

    Yeah all those unions are terrible, isn't it great that workers in "right to work states" make $5500 less per year than their union state counterparts. Hmm, more for the executives and less for the workers. Hooray for the workers in the right to work states!

    It's obvious that right-to-work states employees are underpaid, and that union employees aren't overpaid, isn't it? :upeyes:

    No not overpaid, union workers wages have kept up with inflation. Non union workers have been underpaid because their management knows they can treat them as they wish, no watch dog. It's plain and simple economics, non union workers get the shaft while their management or business owners get the lions share.

    Well...you have to admit that Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Che Guevara agree with him.

    Oh...the fat-cat union bosses do, too. In right-to-work states it's hard to shake all the workers down for cash to live the sweet life and have extra to give to friendly politicians. How else can the Democratic Party survive without extortion...?

    I thought I had heard those words before... [​IMG]

    My b-in-law was a union steward for an industry that had a massive economic shake-out a couple of decades ago. Most of his grief came from the union members, whose lifestyles of beach houses and extra sports cars didn't mesh with economic reality. It left him with a bad taste for unions.

    Some day try no faux news, your head will start to clear and you will see the real world. Union dues are very cheap for what results are earned. Keep feeding yourself with that BS, you will never see the real facts.

    I want to buy products made in right-to-work states. They cost less. If I were running a business that used parts or materials from off-site, I would definitely buy from right-to-work States so I could offer my product at a better price.

    Does not surprise me in the least. Now if only we can figure out how to get the rest of the country to wise up to just how "useful" unions really are. Seems like unions are are really good at making it hard to fire useless workers, and lining the pockets of union bigwigs.

    Well I was going to start a new thread on the latest union move but I'll stick here instead! Now reported the Teacher unions in Detroit Metro are going to shut down all inner city schools so they can go protest at the capital! I sure hope it's all unpaid protest time cause they are sure F'cking over all the students and parents !! Well actually it might be a good thing as most of the teacher don't actually teach anything anyway! As we see by the average Grad rate of below 50%!!! Now there's a bunch of useless union workers!:steamed:

    I love to buy American, but only if I can be assured it was built by non-union workers in a right to work state.

    And I'll never buy another GM or Chrysler product.:nutcheck:

    And those poor non-union workers don't have anyone to stand up and force the employers to continue to employ them after they have been caught drinking and smoking dope on their breaks.

    You would think that the owners of companies in this Country actually think they own the company, the nerve of them.

    I tell you, it is Hell out there without a union to protect your right to get loaded at work:upeyes:

    I'm not entirely sure the teachers are entirely to blame. I think it's also partly the kids who are to blame too. Too often do I see kids busy dicking around on an electronic device of sort or another, instead of actually paying attention. No matter how awesome the teacher is, if the kid doesn't want to be taught, he's not going to be taught. While I do agree that teachers definitely seem to be lacking, they're not solely to blame.

    But I do think that if we paid teachers what we thought our kids education was worth, more people might actually want to be teachers.
