On strike isn’t that wonderful of another union
No more Twinkies? How sad! They’re pulling all from the shelves here in Indy!
Blame it on michelle, this was her doings you can bet sob sob sob
They will set up business in china the. hell with the unions and another union bites dush
MORE OF THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. THE UNIONS THINK THEY HAVE A MANDATE BECAUSE OBAMA IS IN BED WITH THEM.
THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY IS GOING TO GET A LESSON AND THAT MEANS EVERY BODY.
UNION GREED, NOW HOW DO YOU ALL FEEL WITHOUT A JOB?
YOU ALL ARE STUPID TO STRIKE.
My question is how they keep telling us the economy is healing and getting better when we are still hearing of layoffs. My daughter lost her job to layoff from loss of work just a few weeks ago. I see higher prices. I don’t see anything that would make me think the economy is the least bit better. In fact, it is just a continuation of slow continual crash ever since obama was elected in 2008, and now we have four more years of his policies. As for Labor Unions, that was our only way to keep rich company owners from just pocketing all the profit and not increasing workers wages when profits were made. There haven’t been any profits here in the USA in years because foreign labor and no EPA make it cheaper for the rich to simply close up shop here in the USA and move to a country that force the peasants to work for peanuts, such as Communist China. America hated communism, that is before they found a way to exploit the cheap labor under communism. Why do you think they want socialist communism here in the USA? Workers have no bargaining power and the rich just pocket all the profits. I lived in Brooklyn until 1981 when Reagan broke the backs of the Unions when he smashed the Air Traffic Controller’s Union, and people, that was the beginning of the slide into the people having no power to bargain with the rich and for them to plan moving the manufacturing centers to socialistic and communist nations. I’m 70 now, but officially I am still on Strike from a tugboat company in NYC harbor ever since 1981 when we tried to bargain with the rich owners of the tug companies and they were allowed to bring in foreign workers. That was when all this began for NAFTA and GATT and all the jobs going to countries with low pay for skills that should pay well, instead the rich just get to pocket everything and keep it in foreign bank accounts, we call them Republicans. The unions thought they might have a chance since long ago the Democrats were the working man’s party, but now there is no one who gives a darn about working people. Once the Unions were broken, we had no power to deal with the rich company owners. Everyone wants to see this as a problem with the unions wanting a fair share of the profits, but the owners and stockholders are the ones keeping all the money and leaving us all without jobs, and we’re deserted by both political parties. You want to know when all of this you are seeing come down on us began, go back to 1981 and read up to bring yourself up to speed. This is why foreign workers can come into America today and take the jobs for less pay here, we called them scabs back when workers had some little bit of power to control our destiny.
Moderation on that? you gotta be kiddin me.
