Reply to: Who Is Behind the National Right to Work Committee and its Anti-Union Crusade?
Guess what, the members are the Union. You don't like what your Union is doing, get involved. The LMRDA gives you many rights which are enforced by the DOL, use them. Stop blaming the "Union" get off your ass and get involved, that's what I did and it worked. Flo, based on all the grammatical errors in your post, you need a Union protecting your job. No Union voluntarily gives away jurisdiction, sometimes it is a battle they cannot win. Instead blaming the IBEW get the facts! Also, what is this nonsense about going after pensions? Republicans have been attacking ERISA and taking your pension since Bush signed the PPA into law. Get your facts straight. Too many ignorant people here who don't know what side their bread is buttered on. Who benefits from destroying Unions? Corporations, billionaires, and large employers. Who gets hurt by when Unions are destroyed? Employees, the the working class, most of America.
Reply to: America's Inefficient and Ineffective Approach to Border Security
This article is b.s most immigrants receive welfare and payments from the social security fund for which they do not earn. Its quite clear those in power want the borders open to destroy life for natural born americans. The media, the left, the politicians, academia and corporate america clearly are working to destroy the system. Americans are too lazy to tax revolt and stop voting trash into congress. They are too lazy to boycott the products/services of buttinsky corporations who ruin the lives of every day u.s citizen. Time to start dividing america up into separate nations. I'm tired of this disgusting government and the people who work for it and those who run it. Blow the whole thing up with the media along with it.
Reply to: Trump's Supreme Court Strikes Blow to Government Workers, Good Paying Jobs
Justice Kagan wrote a scathing dissension in which she highlighted the reversal of Abood. Only 50 years had passed, a very short time to toss aside Stare Decisis. Although my personal preferences lie with the decision it is a troubling one nevertheless. Unions still represent workers even in Right-to-Work states. Unions will continue to represent workers after Janus. Unions will just need to service the employee as I thought was true when I belonged to the teamsters many a year ago. My high school mates belonging to various trade unions echoed my sentiment. Union membership was worth it. Our dues did more than just negotiate wages.
Reply to: Koch-Tied Firm Conducts Mass Layoffs After Trump “Job Creating” Tax Cut Bill
So let me understand, a corporation bought another corporation and then cut their cost by eliminating a 30 year old division that supplied customer service. Instead they subcontracted that task to an existing supplier to bring efficiency to the larger group. . . . Yep, that's what happens and the reason free markets exist. Always sad to see people lose their jobs, though. P.S. this has nothing to do with a tax break. Portraying as such is fake news.
Reply to: Secret, Big Funding of "Small Business" Group Exposed at New Website -- NFIBexposed.org
Trump spoke to an audience of NFIB cretins, who aplauded his diatribe of lies. They wildly applauded his defending himself for throwing kids in dog kennels at the border. You people are disgusting. And you will be the first to suffer from this idiotic trade war.
