    Given the current radical right wing political climate, I would guess there is a fifty/fifty chance would be dead by this time.

    Why would cheer on people making it harder for others to get jobs, for products and services to be artificially inflated?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Apple store employee seeks to plant union seed

    Terminating a union organizer is very problematic and you must be very careful what you use a reason for the termination.

    It hast be for cause, such as a violation of company policy, theft, provable incompetence etc.

    It is not easy but it can be done. I'm just wondering why someone who has been on the job 4 years is still only part time. It doesn't say much about his drive or abilities.

    It is my experience that if you really apply yourself, you can work your way into not only full time but a better position than clerk.

    I have to say that Apple paying $2 an hour more then the minimum wage for part time employees is more than most in retail.

    You right about the termination. It could be part-time because the person only wants a part-time job.

    Don't see the merits of this really. Apple has good working conditions and they try their best to remain competitive with Microsoft and Google by offering decent benefits and other extras.

    Someone who is part-time is bottom of the rung, and yeah it sucks to be that guy in the rat race, but it's not because the company is trying to hurt its employees.
