    That's because the Wall Street assholes aren't the ones that put millions of people out of work.

    So, where are these working folks supposed to earn a living? From the government? Where does the government get it's money?

    anyways, shutting down port operations for one day is meaningless.
    Unless you're that guy that will miss a day's pay because of it.

    I don't believe union employees lose a day's pay for such occurences. The Union will fight for their workers to get paid.

    You would be believing, wrong. The union isn't going to pay for this. Besides that, not everyone that makes a living out of those ports is a union hand. There are plenty of non-union truck drivers in and out of their everyday.

    I didn't say "the union will pay for this".

    I said the Union will negotiate with the employer to get the workers reiumbursed for the day.

    And, a you're still wrong. You sure don't know much about how unions work, for a big time unionist.

    FACT: my union negotiated with the city and won back a vacation day, for all those who could not get to work due to the big snowstorm last year that the city didn't clean up.

    A big snowstorm and a bunch of protesters deliberately blacking access to workers are two completely different things,especially if some of protesters are the dock workers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
