    Yeah, they were happy because they could get drunk and high on the job and could take naps in the bathrooms while being protected via points...

    Hell, when I worked a union job - seriously - if I wanted, I could have walked into the shop with a bottle of Jack in my hands - drunk as a skunk and smoking a blunt and they would have just sent me home for the day and would have subtracted 2 points...... But weed smoking and drunks were common in my workplace when I worked in a unionized steel fabrication facility...

    People shouldn't be getting drunk and driving around on lifts (trucks) picking up loads while flying down the aisles....

    Union workers just don't care, and I would expect any decent union worker to see that...... They don't care about anything except for their paycheck!

    So, what you are saying is that your anecdote overrides my anecdote because... magic or something. I'm not clear on that part.

    If I'm not mistaken, union or not it is illegal to operate machinery while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Being in a union doesn't give anyone a pass to break the law. Your employer may have work contracts with the union but the cops don't. If people did this frequently and no one alerted the police that's not the fault of the union.

    And a blind man doesn't know colors, but he (she) knows they exist.

    A def man knows sounds exist but he (or she) cannot hear them.

    Maybe you're just against hearing implants?

    He probably thinks all those union doctors and scientists need to go back to the shop and learn up on those kinda medical stuff you know?

    If it was not for college educated people most of us would not be here. And some of those were poor but got the opportunity to go.

    I never went to university. My job could be pretty much be classified as a 'skilled trade'. I'm not worried about being replaced by somebody else. That said, I find this to be a good idea regardless of whether you're a Republican or Democrat. People work their asses off trying to repay off school loans from careers which simply don't pay what was invested in them while at the same time struggling to pay off house bills etc. Essentially, I think universities are OVERPRICED for the jobs which people acquire once out of them. As one musician put it:

    You pay 150K just to earn 50K a year.

    Why? According to Boo, Collage degrees costs are a symptom of cut backs in federal money....So, I guess we need more taxes for that as well....hmmmmm, now who could we go after for that?

    Why should they care? They only have to meet the standard of the most worthless clingon in the place....
