    I love the amount of money Norquist is dumping to try and effect the outcome.

    We all know that whether it's because you part of the 10% or whether it's because you're one of the ignorant one's who still think opportunities are available for everyone to become part of the 10%, you favor the lower classes having an unreasonable level of daily and financial struggle for the benefit of the few at the top. I think we all know that about you and have for quite a while.
    I don't give a **** what the CEO makes, whatever he makes is in his contract...

    Remember union employes get their paychecks from these CEO's who have gone to business school and worked their way up the corporate ladder to get into the position they're at. The only problem here is that a CEO can do a gunt union workers job but a grunt union worker cant do a CEO's job.

    But that's all that matter to you...... The difference in salaries..... Well guess what? you want to make the big bucks? you got to earn those big bucks and that takes a lot of schooling, time, effort, asskissing and patience - virtues almost NO union member has or has the tolerance for.

    Um, the CEO is not anti union. Norquist and his ilk are the haters. The CEO is interested in duplicating German unions.

    You behave as though those CEOs could do without their employees. Lets remember that all that schooling doesn't mean they can actually build or create or sell or market those ideas they've made businesses out of. You CEO worshippers are really ignorant about what CEOs can and cannot do and how well their companies would do without people willing to work.

    The relationship doesn't matter to me. That should be between the workers and the company, not politicians. But where I step into the fray would be if union membership becomes mandatory to work there. If the relationship works for the better, then people/workers would want to become members. If not, it should be their choice.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This CEO is from a different culture and mindset.
    Snip-

    A works council has specific rights and responsibilities similar to the German "Betriebsrat." Under the model, a works council represents employees on a wide range of internal matters at the plant, while their union represents them on terms and conditions such as hours, pay and benefits.

    The company said Chattanooga is the only major Volkswagen assembly facility without a union and that a works council at the Chattanooga plant would get a seat at the VW Global Group Works Council.. Tenn. VW workers to vote on German-style union

    I know, I wasn't speaking of this one CEO, clearly, and have pointed out as you have many times. I should find a way to better mention those CEOs that are American-ized.
