“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
i know this is hard to understand for the radical unionistas around here but.... "non-union" does NOT equal "scab".
and it's crap like this that makes me believe you unionistas don't actually give a **** about the workers....I'm positive you assume his workers are getting paid less and getting some sort of shaft at these evil non-union properties ( that unions constantly protest)... and I'm positive that you have no idea that his workers have it better than at ANY other property in Vegas, including the union shops.
yup, those evil scabs have better compensation and benefits than your precious unions have negotiated for at ...every... other... property.
but mah.. go ahead and call em scabs or whatever, it just shows everybody that you prioritize the union over the worker.
Since you guys are so desperate for a win, let's rephrase: people who take a union job in the absence of a strike, and refuse to pay a pro-rata share of union dues, are stealing both from the union as well as their fellow workers (Thrilla, you already agree with this in principle).
Several mainstream dictionaries define such people as scabs, a term which can also be used to describe strike-breakers and picket-line crossers.
There -- you guys no long have a dictionary to hide behind
Another blatant irrational lie--B.I.L. for short if you keep this up--I've said all along that COLA should be means-tested.
States in far better shape than Illinois--but still in bad shape--have enacted common sense fixes to public pensions.
As long as we have public pensioneers like you--common sense and wisdom will not prevail.
But you do expect the federal gov't to live within its means--just not IL .
