    Moderator's Warning:
    ‘Pressure tactics’: Unions publishing names of nonunion workers[W:702:1041]Yo! The topic is not each other. Please return to discussing that without the baiting and personal comments.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Nor did Turtle state he could fire without cause, Karl. It just wasn't brought up in the discussion.

    Re: ‘Pressure tactics’: Unions publishing names of nonunion workers

    Over 700 posts and not one business owner posting.

    Just to clarify, Wiggin earlier in this thread tried to make a distinction that these people that are being called "scabs" here are parasites.

    To be clear, all employees are parasites, but they are necessary to run the business.

    Union workers make more than they are worth and get benefits they did not earn so I don't see how anybody can defend them, other than the parasites taking what they did not earn.

    A worker is not a parasite.

    Saying a business that hires workers mutually depends on that labor to keep that business afloat, it's hard to draw the conclusion that workers are parasites. If that were the case, the host (business) would not need them to survive.

    That is true, but if it is being said here non union workers are parasites, who are they feeding off of?

    true to some point but claiming "scab" is a parasite is equally wrong. Unions generally inflate the cost of the commodity known as labor and rarely provide any additional value to the employer

    Not an owner, but his top manager

    With 140 employees under my roof

    I don't like union...never have....never will

    I prefer workers who can negotiate for themselves....who are motivated by their own success

    I don't like nor tolerate dead weight lying around.....here everyone is competitive and that keeps everyone sharp and employees running at near peak levels

    But we pay for the best employees....probably 15-20 percent over what our competitors pay in some areas

    Finding and keeping top talent is hard to do.....but worth it in the profit arena
