    That was just a comparison being used towards my point, not the point itself. The point I was making is that biggest union supporters oppose you position because they claim if people have a choice to join their union they wouldn't be able to get anything from employers.

    Quit embarrassing yourself, Deuce. I retired in my 50's, and like I said, I'm living comfortably.

    So maybe you should look for a career job where you can do that, also.

    Not embarrassing myself. I've successfully demonstrated how ridiculous a line of questions this is.

    "Why don't those minimum wage workers just get a better job" is not different than the question I asked you. Both are questions only a child would ask.

They show up for work more consistently, they feel on an equal level with management. Management's labor costs, insurance costs and usual overtime are predetermined and stable. The work force in particular is more stable. Non union companies have notoriously high turnover rates because they don't pay well, they work part time and have their schedules shifted all the time and people want more stability. That's a big problem for walmart and these fast food companies and that's why the organizing drives are getting bigger and bigger: I've been telling conservatives for years now that this would start to happen, and low and behold!

    What brings it on is the draconian hubris of companies like walmart and Mcdonald's: happens every time.
    Yeah, and that "stress relief" comes at a huge cost to consumers in the form of overpriced everything. Was my bare bones '09 Chevy Silvarado work truck with crank windows worth $28,000? Of course it wasn't. Thanks UAW.

    I mean no offense, but I seriously cannot understand the mindset of people like you. Here you are calling employers "thugs" because they expect their employees to show up for work. While at the same time, you are a member of the Teamsters, an organization who have a long history of actual, violent thuggery. The hypocrisy is truly astonishing.

    And anti-union operations have never been violent.

    You have demonstrated nothing of the sort. If a person doesn't like his job or the pay of the job, he can look elsewhere for something he would be satisfied with....as I did.
    You just looked silly with your posts.

    not every promotion has to be a high paying management position. just give them something to work for and more rungs on the ladder.

    does every pro labor move piss you off? come one. just help people get to a point where they don't have to draw assistance.

    yes, i'm sure they want to stay in a ****ty position at a ****ty wage long term.

    ****ing train them. it helps your business when workers are dedicated and loyal. i can't even believe that anyone would disagree with that.

    the first step is to organize. the second step is to come up with a list of realistic demands. the third step is to negotiate.

    Very good point. Especially since two wrongs always make a right.
