tell me again why Unions are good for us
I had an onion bagel today
Screaming winds of infernal violence alternate with periods of dead calm as one nears the surface of Uranus, according to a new analysis of the gas giant.
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."
I know the IBEW stills does a great job on the training, I know several and have worked with many over the years. I know an elevator mechanic that went through all the training also (don't know what union), but really, how many others still have a viable training program.
Besides, most of these these unions, like at Hostess, have no training programs that I know of. You sign on and pay dues.
I'll back a good Union shop that properly trains and has real concerns for the employees.
I've worked Union and have worked as a manager and dealt with union issues.
Worked one place, that had to spend $$$$$ on legal fees etc. to fire someone caught, on site, smoking weed (in a no smoking area to boot). That's the real COST OF A UNION WORKFORCE these days, not being able to FIRE workers that need to be fired. That's money that the company could spend toward pay raises and healthcare.
Don't even get me started on the UAW and there totally stupid union rules.
Don't assume you know the people posting on this board.
That's why you mostly hear about the pay your dues and your in the union unions.
yep, gotta love those unions alright.
Nothing wrong with sticking to a business model that produces crap, with a shelf life jokingly measured in decades.
Products rumored to be the last thing standing after a Nuclear holocaust, right beside the Roaches and Fire Ants.
A product development team garnered from the last Covered Wagon Company.
The company filed for Bankruptcy a couple of times, them gets hooked up with some Parasite Hedge Funds.
Hostess is akin to the Slide Rule, or perhaps the Abacus. When was the last time anyone here purchased anything from Hostess?

HAAA, when we say the same thing about welfare recipients, you cry like a wounded buffalo!!- Sopchoppy
"...and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them."--Margaret Thatcher Obama would love to argue with her... He only needs it to last another 3yrs.
The basic principle of a union is not a bad thing, but money seems to corrupt everything sooner or later. Unions make competing in a global economy almost impossible.
