because of the Walker recall situation, imo. Other than that, WHO the hell strikes when unemployment is 9% and the global economy is teetering, at best? Unreal!! There's some REAL union leadership for ya!
ya i think those crap union workers oughta get on their knees and pucker up rite you fuggin idiot. a company that is 5 cents from bankruptcy trys to break the union does nt make sence. god i hope you invest like you talk so you starve to death soon
I have no problem with the pay and benefits of private unions. When companies no longer can afford they negotiate or go out of business. It doesn't affect my taxes in any way, but the public unions are a killer. They have the school boards, loaded with ex-teachers, and negotiators on both sides, paid off with union dues. Look up the pay and benefits of your public employee's and you will be shocked. Simply cannot afford.
To the 200, hang on, the teacher union is coming for support with a xmas tree, lots of food, money and gifts. All you need to do is support them and sign the recall of Walker so they can continue to work 185 days a year with free health care and a pension of 25 to 35 thousand and up per year!
Union greed has killed many good companies. Unlike GM we are not likely to have the government bail out MTW. I agree that with so much suffering nation-wide it is hard to understand workers who are well-paid, with benefits better than most, choosing to try to kill the golden goose. Pure hubris.
Also, another poster earlier used the phrase "hard working union members" which I thought might constitute an oxymoron. At our local GM plant they frequently punched each other in and out of work and did what the wanted during the day.
They may do that at some companies,not mtw,you get caught and your done.Also they have random drug testing.I have seen people fired for failing the test.Also they are not lazy.Some work 10 to 12hrs a day.,6days a week.Olso it's hard work,and can be dangerous.Don't judge them just because they are union.If they are so lazy how is it they are the leaders in ice machines and cranes with quality?They have had a long working relation with the mtw company.It's sad that it has come to this.
