I'll bet all it would take to change your outlook on private prisons is to put union cards in the guards pockets. Then they would be wonderful!
Those kind of posts has turned me, a former union member, from being indifferent into now finding myself as being anti-union. That is thanks to the posts of you and your friends. I recently called a plumber and asked if he was a union member. When he said yes, I called another plumber who wasn't to do the work I needed.
Keep it up. Maybe others here will become anti-union and also politically active. And unions don't understand why their membership isn't growing. Stupidity, that's why.
Yeah High -- you do need a considerable risk premium (i.e., yield) for a company like this one. As far as unions, I don't care what your predisposition is. As far as my post, the evidence speaks for itself. If Doc screws shareholders, that's on them, but the public should be made aware of the repeated foulups by CCA. Any other organization would come under the same scrutiny. The prison guard crimes out in California's system are shameful and that was a public system with union guards, but that doesn't matter. If a company or system is not able to do an adequate job, it should be penalized. Don't give me repeated evidence of CCA's inability, and I won't be able to post. You hate the messenger when you should hate the message.
