    . You cant build a crane with a degree, or a painted line on the floor.. Alot of people came thru the shop over the years. Even one was a professor. But it didnt do him any good in the manufacturing of what we did. You can have all the education you want but if you dont apply it and work the field you were schooled its wasted time. There are a lot of smart people that dont have degrees that have made a lot of companies a lot of money by going over and above what their "JOB" is. A lot of things wouldnt have gotten out of the shop if it wasnt for these dedicated people.Sure you have people that take advantage of things in both union and non-union shops and that is cause the people who are suppose to deal with it stick their head in the sand and let somebody else deal with it. You say the good will rise to the top but there are a lot of people that take credit for other peoples actions in manufacturing.And the little guy doesnt get credit for it. Its not a one man show and everybody has to work as a team to achieve this.You cant have people sitting on meetings ,a few of these people go so they dont have to do the work they were hired for and can complain about the the people that do their job. If people dont see this it will be the end You cant BULLY people and make them go backwards and be happy productive because of a few whiners. These people that are whining should do their job and not worry about other people and if they dont like it move on. They built cranes before they came here and they are doing this for their personal gains. Its too bad that people are so blind and only see what they want to see.
