Another interesting thing is how profitable it can be for the temp agency. If they find a job for a person, they usually bill the company to whom they send the employee between 50%-100% more than the employee is paid. In other words, if they find the person a job, at say $12/hr, they bill the company between $15-$24/hr for the temp employee. In other words, the temp agency can get paid the same as the worker and never show up. No wonder the workforce is going downhill and middle class is sinking.
My daughter also worked through temp agency before being taken on permanent as an employee years back. All her checks were through the company, not the temp agency. She just had to pay a "fee" to the temp company, much like union members pay dues, so apparently, it can vary between temp company and temp company.
If it wasn't for the EPA, there would still be not a living organism in the Houston ship channel. It used to be that if you touched or fell in that water, you would immediately need to be transported to the hospital. There were no living fish, crawfish, or any other forms of human life and "state" control was the culprit. The oil and chemical companies owned the politicians in TX (many still do), and you could pump or discharge nearly anything in those waters. It was the EPA that required TX to stop doing that to their citizenry, just as acid rain, which was trashing the east coast was brought under management through EPA regulations. Remember Texas city and the refinery that blew up? They say it started by somebody throwing their cigarette off of a boat into the channel, and the channel was so saturated with chemical/oil products the water became explosive.
Barber probably hates the EPA and wants "self regulation" again as they used to have in Houston..,lol
This can work well, so long as you have ample storage facilities on the other end for that much gasoil. There is no tank cleaning involved, as it looks like these are new builds and therefore this is first load. Not a bad idea, as the owner would probably have had to take the newbuilds from S. Korea and sail in ballast to crude loading port. Now the owner can get paid something, even if it was for half a load. As long as the VLCC can fit at the product dock, any tanks they fill would be some revenue for them instead of none and they must have a decent discharge port.
As far as I know, any business can have their employees solicited for unionization so long as the employees are non supervisory or at least have to answer to a higher up. Even supervisory people can organize, but they aren't protected under Taft Hartley, as far as I know. A union can attempt to organize a workforce, but it requires an election by the workers to do so, and many times, the employer just tells the workers that if they think of organizing, the boss will find another reason to fire them or set them up to be fired. Generally, a company that uses a temp agency is the company that pays the worker...not the temp agency. For a company to try and claim that their workforce is comprised of employees of the temp agency is a little stretch IMO. Temp agencies are more like unions where they provide workers to a company on a temporary basis generally. This is also what many unions do, as they provide workers to a company and the company uses the union for qualified help. An example might be the carpenter's union. You aren't considered a union journeyman carpenter until you have served as an apprentice for a certain period, taken classes, been reviewed and then taken exam and finally given journeyman's status. That is why usually union carpenters can be handed a set of plans and they will build the home. If you just hire somebody claiming to be a carpenter out of the paper, they might not even know how to read more less read a set of plans.
And the rivers keep warming.
Maybe it is rails' hot air that is warming the rivers. Mini ice age? lol lol lol
Yes, it is rather comical to counter Rails. He is the one thinking coal is the next new energy boom, and that it is a clean source of energy. He probably thinks roundup is a good mouthwash. I guess it might be if you had algae growing on your teeth. Anyhow, the world just slowly keeps getting warmer, and it has nothing to do with Al Gore. Hillary is in trouble and as you say, if Donald Trump got involved here he would want the ship named the Trump Front, where he already would have chapter 11 papers ready. I think he must think he could have his lawyers file those papers for the Federal Govt. when he becomes president. At least Donald is entertaining. Since he claims that Mexico will pay for the wall, why doesn't he use his money to build the wall now, and then get paid back from Mexico when the wall is complete? That way the taxpayers aren't left holding the Trump bag. Well, he failed in the smallest form of government...marriage, but at least he didn't completely quit, but instead he gave it another go. Rails still won't answer when the fetus has a soul. I guess the cold weather has his mind in check.
You are correct in that any surgical procedure or medical procedure presents some danger to the patient. This includes treating toenail fungus. You certainly didn't find any posts of mine promoting abortion, but I did notice that you either refused or are unable to tell us when a fetus has a soul? Please use biblical references and not your opinion or something from the "Path of Enlightenment.:" You first say that any mother having an abortion will be going to hell (as if you make that determination), and then you say it is reasonable to have allowances for abortion if it applies to feral Gergusonians, Baltimorons or Detroitifiers. You can enjoy explaining those to your creator at the proper time.
Nice try. Remember, land both warms and cools much quicker than water and most of the land is found north of the equator. What you fail to see is that sea temperatures throughout average of the WHOLE EARTH are rising. Small pockets in certain places are moot. In case you haven't seen anything regarding water levels at atolls...they are rising. Rising water level is a result of warming, although, if one can get cold enough, ice expands. When you pick out a specific place such as midwest being cooler for a short period, you can clearly see that in Okanogan near Canada, they have had many days over 100F this summer all setting new records. Here in Hawaii, we are at record warms and record humidity levels. See water temperatures are warming. El Nino has tuna spending time off of Washington and Oregon. That isn't due to colder water temperatures, so enjoy putting on your down jacket, and after you have worn it for awhile, let me know if you are getting too cold, and we will see if we can't send you some thermal blankets.
" (all women who kill their babies will be going to hell, god will not forgive a woman who kills her baby)."
Wow Mr. Rails. Now you are telling us who and when God will forgive. Interesting concept. Now...Does the baby in the womb have a soul? Remember the story of Adam? God created him, but it was not until God "breathed into his nostrils the "breath of life", and man became a living soul. You are also quite hypocritical, in that you appear to love Trump for his hypocrisy having learned to tell the electorate what they want to hear in order to get elected. That just makes him a politician if he wants to get elected. I guess you aren't a Christian, so you should be happy that ten commandments can't be put on govt. institutions. After all....Please quote someplace in scripture where God wants national patriotism and especially national patriotism of "RED WHITE AND BLUE Patriotic Light" as you demand. Enjoy your crow.
Well, so much for your comments about it being much cooler than usual in Austin. Maybe your son read the temperature inside of his air conditioned house. When you insinuate that mid 90's in Austin this time of the year is "much cooler" than normal, maybe you should go check monthly average temperatures in Austin historically. You insinuate that normally it is 105F everyday, and that is just false. Enjoy.
Flashnews for you rails. I know that you also don't believe Australian govt, but only the thermometers in Trump tower.
Summer heat waves and sea temperature
"Since the 1950s, Australian temperatures have, on average, risen by about 1°C with an increase in the frequency of heat waves and a decrease in the numbers of frosts and cold days, except in the regions immediately to the west and north-west of Sydney. Since 1900, the sea temperatures are showing to be two degrees warmer."
I don't know why it would make any difference to NAT unless they weren't able to get their ships chartered. It may mean some exports of crude from the US which will cause other countries with exports to have less. This in turn will allow refiners to jack the price up higher on gasoline, as they will be claiming the exporting of the crude forced them to pay more from US suppliers because those suppliers are sending their product elsewhere, and thus they need to pass costs off on the American consumer.
Weren't you spouting 3000 on the Dow a few years back? What happened to that call? Was it just too early, or are we headed there this time? #$%$
China is going into depression, because they are copying the great teacher "USA." Loads of Chinese companies have shifted their location to Viet Nam, where instead of paying workers $300/mo, they can get the same worker for $100/mo. Isn't that the essence of capitalism? Get the cheapest labor money can buy and the best politicians money has bought. The countries that will survive the best in this downturn are the ones that have the best social safety net. The others will be in violence and chaos, and the US is a good candidate for that. Wait til the utilities start closing shop, because they don't have enough ratepayers paying their monthly bill to stay open.
Wrong...I got out of NNLX when it was way way way higher than today, and I did the same with RTK.....Years ago. You apparently, stayed here hyping RTK all the way down to the reverse split and payout to Ramsbottom. If you couldn't see what Ramsboy was doing, shame on you. I will admit that I don't win em all, and have taken a beating on some upstream oil stocks, but then I don't think I was alone in not thinking oil would collapse 60% in a year....but hey...there is much further room to fall.
lake gets a little bit wound up and complete truth isn't always his forte. However, your continual global warming denial is also a complete falsehood. In case you didn't know, July figures that are in show the warmest planetary conditions for earth in over 100 years. Now...I know you hate the US reporting such, but just get over it. Global warming is about "GLOBE." and not individual locations experiencing anomalies. Enjoy your day. It will be a warm one, as it is on the floor of the exchanges today.
