jso2897: You may note than the punks have only snot and ad hominem arguments - all these soft-assed farkers live off what unions have won for them, and then spit on them. How quickly the soft, spoiled middle class forget where they came from.
jso2897: Bashing unions is all the rage these days - and the low-minded, shiat-tier coward mentality always goes along with the crowd - it's a way for the weak, scared, and insecure to feel strong for a few fleeting seconds.

MyRandomName: Labor unions are allowed in all 50 states. You should be more surprised by your own ignorance
l3yteme: It seems like I see those "Shame On ___" signs at least once a day when I go out. Are there really that many union protests going around? Even a church had one although I have no idea why. Somehow I think the only ones coming out ahead are the sign makers.
ReverendJynxed: Some men are born marketing geniuses...[bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com image 300x282]
Satanic_Hamster: Heh, that's awesome. Like how they matched up the font and colors.
mbillips: That Guy Jeff: ifky: mbillips: What labor union covers workers at car dealerships? Is there a mechanic's union? Maybe the cleaning company is unionized?Looks like the building in the back is being built or remodeled. I'm guessing they used a non union contractor to do the work.What an incredible travesty, someone actually hiring whoever they want to do perform work instead of going through a specific organization, like they live in a free country or something.(there's a reason everyone hates unions now)Scab!/Only thing I hate about unions is that they don't have open membership. In states with closed shops, you have to know a guy to get a union card, and without a union card you can't get hired in a closed shop. Union membership should be automatic, not a prerequisite.//A lot of unions are more concerned with preserving their members' high pay than expanding. I worked in newspapers for 10 years, and never heard of a single Newspaper Guild attempt at organizing a paper that wasn't already organized.///The only way for workers to get anything close to a fair shake from jerb creators is to organize. There's just too much power on the employer's side for it to be a fair contract otherwise.
BGates: The labor union is mad because a small portion of the remodel (drywall) was done by non-union guys. Dealership came back and said they hired the lowest bidder for that portion of the job. Piss on the union for complaining about it. Really funny part is they hired temps to picket the place.
FilmBELOH20: I think calling drywall hangers "carpenter craftsmen" is a bit of a stretch. I watched some guys redo my living room, then when it came time to redo my kitchen, I bought the tools and did it myself - including replacing parts of the ceiling, doing all of the taping, mudding and texture. This included filling in a doorway, placing recessed lights where none had existed, and a bunch of other finish work. I'm now redoing my basement by myself as well. As long as contractors are following IBC to the letter, it shouldn't matter whether a company or an individual uses union or non-union labor. Maybe in the case with plumbers and electricians - but it doesn't take a ton of skill to do the rest of the things involved with building - especially interior work./video nerd with no education involving carpentry//oh, and non-union video nerd at that
Gulper Eel: I'm waiting for the union that brings the ten-foot-tall inflatable rat to its protests to be greeted by a chamber-of-commerce group with a fifty-foot-tall inflatable cat.
The_Original_Roxtar: found a flyer with the union's beef spelled out on it[thisistwitchy.files.wordpress.com image 850x1100]so yeah... they hired a non-union carpenter and the union got all pissy that they weren't getting their cut.
Misconduc: This was ripped off from Publix, the Tomato pickers in south florida demand 1 cent raise on every tomato picked, they put a "Shame on Publix" sign in which someone put up a sign saying "For having lower prices than Winn-Dixie or Walmart!".
