Unions used to be a good thing but now they have run our jobs off to other countries because of selfishness! I believe all should be treated fairly but now days in this country, if you want to give up a decent paying job cause you wanna be greedy.... There's a man trying to raise his family that's work a total of 4 jobs over the past 25 years, every schedule, every day, every year & now been out of work for 5 months making very limited unemployment or that lost his factory job they closed down and is now making min wage flipping burger, that will gladly take your place!!!!!! Remind you now the government extends unemployment so when your out of work and job comes avail. They won't hire you b/c you been off so long! Just another drug that society will continue to get addicted too!#justsayin

How bout this sen. Brown an to all the others that think sitting on your butt is gonna fix all that is unfair with your job. Get up off your petted ass an get back to work. Quit pointing fingers at each other saying its the other one's fault. HELLO!! Its everyone's fault for the way things have got. From the lazy person who don't like doing no more than ya have to, to the greedy bunch who own the companies that send all our work overseas to make it for less. I understand, its not fair that we bust our asses everyday for the upper class to get richer an we can barely make ends meet. Fighting among ourselves is not going to fix squat. Instead start with our government, we have got to get back to taking care of our own that means union and non union. Quit all this fighting before we lose another plant to another overseas country who will be glad to take it from us.

Well well, another vote begging politician gets into the fray. Next thing you know Cooper will be shuttering the plant and moving its operations out of the country like so many others have.
