I did not say that. One hundred years ago unions did a lot to improve the lives and health of workers but for the past fifty odd years they have been an albatross around the necks of American!<quoted text>
You mean how they took care of their workers before the advent of unions right up to the 1920s? No sick leave, no vacation leave, no health plan, no pension plan, no severance pay, 60+ hour 6-day week and child workers. Is that what you would call "taking care of them?". Foundng union organizers were harassed, beaten and often killed. Ford, the anti-semite, employed almost as many goons to beat up defiant workers as he did assembly-line workers. Add the other employers to the roll-call. What's to prevent them from going back to that kind of regime?
Companies AND unions need to re-assess their respective roles,as both, in my view, are guilty of ignoring company AND worker rights. Tell me this, Rogue, what did GM., for example, do with the workers' share of pension plan contributions?
And quit using the word "bigot" when you're on the losing end of an argument. Don't forget, you went beyond lunacy when you branded me an "oil bigot". I was not taken aback, no, I just laughed so hard...
But you are a bigot. They ONLY reason why you hate Halliburton is because Dick Cheney used to be the CEO and nothing more.
