It sounds as if you use the term "scab" as a negative but in actuality it is simply someone doing a job who wants to do the job. A job left undone by someone else who chose to abandon their position and their paycheck.
this guy has no backbone or balls, but has on problem showing you how dumb & ignorant he is.

That's probably not a good idea. We have to be patient. That is definitely not the answer.

whatever happen... happen behind closed doors. he probably was looking after his profits, are concerns were none of his. because we have little work to do, they started on the first order of 130 military bearings. but not enough forgings to fill the order, a vender forgings are on the way. still NO SCAB FORGINGS

As much as we'd like to "crack heads", you'll only find yourself sitting down at the county jail and paying restitution to the SOB's. And then you'll end up a convicted felon and have to work as a SCAB with no benefits, just like these idiots they keep scraping up out of the storm drains. Even if it doesn't feel like it, we're hurting them them the hardest by not producing parts. I'd like to know a dollar amount that they have lost by us standing out on the street. I'm sure it is a significant loss that cannot be filled by foreman's turned operators and scabs that can't read blueprints. If this goes on for much longer, it's going to take them forever to recoup.

Give us a FAIR contract and this will be all over!!! Otherwise we'll stand strong, waiting.

Yep, how dare I be able to provide for my family. Not really a great wage for a skilled trade. It's not my fault we have retards running the place into the ground.

Why would you gentlemen even consider going back to work for such an evil empire with what you call liars and other unsavory things? Seems if you had any marketable skills you would move on to the greener pastures that your "skilled" trade warrants. To stand in the cold for a place you seem to truly dislike seems irrational. Go utilize your skills. Or just stand out there and continue name calling.
