You poor misguided soul. If you ever had the ability to think logically, you have lost it for sure. You have just quoted the playbook of the democratic unions are are too wound up in your yellow dog democrat colored sunglasses to see the forest for the trees. Thank God there are fewer and fewer of your kind in Oklahoma.

Your fellow democrats controlled Oklahoma from statehood to recently. Sandy Garret just finished up 20 years as director of Public Education. They really did an outstanding job didn't they?

WOW. Ignorance at its finest!

I guess you want toe lowest wages for your kids. Low taxes = low money for your kids. This RepublicanCare need to stop. I don't care about your wallet!

We need unions to keep the pay up. Now unions we have quick sand wages go down every where. Look at the 80's minimum wage stayed low $5.15 for like forever.($4.00) after taxes. There where no unions to bring up the wages!

Are you willing to drive a Geo Metro on food stamps so your boss can drive a $30,000 SUV to a Tea Party where he can complain about taxes that will cost less than your GEO!

Get off the low road look where it put us. If it don't work don't do it!

Here is some info Union pay vs non union!

over 50 percent of people dont pay any federal income tax at all. this program of welfare was started by the demcrats to enslave the working people by offering them more hand outs to buy their vote. I have always worked hard to get ahead i wouldnt want to get ahead by taking it from someone else. get off your ass and get a job you are not a poverty rights advocate you are a handout advocate

No... The poor is bad for your town no sales, the poor cost us more. It's best to not make poor!
Who made the poor? Republicans! You work hard with the Republicans passing laws behind your back to make you not get a raise in 5 years!

Just get a job? LOL you try it these days!
When was the last time a middle class worked at Walmart? Or got his car repo to get more money to pay the rent? Because some jack $%# lowered taxes.
Low taxes = less money to help pay their rent, less food stamps = get more money. HOW? they keep the pay low, they are making more & more minimum wage jobs in town. More people with less money, less sales!
Think about lowering taxes how does that help the poor, they need to live on those taxes as they work the many minimum wage jobs coming here. And the poor does not pay a lot of taxes, they don't have a $30,000 SUV / Truck they would drive to a Tea Party to grip over taxes that is like the poor's GEO METRO that runs on food stamps!

What would happen if all the poor got pissed off & stayed home, no workers at Walmart, etc. Strike!
Or the poor got out more & showed their poverty at rich places! Power to the poor people!
But they are to busy holding on to the handle going
to hell in a hand basket!

Face it, The Republican system failed stop going back to it!

You poor misguided soul. Unions are the primary reason America is in the shape it is in. Unions are the reason so many Americans are out of work. Unions are the reason 75% of America's manufacturing jobs have gone overseas. WOW, you are beyond help with your convoluted logic! You are too far gone to even discuss this rationally.

Republicans are Peddling the same failed economic policies since 1880.
Labor unions built this country!

The Founding Fathers were liberals. Did you think they made America by running it into the ground with low pay?
Democrats think for themselves, Republicans form think tanks to do it for them. Why do you think there is an Independence day
not a Co-dependence day?

You poor miss guided Republican just keep the pay the lowest & blame Obama for it! RepublicanCare you don't care only about your own pockets! What will all the low pay do to other jobs? bring down their pay also?! It's like quick sand. Put it this way What if Walmart payed the workers $12 an HR. Lowes, Homeland etc will go up. Why no worker will work for $6+ after taxes when they can make $12 at Walmart!( http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/retail/index.... ) And it will only cost the shopper $0.67 per $100+ spent to pay the worker $12. I guess Berkeley must be NUTS!!!!

Unions did many good things for the American worker. As the world shrunk and and the economy became a world economy, both unions and management failed to foresee the associated ramifications for the American worker. By that time union wages were out of control and American based companies could no longer compete in the world economy. Unions were not about to make wage concessions that would allow American companies compete. As a result, over 75% of American manufacturing jobs were exported to overseas sites where the cost of labor was much less.

You are correct for the era where unions dominated a small world. Unions and management killed American manufacturing jobs with their short-sightedness. You can argue this all you want, blame republicans, accept no union responsibility, blame democrats, and the bottom line will remain : manufacturing in America is a lost cause. America can no longer pay the big bucks desired by all concerned. Unions are dying, their influence dwindling away to nothing, and cavemen are trying to hang on by thread, while pointing fingers at everyone but themselves!

How greedy are you? Walmart makes 419 billion in sales a year & there is 7 billion people in the world. That would be $59.85 for everyone on the planet for Walmart alone. You now have Lowes, Texaco, Shell, Target, etc, etc.
What would it all add up $1,000,000 per everyone in the world. They make enough money for an union.
It would make better workers! You get what you pay for. Want low wages you get low workers. History says so! High turn overs, the job never gets done, over & over.
American based companies could no longer compete in the world economy? DUH!!
"American workers can not and should not have to compete with third world wage rates. Some Chinese manufacturers are paid 33 cents an hour according to a 2005 AFLCIO report. This cents-an-hour pay in many countries around the world has caused American companies and entire industries to move abroad. It also led Princeton economist Alan Blinder to estimate 42-56 million jobs could potentially be sent overseas."
It's not an issue unless you want more poor, crime, METH as income here! Get off the low road!
Why do the Republicans like to kill us?
Thus the term!

Having no unions pulls down the wages of others.
Do you remember the 1980's minimum wage was low for the longest time. All that union busting they did back then. There was no power to keep the wages high.
Sales dropped & dropped to the point they had to bring up the pay. No sales!
As a worker I see these big homes the rich bought &
Some of that home belongs to me I worked to give him some of that house & what do I get? Food stamps.
If we make more money we spend more money.
Money is like engine oil, it all goes back to the oil pan then gets around again!
Minimum wage should be $25 an HR. Just think of the money flowing, getting more sales.
Sales = JOBS, something the Republicans don't seem to know!
The Republicans want us to be a third world country! They would pay us all $0.33 like China if the could!
They act like Joseph Stalin, wants the lowest pay & did not like unions! Well look at the Republicans
they dress up in red, like Russia. And Oklahoma is a Red state! Get the point? They are Communist!
Want to kill peoples unions, their rights with out people knowing it. They don't want workers to think for them selves! They want to take away from you, lower taxes, so you will have to pay a fee for a Fire fighter to put out your fire. Low taxes no money for the gas tank = FEES!!!
Im sick of these stupid Republicans making life bad for everyone, then blaming Obama for it!
They have RepublicanCare! They only care about them selves!
Republicans are Communist!

You poor misguided soul! Your one of those union members you see on the news smokin dope and drinking on your breaks. You been doin' it so long you think that is the acceptable way to work. No more. You and your kind are going, going, gone making way for some workers that will work instead of sponging off the record of union workers long dead.

And I'm not blaming Obama. I'm blaming the unions that have ruined America for everyone! Get a little sense, put down your hooch and dope, and quit blaming republicans. Look in your union mirror to ee who is too blame!

NO!

We need unions or we all will get the lowest pay &
like quick sand everyone will get the low pay also, less raise or none at all!
Like Walmart if they payed $12 & they can.
Sales covers 99% of it!
( http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/retail/index.... ) Everyone around here will raise the pay or lose workers, or get really bad workers.
All the good workers went to Walmart!

If you seem to know more than the labor center at Berkeley then why don't you go down there & tell them how to do things!
Like they have not spent money on the study.
Or ( http://www.bls.gov/opub/cwc/cm20030623ar01p1.... )
Or ( http://www.seiu.org/a/ourunion/research/union... )

Man look what low pay is doing here!
( http://muskogeenow.com/story.php... )
What would be next with you & your low pay?
Police & fire fees to pay for things?
a $20 book of stamps? Low pay = less sales, less taxed!

Will the poor just stay home & say you can have the high prices for your self & give no sales?

When was the last time a poor person gave you a pay check? The last time he bought your stuff!
Now they are buying less, staying home.
More places to close here. No income!

Unions keep America! The wages are dropping, no sales no need for jobs! Less money put into SSI!

This is good reading, you need to read it!
We should be making $25 an HR & working less!

Money is like Engine oil, it all finds its way to the oil pan in time. Less oil your engine will die!

Or like fixing your house. It takes spending!
You don't fix a cracked foundation of the poor with duct tape & build the middle class on top of it!

That is what bugs me about the Tea Party going to a Tea Party in a truck, SUV that cost more than the taxes would be. If they are that greedy to gripe over a cost like a GEO METRO, then they need less sales! Keep bringing in those low paying jobs here, we all will just stay home & you can have it to your self because it cost too much, I have to pay my bills!
