I wonder how all those that gave their lives fighting for your right to work for the Land of the Rising Sun would feel about this if they were alive. You know...the ones cowardly killed by the Japs at Pearl Harbor?

The difference is that America is putting $$ in their pockets from that, dingle berry?. Much like Japan is putting $$ in their pockets from us with tmmk. And paying the jap t/m's a bonus that we don't get with the $$!!!!

How does it feel to be a hypocrite? You advocate a work environment that you have never participated in and all the while working at non union Toyota. It must be hard to look at yourself in the mirror......being the big union guy you are. What a joke!

I'm so curious to know how old you are? We know the maturity level, just wondering if the age matches. The military is shrinking btw! On its way out I imagine...no need for it no more! Lol

Ignorant comparison. My maturity??? Haha! You have done a fine job representing the union that you are not a part of. They should make you an honorary UAW member for life. Maybe you could pay union dues out of your Toyota retirement to make yourself somewhat legitimate.

I don't click on links on a public message board but have you ever checked say, walmutz employment practices?
By the way, did you know that this is a free country? You can live and work wherever you want.

Until you get charged $15 for a burger then you would flip out and cry how un American it was...until you found out it was a union place then you would be ok with it on line...but in real life sneak off to McDonald to pay normal prices.

So you will earn the good bucks off the unions back (they are responsible for your pay) and just laugh at the McDonald's workers because they weren't as fortunate. You're a winner man

A couple lies....

"Free country. Live and work where you want."

You can't live and work where you want. If that was true, no one would work in a factory like TMMK. Management knows if you walk out, you won't necessarily find a job. There's a reason why there's an "unemployment rate".

"Pay higher prices because of higher (union) pay."

If a company pays more in wages, the company earns less in profit. The company cannot charge more for the product because demand will go down. The company with union wages (aver. 26% higher) will just have to post lower profits. Union busters lie by deliberately conflating profit with demand.

Companies that make less profit will be like Chrysler and GM. All their profit goes to labor and ridiculous retirement benefits. The product suffers from lack of investment in it. The company exists to make products and profit. They pay you to do a task....they do not owe you a life, just a living. The union does not dictate wages, that argument is tired and outdated. You say union buster and I say you are a union thug....pretend tough guys, little sawed off pusses that run their mouths and do shitty work. That's the definition of the union, it's all about you and your interests. The union is not coming to TMMK, nor is it rising in any other industry. It only declines and continues to die year after year. Fact.
