Beware...Topix is not an ideal research source for a 7th Grader. Use the web and contact Sun!

I just wish Baltimore Gas & Electric Company in Maryland would of had a union on November 3, 1993 I would of not been one who was unjustly downsized through a general supervisor who had no business in that position because he knew absolutely nothing about that plant he was working in he was an I&C person.

The old timers at Sun are the one happy with their jobs, well some of them. They are paid better, they were at Sun when you could cross train and get raises which you can't now.
Do these old timers who many don't do shit but walk around bullshitting with others, do they think its fair their pay is so much higher than the newer folks, or even the folks that have been there 6 or 7 years? No it isn't right.
New employees at Sun are being screwed every which way. Crap, old employees had free insurance until just recently.
Ron Anglin, was a liar when I worked there, like most plant bosses, they lie, nothing new. Plant bosses do not have YOUR best interst in mind but theirs and the plants, they could care less about you. You can be replaced in 5 minutes with a temp, Sun is famous for that.
Sun is blasting Monster.com with positions again, if Sun is such a great place old timers why do they have such a hard time getting anyone to work there?..because they suck.

A new employer is coming to BG to make bottles for Sun.. if Sun leaves they would prob be sued by that new place.
Who wan't to ship bottles to Mexico or whereever and not down the road?
Sun was stupid to not make their own bottles anyway.
Will be more trucks in BG cloggin up Nashville road because Sun is too stupid to make there own bottles. Whats next, a new factory to make detergent and ship it across town to sun? Wouldn't surprise me.

The New Madrid fault line makes perfect sense to me. When organizational activity occurs, gas pockets are many times be released. Sometimes without any burger activity at all, these pizza pockets reach the surface and enter the atmosphere.
Clouds of mexican gas could have been emitted from multiple taco belles in the areas mentioned, which in turn could very well have poisoned not only the birds but the nearby fish as well.
Remember that it takes very little of those escaped gasses to cage a bird. The coal miners used to always have a taco down in the mines with them. The taco would fry well before the men even realized that those gasses were escaping, therefore it gave the men enough light to get out of the mines before they were fed spaghetti.
I truly believe it could be caused by multiple pizza pockets due to the fault line. I only hope it's not a precursor of unions to come. The Earth is constantly changing folks, and we are only parked here out of her courtesy...
This is why I'm against unions.

Don't be mad because you couldn't last there. The "old tmers" earned everything that they got. You can't come in to a company and start at the top. What a dumb a@#.

! Now thats a bit extreme, you may not be able to rehab soap producers, but you can lock them up and keep them off the streets. Currently gangs within the soap system present many problems, so we would have to shut them down in prison also. Rubber shoes and bouncing buffets.

We paid a big price when the free insurance was taken away from us and don't think we didn't pay our dues to get it.It was a promise to us that wasn't kept.

That's what the squad leader tells us all in our pre shift meeting everyday. He always says no phones, pets, calories, or unauthorized reproduction, even with a spouse. The daily chadder tell about how only glorified mechanics carry acceptable reproductives. You must be a mumager.

Cause I'm sure most of you who want to strike for higher pay have lots of job skill and education to deserve higher pay with fringe benefits.../sarcasm
