Great idea Man from Ohio,
I see exactly what you mean.
So do the right thing, quit your job, start your own company, pay hight wages, drive a bicycle, eat one meal a day and your employees will love you to death.

After you learn how to write withot making a mistake every two words so we can understand what you're talking about, you can explain to me why you have to organize.
I, as many others, don't have to, don't need to unite with others that are supposedly better so I can benefit from them. I do great on my own and have stopped depending on others when I turned 18.
wow union crap again

Good for S n K. Shut down and screw the union. No one needs to make that kind of money. I hope the GM plant goes next. That way Defiance and Ayresville will be gone to. Non union...the only way to live.

Poor SAP

I don't have to proof read, never had to use is.
Numbers is power you say? Ok, so in a group of ten you're only worth 1/10th of the group, right?

I can take out 10 union men, one at a time easely.

Besides , you spell sentence this way, with or without help from the union or proof reading!

Go on and keep thinking that way, no use arguing with 1/10 of an ignorant group.

Enjoy yourself.

If the unions would just close up their OWN shops...this country would be in a whole lot better shape.

If ya don't feel the company you work for pays you enough...go find one that will. LOL

I hear they're hiring in Mexico.

@tea bagger.

I guess you still haven't figured out I was talking about brains, not fists.

I see you went to jail, did you meet the founder of the union? Jimmy Hoffa?

all you stupid people that think the union caused the bankruptcy dont have a clue. iworked at the defiance plant for twenty years.as soon as the frech purchased the co. it went to hell. we ,the workers told the co. how to save money and be more productive with 50 year old machines.the co. was broke before the strike and we knew it was not going to be long before they closed the doors. it didnt matter if we went back for min.wage or not ,the owners had no clue on how to run the company.its sad that we made tools since 1921and the frenchies ran it to the ground.

I'm an end user, shade tree mechanic who just likes American Made, quality tools with a good lifetime warranty. I just got off of the phone with customer service at the new S-K, my 1/2" S-K breaker bar needs repair. I was told by customer service,(in their Sycamore, IL location), that they don't actually do any repairs to tools at that location. By, "tool repair", they mean, they just replace the tool. Problem is that at this moment, there is a 3 week wait for a "repair kit" for my tool and if I were to send my tool in for repair, there would be an 8 week wait for a replacement. Nice people in customer service, they're just not quite up and running yet.
