Just wait until Texicans vote to succeed...and are annexed by Mehico. You know what they'll be speaking, right senor?

Until then it won't hurt your feelings if I suck up $30 an hour will it?

"Right to work", give me a break and call it what it really is "Right for management to screw the worker". "Lets keep doing as we are" and let the corporations and big banks that we lent money to so they would survive go ahead and keep giving it to us up the keister. Don't play the fool!

What many of the GE workers get paid is based on Unions choking management to demand high than deserved wages. Many unskilled workers get more than they would in the majority of the market.

They get paid more than educated, skilled workers in the service industry. Appreciate what you get paid now, becaaus eit may only last a little longer, tjhis gravy train you ride.

How absolutely stupid are you people who are posting on here against unions? I hope it is some local company owner who is extremely wealthy or someone employed by a Manufacturers Association or someone who works for a local mom and pop shop who still has morals, values and ethics and treats their employees with respect, dignity and pays them fairly.
If ever there is a need for unions it is right now, today. take a look at working conditions where you are employed, I'll bet safety is not a primary concern, take a look at working conditions(time off and sick pay, health care provided by your employer)how much of that has been taken away and yet the management still has those benefits and more. Take a look at new hires who are forced to take the job you have at half the pay or less for the same work.
Take a look at grievance procedures if you even have that anymore, if you have a problem at your place of work do you have a place to go where a manager will listen and honestly take steps to correct the situation? Take a look at the workload, are you being forced to do the job of three or four others who were "left go" due to "downsizing" while the company is posting record profits, the upper management is making much more sitting on their as-es while the employees are the ones buttering the bread.
I know some will get on here and say that they don't need a union to provide that type of work atmosphere and I would hope that there are still some decent employers in Erie who treat their workers with respect but I know there are many who don't.
Don't come back with that cheesy "we have to compete globally' mantra, that is untrue, there are many successful corporations who work hand in hand with their unions and all are successful.
We wouldn't need unions if there was no corporate greed! why should the corporation not share the wealth with the people who helped make it?

I work at Erie Insurance, I have been employed there for over twenty-eight years, in that time the place is no fun to work for anymore, I am in management and many who work under me would love to form a union, I wouldn't mind it myself. The Hirt family would s--t if the workers tried to organize. The guy in charge came in from some small insurance company in Chicago and he thinks he can run things like he did there, he is a bimbo, doesn't grasp the concept and all the while making the company a joke in many respects. We all wonder how long it will take for the board to take notice. Hopefully someone will catch on before more damage is done.

Frank, you are a fool! I agree with Jack, if things are bad fight to make it better, why roll over for the corporate fools. Stick in there and fight, way too many have turned around and bent over, that's why our country is in the shape its in. The people who are the "wealth creators", the middle and lower class have been steam rolled by the "job creators" with no regard.

You are the FOOL!! If things are bad QUIT!!! go get a better Job!
REALLY the man that owns this company can run it how he wants. ITS HIS!!! You are just as bad as the wealfare class wanting your entitlements. bottom line is, you sign on for a job and agree to the wages, when the time comes that you think you deserve more, ask for a raise. If you are turned down or if working conditions are unfavorable, MOVE ON!!!! The company owes you nothing more that an agreed on wage.
Unions are destroying American companys and forcing them to leave to be able to compete. There is no blue collar worker worth $30 hr.
There was a time that unions helped fight against horrible working conditions, but now they are nothing but GREED and trying to steal as much of a companys money as they can, cuz God knows these companys dont deserve to make money, they are all evel. Bet you didnt think it was evil when you first got that gravy job!!

Your are an ass clown. That's the spiritif you don't like it quit, let the festering continue, to hell with working conditions and everything else like a previous poster mentioned.
The company and the owner would not be without the labor of the employee, a key ingredient you failed to mention. And yes the owner does have many to thank for his operation, from that bank that lent him the money and took the risk to the employee who handles business day in and day out to the customer who supports the business. No one succeeds without the help of others, you must have forgotten that out in the back woods of Wattsburg, Pa.. Wake up dunce, the company does owe you if they hire you and you sustain the business, sheseiza! are you that simple minded? probably a Romney Tea Bagger.

Yes they owe you the paycheck at the end of the week. thats it nothing more.
I would say if the company is hiring you, in effect providing you a way to feed your family, maybe its you that owes the company something..
