Why is it a "new staffer" always gets the blame when something goes wrong? Do these new staffers have supervisors? Or has it just become acceptable to pass the buck? If I were a union worker I'd be peeved by this!

They probably couldn't afford the union made hardhats. The staffer thought he/she was saving some money.

Just wait a while. They'll all be made in China. and saving money should be a top priority for them.

I wanted to see what Arctic had to say about this. But he must be in a much better place, fishing on a lake somewhere!

Funny...

Every place I have worked that required hard hats had the hats provided by the company...not the union!

And of course managers in charge of purchasing would rather save money for the yatch and vacations than buy American.

I wonder what would happen if I started a company that made Chinese Flags...and I found a way to make them cheaper than a chinese company can?

Do you think the WTO will protect me from Chinas "protectionism"?

I doubt it....the WTO only cares about keeping the rich above the rest of us!

Exactly Neko. And if we, as a country, don't start getting protectionistic ourselves very soon, we are f'd.

The Union would have never agreed to make them anyway. It would have interfered with nap time.

If I were a union guy, I'd refuse to wear them.

Who knows what they are made of, they could be full of lead and cheap crap.

What is happening to our country? It is time to take it back.

those union boys better start looking at their clothing, tv, shoes, furniture, etc. before they squeek about such nonsense.
they have a freaking job, so shut up and get back to work.
