This shit your making up is true?!well i disagree. i have held several different positions with several different companies and negotiated a salary and vacation almost every time. just because a company says its their policy for one week vacation after a year does not mean you cant get two weeks the first year. same with wages. if your more qualified with more experience a company will bend because they know it will cost them more in the long run training someone new.
however your leverage greatly diminishes if you are unemployed at the time.
i worked for one union and received a pay decrease as soon as they were voted in. i lost my free medical/vision/dental that he company payed 100%. real life kinda shatters your claims.

I doubt it, he is a dishonest person, look at the lies he post here, and no amount of education could supplant dishonesty and nobody can keep a dishonest employee for long.

Let me break it down as simply as I can:
If I had lied, someone would be able to show me one.
But nobody ever has.
And only trolls set bait. It's stupid and juvenile, and it's what people do who aren't intellectually equipped to have rational, adult debate.

Read it again boxtard. They were already exempt from paying for political activities. They just had to pay for the expenses the union had for gaining better pay and benefits. Why should someone get the benefits and not have to pay for the efforts to acquire them? That's not fair. I thought you wingnuts were all about fairness and paying for what you get.
And if the law is all about worker freedom, why were police and firemen excluded? Don't you want freedom for those most valuable public servants too? Why do you hate the police and firemen?

A Breitbart provocateur, by his own admission, went looking to provoke a confrontation.
And he got what he wanted.
Steven Crowder Admits He Went To Michigan Protest To ‘Prove’ Union Thugs ‘For Who They Truly Are’
"I want to make something very clear here, Sean. I never went out here to try and be assaulted, as leftists might say. I went out here to prove the left for who they truly are. Certainly, these union thugs. And I’ve achieved that."
So how had he planned to prove "union thugs" "for who they truly are?” By just “asking questions?” Crowder didn’t say and Hannity didn’t ask.
Talking Points Memo (h/t/ Aria) reported that Eddie Vale, spokesperson for the AFL-CIO, has said the protest was "almost universally peaceful and calm." Furthermore:
“While of course we do not condone the actions taken by a small group of people, the disciples of James O’Keefe were attempting to instigate the crowd all day,” Vale said, referring to the right-wing, video-camera-wielding provocateur.“As soon as the incident happened our marshals worked with the police to move the AFP people through the crowd to safety with no injuries.”
In fact, the video shown on Hannity seemed to show protesters intervening on Crowder's behalf. But Crowder didn't bring it up and Hannity showed no interest in Vale's perspective.

LOL! Your desperate, flailing attempts at self-justification are truly comical.
Dave made a meaningless typo, just like countless people do every day here.
You childishly mocked him for being stupid.
I called you out on your petty, dickish behavior.
And now you can't stop trying to justify your childishness by dishonestly attacking me.
Hmmmm, when have we seen THAT before? Must be a day that ends in 'y'. LOL!
Grow up, WATB.

The GOP key to getting what they want - run bait-and-switch campaigns.
One striking thing about Governor Rick Snyder's successful push for a right-to-work law in Michigan -- and Scott Walker's similar push against public employee unions in Wisconsin -- is that they relied on bait-and-switch tactics.
In their campaigns, neither governor announced their support for right-to-work laws, or more broadly, their opposition to labor unions. They both campaigned as moderate Republicans, interested in a straightforward agenda of job creation and deficit reduction.
Not only did Snyder not support right-to-work laws during his gubernatorial bid, but he didn't campaign as an opponent of labor, making this reversal a huge surprise for Michiganders writ large.
Given Scott Walker's similar actions in Wisconsin, it seems that this is becoming a favored approach for Republican politicians.
But it's a short-term strategy, destined to produce a whole lot of one-term office holders.
People don't put up with that shit very long, and as we saw from the Presidential election, you try to screw over voters, they turn out to defeat you and your dishonest tactics.

danny BOY, despite your pathetic denials, you have been shown to be a liar on here numerous times.
Let me break it down as simply as I can, BOY:
* you constantly post that you NEVER lie
* NO honest person claims that they NEVER lie
* those who claim they NEVER lie ARE liars
BOY, can you name any honest, public figure who incessantly proclaims as you do "I never lie"? No? That's because it's a narcissistic comment only liars make.
Honest people don't constantly, desperately plead "I never lie", danny BOY. You must fantasize that the repetition itself will transform you from a pathologically lying sociopath into a healthy, honest person.
danny BOY: racist, plagiarist, pathological liar.
#44648 Dec 13, 2012
You have never shown me to be a liar.
And any reasonable person who is relentlessly falsely accused of something, day after day, week after week, month after month, will occasionally defend himself. Nothing remotely pathological about that.
The pathology lies entirely in the lunatic who is obsessed with making the false accusation.
Truthful people don't have to constantly, desperately accuse someone of the same thing without ever offering any evidence. You must fantasize that the repetition itself will transform your false accusation into the truth.
What a sad, desperate, obsessed WATB you are, Ted.

Corbett has to go. He soft pedaled Jerry Sandusky. He did voter suppression. Now he is refusing to cooperated with the ACA. His ass is mine, in a Friendly fashion of course.

Has anyone found one yet?
I wonder why? LOL!
#44654 Dec 13, 2012
How clueless ARE you, danny BOY?
Repeatedly, incessantly, and unendingly stating, as you do, "I never lie" is all the proof required to confirm that you ARE a liar.
EVERYone lies to varying degrees, BOY. You deny that you lie to ANY degree. Therefore, you ARE a liar.
Keep denying it to keep proving it, BOY.
!LOL! You sociopathic idiot.

Democrats Find Out What's in ObamaCare and Don't Like It.
Senate Democrats who helped pass ObamaCare are finally seeing what is in it and aren't really so sure the massive tax increases mandated in the legislation will be good for their constituents, especially when it comes to the medical device tax which is set to further increase on January 1.
With some of their most influential constituent groups facing onerous tax increases that are slated to help fund the law’s mandates and regulations, Senators like Al Franken (D-MN), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), John Kerry (D-MA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and others -- all of whom voted in favor of the law -- are aiming to delay or outright repeal parts of ObamaCare.
As I've written before, one of the most devasting taxes long-term is the medical device tax. Medical device development requires highly specialized education and an expensive degree in bio-medical engineering. Now that medical device companies are already cutting jobs because of ObamaCare costs, many students will no longer find it worth spending money on an expensive education only to have their investment not pay off. In the future, this will cause a shortage of medical device engineers which will further snowball into an overall decay of medical device innovation, leaving Americans and the world will have fewer life saving devices.
A bipartisan outcry has been raised over the device tax, and for good reason. The tax was enacted to help fund the $1.76 trillion in new spending authorized under Obamacare, and it will actively undermine production of and improvement on medical devices which are crucial to patient outcomes.
The device tax is a tax on gross receipts (sales, essentially) instead of a tax on profits, so the tax will be imposed even if a company sells its products at a loss. This one detail ensures that the 2.3% tax is deceptively large: the medical device industry’s tax burden is expected to double because of the Taxmageddon increase; some companies (such as Zoll, which manufactures defibrillators) will see their profit margins shaved by up to 40%.
A recent study found that investment in medical research and development will fall by $2 billion per year because of the device tax—and that is a cautious estimate. R&D dollars drive innovation and innovation lowers costs, so the tax’s adverse effect on investment will keep expensive medical devices from becoming affordable and widely available in the future.
More immediately, the device tax will gouge health consumers for essential products. Taxes on companies often end up hitting consumers as higher prices, and the device tax is no different. The actuary for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services made it plain that Obamacare’s “fees and the [device] tax would generally be passed through to health consumers in the form of higher drug and device prices and higher insurance premiums.” In other words, patients – many in dire need of care – may find crucial medical products out of their reach as a result of the 2.3% tax.
Whatever costs cannot be passed along to patients will be absorbed by the medical device companies, which will lead businesses to cut jobs as they tread water to stay afloat. One study found that, depending on the elasticity of the tax, the medical device industry will be forced to fire between 14,500 and 47,100 workers—up to 10% of the workforce.

He got free Healthcare until the unions came in...hahahaha
Was this in the 50's?
Free healthcare..just when he was spotted with pigs flying out his ass.
Then the bad unions took it away...booohoo
Sounds like a Freddy the Freeloader story to me.

ANOTHER dannyBOY lie, as anyone reading this or the Chambersburg thread can confirm for themselves.
