Another Saturday nigt and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
I blew in town 40 years ago, I ain't seen a lotta girls since then
If I could find'em I could get'em but as yet I have'nt met'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in ohhhh

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
Another fella told me he had a sister that looked so fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strong resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein ohhhh....

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
It's hard for a fella, when he don't know his way around
If I can't find me a honey to help me spend her money
I'm gonna have to blow this town ohhh....

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in awful mess

You just keep saying the same crap.

1. Where did they find jobs that were better?
2. According to the BLS, they were paid 20% higher than the regional average while at ACS.
3. If they found better jobs, why does the union continue to beg for the jobs back?
4. If the company was unprofitable without the former ACS employees, why would it not fold like the union convinced the former workers it would do?

Those former employees were stupid to listen to the union bosses. It cost them good paying jobs. And now the former employees of ACS hope they can qualify to work as a greeter at the non-union Wal-Mart.

Just say "NO!" to jobs.
Just say "NO!" to 15% higher wages.

Just say "YES!" to union bosses.

The truth is that the majority have moved on or crossed the picket line. The only better paying jobs are in western North Dakota working in the oil industry...

Losing money is not a wise corporate strategy. Yet, unless American Crystal Sugar Co. agrees to return to contract negotiations with the 1,300 workers the company locked out a year ago, the company is on course to repeat its sorry fiscal 2012 performance. After the company replaced all its seasoned employees, production costs increased by 23 percent and payments to its shareholders lagged behind the rest of the industry, which saw their shareholder payments increase. That followed a year in which Crystal Sugar was hugely profitable, with $1.5 billion in net earnings.

If you only had a brain.

Sugar prices since August 1, 2011 have declined 25%.

http://www.tradingeconomics.com/commodity/sug...

Since prices are directly related to profits, the expectations are that profits will follow. This is an elastic curve for profitability, and the processors do not simply work on a margin. As such, the market will fluctuate from year to year based on a matrix comprised of price, tonnage, and processing/marketing costs.

Prices for the 2012 crop are steadily increasing, and profits will also increase.

Next!

Yeah, read PRODUCTIONS COSTS, son...That's where union workers produced and scabs SUCKED !!!

After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, and the vampire, he had some awful substance left with which he made a scab.

A scab is a two-legged animal with a corkscrew soul, a water brain, a combination backbone of jelly and glue.

Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles.

When a scab comes down the street, men turn their backs and angels weep in heaven, and the devil shuts the gates of hell to keep him out.

No man (or woman) has a right to scab so long as there is a pool of water to drown his carcass in, or a rope long enough to hang his body with.

Judas was a gentleman compared with a scab. For betraying his master, he had character enough to hang himself. A scab has not.

Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage.

Judas sold his Savior for thirty pieces of silver.

Benedict Arnold sold his country for a promise of a commision in the british army.

The scab sells his birthright, country, his wife, his children and his fellowmen for an unfulfilled promise from his employer.

Esau was a traitor to himself; Judas was a traitor to his God; Benedict Arnold was a traitor to his country.

A scab is a traitor to his God, his country, his family and his class.

Honey Slew Slew just does not understand when to cut and run.

2011 crop prices were 25% less.
Current full time employees have been on the job for 14 months.
Former ACS employees have been out of work for 14 months.
Production is far more efficient with the current workers than if the former ones came back.

Those union members should have accepted the last contract offer.

BTW, how is the union's strike fund holding up? Better donate to the Fargo Food Shelf or it will be Mac & Cheese for Thanksgiving dinner in the union member's tents.

If I remember right, the number of union members voting on the last contract offer was something like 40% less that the number of those that originally voted. A very large percent of the 40% are former union members that crossed the picket line and went back to work.

You could very well be right. I had heard that there were a number of people that crossed the picket lines, but I never heard any numbers until now.
