WHAT THE UNITED STATES NEEDS IS A POWERFUL LABOR ORGAINZATION AND A POWERFUL COMMUNIST PARTY TO SET THE COUNTRY ON THE RIGHT PATH FOR THE FUTURE AND SCRAP THE 19TH CENTURY BUSINESS THINKING IN PLACE THERE NOW.

Yeeee-ha! Those former employees of Crystal Sugar used to make 20% more than the regional average.
Then their union told them the company was bluffing when told that the offer was not going to increase, and they should not accept a 15% pay raise.
Brilliant. Just F---ing brilliant. Merry Christmas to those idiots that used to have good jobs.

your liberal union thugs have destroyed a community, destroyed familes and most of all destroyed America. These people followed the union leadership - just like the liberals are following a muslim socialist, and look what they have to show for it ( NOTHING )!

wake up - there is no free ride.

Correction, the free ride can only go so far before it runs off the tracks. Look at Europe.

It's what happens when labor unions are gone, except successful Germany, where they're strong.

What's Germany's secret? In sharp contrast to the decades of stagnant wages in America, real average hourly pay has risen almost 30 percent there since 1985. Germany has been investing substantially in education and infrastructure.

How did German workers do it? A big part of the story is German labor unions are still powerful enough to insist that German workers get their fair share of the economy's gains.

That's why pay at the top in Germany hasn't risen any faster than pay in the middle. As David Leonhardt reported in the New York Times recently, the top 1 percent of German households earns about 11 percent of all income - a percent that hasn't changed in four decades.

Contrast this with the United States, where the top 1 percent went from getting 9 percent of total income in the late 1970s to more than 20 percent today.

The only way back toward sustained growth and prosperity in the United States is to remake the basic bargain linking pay to productivity. This would give the American middle class the purchasing power they need to keep the economy going.

I have about had my fill for the day, usually don't bother on here on the weekends. It is almost time for the slewche's and Dumbo's daily article drop from the think progress blog and the Huffington post. They should really automate that function.
