That is while the company is in business...
Thing is, not all unions fight hard for their members. Even our union rep one time our union contract was up for renewal, admitted that we were not being well fought for by our union itself. He admitted we were THE lowest paid union members he ever had to deal with.
.
Most of the time we in the factory ended up counting ourselves lucky if we got a ten cent raise per year due to the contracts we had.
.
The only reason our factory even had a union was due to the fact that both Miller & Anheuser-Busch would only deal with unionized companies to make their factory made advertising. Be it pool lamps, decorations for the taps, on the wall lamps, etc....
.
So that union membership supposedly getting you more money is false in alot of cases. In the case of where I worked,'greasing' the supervisor's palm worked better for some than others to get higher raises.

The key here is "among full-time wage and salary workers". Of the new jobs added to the economy in the last year, 75% of them have been part-time. How many of those new part-time jobs are replacing full-time wage and salary UNION workers?

Unions provide the working man a voice in EVERYTHING the company does & a hedge against profiteering & abuses by bad management, like these greedy Mittiots...

Translation: Unions make sure to drive the businesses into the ground since they have zero interest in the future of the companies.

<quoted text>What a matter old man, you can't come up with any better than calling your mom's favorite word for you?? LMAO Give up little old man, you are unable to keep up. Keep blasing your horn for those union bosses who suck your money up and live the good life while you wallow next to your computer pretending your a big time investor ($150,000 LMAO) Yep You are going to die, and none too soon!!!!!!
Troll does not realize that I'm just doing what my parents had me doing when I wanted to take night classes in various subjects. I had to pay for them myself. Even in high school I had to pay for my own evening classes I took.
,
And then the troll claims by that slur that I supposedly had sex with my mom. I'm not a motherhumping lesbian like the troll is.
.
Plus, my daughter has NOT been in school since it let out back in early June of this year. And she does not go back till Sept. And when she does, go back. Like the previous years, I will walk her to her bus stop and wait with her till the bus comes to pick her up. And be at the bus stop at least ten to fifteen minutes before the bus is scheduled to drop her off after school.
.
As well as the other things the troll has accused me of being, As in a time traveler. It forgets that I had been living here in my condo YEARS before my parents passed on. Like how could they have been paying for my place while they were still alive? They could not have been able to while they were alive.
.
And as for the name of the royal kid. At least I had the tradition correct. Just didn't have the proper list of names Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, House of Windsor and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at the time of the speculation were planning on naming the child.

Just 10% of American Adults believe the current minimum wage is a wage someone can live on, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Seventy-seven percent (77%) say the minimum wage is not enough to live on. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.
Maybe you shouldn't count on a minimum wage job to live on. Look for a better job.
