You have jobs to offer ??? Funny, it sounds EZ, but why not unionize, keep the job you have, and get a better wage, like you did sparky ?
Poor, little, hypocrite, union worker...
It is not the responsibility of people posting on Topix to supply job offers. People that actually want a better job would have to go out and look for them on their own. Too bad good jobs are scarce in this Obama economy...

Earnings
In 2012, among full-time wage and salary workers, union members had median usual weekly earnings of $943, while those who were not union members had median weekly earnings of $742.
AND YOU GET + BENEFITS ???
LOOKS LIKE - UNIONS YES !!!!
Funny, the idiot above says get a better job, rather than asking for & deserving a raise a raise as a UNION GROUP !!!!
Guy's a union member, but hates competition at the table....
UNIONS are designed to eliminate "competition".

The Machinists Union has negotiated additional layoff benefits for its members, including:
One-on-one access to career counselors and professional resume writers to help them find new jobs;
Six months of medical insurance coverage;
Cash to pay for going back to school to study for new careers, if the laid-off workers choose; and
The right to get on a recall list at Boeing, which puts the laid-off Machinists first in line should the company start hiring in their old job categories.
This PLUS huge pay rates from $11-$42 per hour + benefits !!!
UNION YES !!!
Federal help for Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ laid-off workers
Extended unemployment pay for up to 2˝ years
A 72.5 percent tax credit on health-care insurance premiums
90 percent of travel expenses to a job interview covered up to $1,250
90 percent of relocation expenses for a new job, plus a relocation lump sum up to $1,250
Supplemental pay for workers older than 50 re-employed in a lower-paid job, up to $10,000 over two years
Up to $25,000 training grant toward cost of a college degree
Let's break this down a little:

"among full-time wage and salary workers" - This implies that you are actually employed. However, the cost pressure large union shops put on a business sometimes drives them out of business.

"Machinists Union has negotiated additional layoff benefits "
Perhaps if there wasn't the additional cost involved with a union shop, the business would be better positioned to compete in the marketplace. Thus, eliminating the need to have additional layoff benefits.

"Federal help for Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ laid-off workers"

If that is true, ADD must pay very well.

Thing is, since the troll only gets a nickel per post. If the post is removed. Does the troll have to give back that nickel. Or is the nickel deducted from the troll's pay for it's posts?

Rather pitiful for how many posts the troll has done that have been removed. It should have pointed out to the troll on what mistakes it makes.
