A "good woman"? Do you know one? I do. She is bright, slender and attractive and can actually discuss things that haven't been featured on Dr. Phil. Because she interacts with adults on a daily basis.
Apparently you need Dr. Phil...

Most men complain their wives sit at home on their asses watching tv, ignoring their kids and not doing dishes or laundry or anything. Homegrl, I applaud you if you're one if the very few that do all that and more. A lot of real women like to be independent and work and help support too instead of just being lazy and sitting at home or getting your nails did.

<quoted text>sounded to nice?? Well ok you guys really don't think very highly of women . U think just bc we don't get a pay check we sit home and eat Bon bons all day? Are u flippin kidding me? i do more in my morning than u probably do all week. My sister in law has her masters degree her husband works at waupaca she's a stay home mom. We aren't moms bcz were stupid were moms because we are smart and know that our family will b better off if we can stay home and take care of them. How many times have u been divorced ? Me never. Of my professional mom friends ( 20 off the top of my head ) all happily married . Sure some women want to work good for them more power to them. Some women have to work. A lot of them would rather stay home with their kids. Personally I don't believe either of you are married if you are she isn't happy. Your to disrespectful to women . But whatever. FYI I work all day and take breaks from whatever I'm doing to go on the Internet just like u men. But if u noticed I only came into topix 3 days ago to see when the funeral wAs . How long u fellas been coming here? True I have been checking this site but really it's sort of like watching a train wreck, just staring at the carnage guys. Rofl
Some men have a chip on their shoulder. They fail to recognize what she does--taking her for granted.

Are you resulting in preying on the grieving now? You know the guy was not employed by the company you are trying to squeeze union dues from?? Bottom feeder!

Homegrl, I was just trying to get you riled up. Sorry, but I was bored and that was the highlight of my evening. Yeah..I know. I'm sure you're a good stay at home mom. Sorry I was being a jackass. <3

You are a huge idiot. Chinese workers make 25 CENTS an hour. They can work weeks without ever getting a day off.

Although wages , benefits, work conditions, and work laws wouldn't exist without the importance of unions...actually unions are now destroying the work force, they drive up prices and protect un productive workers and allow for a less productive work force. I worked in a union plant for 12 years and definitely made good money but had many poor, lazy coworkers who abuse their employers basically because the union allows them to.. truth is every worker no matter where you work should be thankfull for unions and what they have done for the working class...but the truth is they are now to powerful and are slowly desroying themselves by driving companies to a non union country or causing plants to close because they cannot stay as profitable due to the ever rising costs due to unionization

Unions have far less power now than they've had in a generation due to nothing more than lower union density - they've gone from more than 30% of the workforce in the 1960's down to just above 10% Today. Along with numbers comes power, and they no longer wield the same amount of influence in the workplace or politically. The decrease in numbers isn't a result of people turning away from unions but instead is a result of far fewer manufacturing jobs - which has been a union stronghold for many years. Unionized or not - it's practically impossible to compete with the wages that are prevalent in many developing 3rd world nations. The percentage of non-union facilities off-shoring operations is actually greater than those at union operations. As far as productivity, many studies have proven that a unionized workforce is 13-15% MORE PRODUCTIVE than their like-industry non-union counterparts. There's lazy people in EVERY workplace - not just where there's unions, so who protects them there??

So... Unions numbers are continuing to shrink due to inflated manufacturing costs in the US, which is created by inflated wages. Union jobs are 15% more productive compared to Merit Shop, but Union projects consistently use 20%+ more workers per capital project (compare GM to Toyota if you need).

Anyhow, I choose to be recognized for my work ethic, not my position on the bench. I've hired many "union" workers who were loosing everything due to lack of work, most all are more than happy to come to work, pay their bill and provide for their family... Oh, and most all make $25+ an hour, depends on experience. Everyone of them can earn increases based upon their merit.

There is a place for union work... 10%. There is a place for merit shop... 90%.
Seems it has sorted it's self out.

Unfortunately, "merit" increases more times than not are directly related to one's ability to create a vacuum in an onion sack or their ability to do "favors" for the boss. One of the main reasons people turned to unions and a system based on seniority is that they realized that, way too often, raises and promotions were a direct result of things totally unrelated to job performance.

All of the statements just made are pure speculation and opinion there is no merit to any of them. Sad.

"Merit" itself is a very subjective, speculative word defined by each user and each "boss". That's why a merit-based system typically is mostly only popular with those who get to define its use.:)

<quoted text>waupaca is a nice place to work . My husband has been there for many many years. It sucks that mr felty passed away the whole plant and their spouses morn with his family. But it is after all a factory and factories can have accidents. Waupaca teaches safety and to say they don't follow them is a lie. They do . To single out Bryan hammock by name is pretty crappy too. What , did he fire u? Waupaca is a good company ran by good people who all want to return to their family's at the end of the day This shouldn't be about union or not union. It should b about mr felty and support for his family.
. I totally agree with u!!!
