Harley-Davidson removes radios, music from York factory floor

Feb 25, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Customer Interaction Solutions

The music is gone at Harley-Davidson. Last week, hundreds of the iconic motorcycle manufacturer's employees learned through a memo that their radios and music being piped onto the factory floor would be kaput by Wednesday -- part of a continuous effort to improve safety.

So far Harley has taken our flex time(important for people with kids) forced us to take vacation in blocks, took breaks away for 10 hour days, changed overtime policy, screwed us on insurance, taken away company installed radios and reduced sick days. Wouldn't be suprised if they made us eat lunch at our work station or started disipline steps for smiling or talking to the co worker next to you during working hours. And don't forget our wage freeze. I used to love my job and was proud to be part of the manufacturing process. Now, when I show up in the morning for work, I hope there is a smoking hole where the building used to be. Keep taking your employees for granted Mr. Wandell, and it will bite you in the ass! All you have done is hire over paid babysitters(supervisors) and some how convinced management that unhappy miserable employees put out a quality product. Your employees are your best asset, or worst enemy. Continue down this road and you might not like what you have to explain to the shareholders. No, that will never happen. You will just lie your way out of it and jump into another company in "distress". JACKASS!!

Ends the ban on running existing workers through E-Verify - Under current federal law, employers are forbidden from running current employees through E-Verify, but HR 2164 lifts that ban. Beginning 30 days after enactment, employers may choose voluntarily to run all current employees through E-Verify.
Mandates running all existing federal, state and local government workers through E-Verify- While private employers aren't required to check current employees, public employers must check all employees within 6 months of enactment. Americans' tax dollars will no longer be used directly to employ illegal aliens.
Requires private employers with federal and/or state contracts to check employees through E-Verify- Within 6 months of enactment, private employers must run their current employees performing work under a federal or state contract through E-Verify. Americans' tax dollars will no longer be used indirectly to employ illegal aliens.
Targets illegal aliens using fake Social Security numbers - The Social Security Administration will be required to send "no-match" letters to employers when an employee is using a Social Security number that either doesn't exist or doesn't match the name or other identifying information of the employee. Employers are required to run these employees through E-Verify and fire them if they cannot correct the mismatch and receive a confirmation through the system.
Targets visa overstayers and deported aliens with valid Social Security Numbers- The bill requires the Social Security Administration to lock the Social Security numbers issued to individuals with expired visas or who have been deported. If an illegal alien with a valid, but locked, Social Security number tries to get a job, he or she will receive a nonconfirmation.
Identifies and fires identity thieves - The bill requires the Social Security Administration to contact owners of Social Security numbers that are receiving contributions from multiple employers. The notification instructs recipients to contact the Social Security fraud hotline if they believe their number is being used fraudulently (i.e., if they are not working for all the employers listed in the notification). Once the rightful owner is identified and confirmed, the Social Security Administration must then lock the Social Security number and contact the employers of the other workers using the stolen number. The employers are required to run the suspect employees through E-Verify, and since the Social Security number is locked, they will receive a nonconfirmation and will have to be fired by the employer. The bill also allows all Americans the option of voluntarily locking their own Social Security number.

This place has really gone down hill over the years, I think that it's because they started hiring ethnic people. I miss the good ole days when York, City was run by all whites. The Charlie Robertson times....those were the days....
