Nah. I work outside--not inside. I would never take a job where you have to be inside all day long.

I'm also glad that our company doesn't deliver to auto plants all that much compared to when I used to work for tool and die places where they were our customers, and you had to deal with those idiots several times a week.

When times were slow and they had to layoff those auto workers, they would be on the news crying their eyes out. I would watch, laugh, and yell at my television set "GOOD FOR YOU, YOU WORTHLESS MOTHER......" I can't tell you how many times I had to work late because of those good for nothing union workers.

I could usually get loaded in about a half-hour. When I got to some of these auto plants, I would be there for three or four hours trying to get unloaded. UAW workers are useless, absolutely useless.

My My My, getting a little highbrow on your box truck brethren, eh?
Can't think outside of the box I see.
My question to you was, if government would simply charge more for the services they provide, so as to generate a profit, would that satisfy you?
Think about it while you're watching Fox News this morning.
woof
The only time I watch Fox is for the Bill O' show. That's about it.

I never said I was dissatisfied with government services. I was only pointing out that there is a difference between profit services and government services; the difference between marketable services and non-marketable services. You seem to think they are all the same.

I don't expect government to make a profit. If they are making some sort of profit and taxing me, then I'm being overtaxed.

And conversely, if they aren't making a profit, then you are not being overtaxed.

Wasn't that fun?

one thing about it if enough employees would be allowed quit financially supporting the unions that supports that behavior I will bet the union's attitude would definitely change protecting Worthless F??cks like that because all those Worthless F??cks do is drag everyone else that acts like an adult & cares down with them.

Indy,I know all of that, of course.
Now substitute the word "government", and maybe these dolts on here will figure out why government spending on things like, water ans sewer systems,sanitation services, street repairs, construction and plowing, courts and courthouses, health departments, zoning offices, police, fire, and emergency services, public schools, dog catchers (don't listen Duke), jails, prisons, and detention centers, representative governmental offices, etc, and on, and on...is included in the GDP.

government sector jobs are considered Public service jobs that provide service to the public and cost the public, and dont produce items that have use & monetary value like a vehicle which has both and this is where the government makes their money to pay for those government public service jobs through taxes.

What is a public service job?

Any job which supplies a 'service' to the general public. Example: Police - firefighter - sanitation worker - etc - etc.

Unions aren't going anywhere. The minute unions lose their clout (if that were to happen) management will immediately begin to take advantage of labor again. They are too greedy not to. When that happens, unions will come back as strong as ever. If management would voluntarily deal with its labor in good faith, labor wouldn't need to organize.

I'd say a stunning loss of clout was exhibited by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers at Hostess when they found themselves unemployed right before Christmas.

I am not saying unions are going away unless the Federal Government repeals the Wagner or the National Labor Relations Act but attitudes within the Unions will change which do in RTW states I have worked in both RTW & Non and RTW states the union works harder to maintain dues because they know the employee has the final decision to pay due or not, not the Union. I will tell you right now 70 years ago the unions would have not tolerated that behavior of smoking pot & drinking while during their workshift.

The National Labor Relations Act, NLRA, or Wagner Act

Whether that was a loss of clout or not remains to be seen. They chose to not to be management's bitch. There comes a point when getting a new job is better than staying at the lousy job you have.

Then instead of striking or closing down the company, that's what they should have done. They should have found a better job and quit.

The union didn't close the company. The company chose not to live up to its contract with the employees and closed. Only the company can close the company.

What was their choice? With unions, it's difficult if not impossible to find replacements for union people. Unions will harass and even threaten non-union replacement workers. How was Hostess supposed to continue business with no workers?

By honoring its contract. By not paying out outrageous bonuses.

Hostess was a victim of vulture capitalists, not unions. But Rush will never say that so you won't learn that.

We're not talking about who was right and who was wrong, we were talking about who actually closed Hostess, and it was the unions. If Hostess was a non-union operation, they would be open today in spite of what their CEO's made. Workers would have walked off the job, and Hostess would just hire other people to do the work.

That is your assumption. You assume Hostess would have found people like you who would work for them for any pay and under any conditions. You assume that Hostess wanted to stay open. Hostess was being operated by vulture capitalist firms, you know like Bain, whose only goal is to suck as much money out of a company as they can.
