<quoted text> The trouble with unions is they just want pay raises everytime their contracts expires and pretty soon they'll all be making six figures while some of us fixed low incomes are getting left behind and getting stagflated. They just say on their strike signs "On strike" for what? for the heck of it?
Union employees are making 45% more than their conterparts in non-union jobs.

Thus forcing businesses to move overseas to shed themselves of over-priced labor.$40 a hour to put lug nuts on - ridiculous.

obama had nothing to do with the purchase of 10 c-17's by India. Boeing secured that sell. obama called the c-17 a waste when he took office. Which is a lie...

Although I am fully vested I am not old enough to collect. I am currently working full-time and collect no retirement.
Boeing has no plans to stay in Long Beach. The union days are over and the sooner they go the better.
Most people who live in Long Beach don't work in Long Beach. Se need the land so our city officials have another area they can improve and then turn their back on. Like Pine avenue.
Have to disagree with the live and work in Long Beach, did you make that up? The next sentence makes no sense, maybe you shouldn't call yourself an old guy, if you can't retire. Frankly,
I seem to remember from your other posts that you weren't working.
But that goes with all the BS you spout and all the questions you have never answered. I'll wait for the name calling, beginning in 3..2..1..

You are right, Obama had nothing to do with it, but he will try to take the credit. Typical liberal slimy politician.
