Hey josey want to talk about greed, how about your union president giving himself an $80k raise after losing 18,500 jobs. Talk about greed.

If you call giving concessions to the tune of $260 a week over the last few years "union greed" then you must be on some form of crack!

Wanting more and going on strike is one thing. But when you`ve given up $260 a week already & now they want even steeper pay cuts, that doesn`t even include the loss of our pensions, the loss of overtime pay, the loss of a guaranteed 40 hour work week & then double the cost of our H&W pay out of our checks. All of that on top of the last concessions we gave the last time around.

How much more can people give back before they can`t pay their basic bills anymore?

Living paycheck to paycheck each week and now we`d have to give back even more? Why don`t you go to work tomorrow Brian & tell your boss you`ll give back $260 each week out of your paycheck?

Try it. When we made an average of around $35,000 a year before the paycuts. Think you can live with that?

The thing that baffles me is the joy you seem to have in 18,500 people out of work now. How is it you seem to relish in that fact? Because you really believe it was "self inflicted"?

Can you go to work tomorrow and accept all of those cuts and still make your mortgage payment and pay your basic bills?

Does it really make you happy that union members & their families have no jobs now? It sure seems that way.

By the looks of your comment josey, the real ignorance is all yours. Get a life and learn the truth of how unions and Gov't are playing you for the complete fool you are
