One more thing. I was an Iron Worker(Rod Buster) here in Atlanta in the late 1990's. Georgia is a "Right to Work" State meaning...it ain't real "Union-Friendly" ok. The Boss man comes in to work pissed cause the Misses didn't give him any pu**y the night before and says "YOU...Hit the bricks",well guess what options YOU got hero??? You'll either (a)Hit the brickbcause you're fired or (b) stay there and the Local Police will show up and DRAG your ass out the gate!!! That's life in a "Right to Work State"<quoted text>
If you have to compete with an illegal immigrant, you are an American loser.
We have and Iron Workers Union here in Atlanta,the Local #387 but the way it's set up sucks ok,I mean ya maybe sent out on one job site for 3 weeks and then BAM...out to another one some 130 miles away the next,it ain't no life man. So I worked for a company called Fayett Steel(Non-Union),well I USED to make decent money as a Rod-Buster,stressin post tension cable,totin and tien f**kin #11 Iron for grey beams,building colloums etc. until the 1996 Olympic Games came here that is. Then with all the "rush" construction and all Contractors got hip to cheap Mexican Labor. Then sure enough Juan brought his cousins and so on and before ya know it man,I was...too f**kin exspensive?? I mean I was paid just under Union Scale but even that was too much. My point is friend,this ain't about just "washin dishes" or..."uttin grass" anymore. The last job I went to as an Iron Worker,I left in a Police car. The contractor told me I was gonna Rod-Bust for 14$ an hour or I could "kick-rocks". I stomped his ass instead and 13 months later when I was released from the Fulton County Work Camp(we still got those here in Georgia)....I joined the Teamsters and I ain't looked back since!
