If unions didn't go by seniority and just protect the slothful, lazy workers, then maybe I'd be a little supportive. But all they want is MONEY FOR NUTHIN'

A protest for "good jobs"?

Whatever happened to a good resume and excellent references? What am I thinking! We're talking about union gigs!

NOW the Torrance politicians are looking at the Gateway area as part of Torrance instead of just Torrance PO? Quick, if you live in Torrance PO, copy this article and rush to the TUSD and enroll your kids..... we need your tax monies!!

You want a good job? Start your own business. NOBODY is "entitled" to a good job. NOBODY owes anybody a good job. Be responsible for yourself and stop whining.

Longshormen should make what teachers make. Teachers should make what Longshormen make. It's a shame that's not the case. With all due respect to longshormen, they are manual laborers that extort money. Period.

The article says nothing about Torrance politicans. The DB still does not know the boundries of the South Bay Cities. Wall Mart is either in the gateway or the unicorporated area.

To the posters here who are anti-union, particularly anti-longshoremen: why would you not want your neighbors to have solid, well-paying jobs? What sense does that make?

Hey - Daily Breeze! There is no Wal-Mart in Torrance. The US Postal Service persists in including part of the City of Los Angeles in the Torrance 90501 zip code, but you should know that. You have fact checkers, yes?

No S sherlock, i thikn that is the point. im not for or against unions for this argument, but one thing is certain: barriers to entry are really (artificially) high, and you just reinforced their point, dummy.

laughable, bro. i respect taht with a good number of jobs out there, there is a lingering chance of dying, but that chance is so small you probably have better odds at getting eaten by a shark.

the actual labor that goes behind the UTR, lashing, etc, is just funny. you can effectively do your job as a longie while high as hell, like most of you do. not saying thats bad... i would do it too. just don't ocme on here saying you guys are busting your asses.

Soon the port will be built in Mexico and the cost of our imported goods will finally come down. I'm tired of overpaying so idiots in San Pedro can spend half their day drinking at the bar. If we're talking LAX hotel unions, you'll get sympathy from me. At least they work hard for a living.

Quit helping out other family members and SHARE THE WEALTH WITH OTHER PEOPLE..
WITH YOUR DOCK UNION JOBS...THAT LOTTERY WAS B.S...!!
TOO MANY PEOPLE IN THE SAME FAMILY GOT IN DURING THAT LAST LOTTERY...
WHAT A LAUGH.....GEE, LOOK WE ALL GOT PICKED!!! HOW RIGGED WAS THAT?
WHO IS THIS RALLY FOR? THE LONGSHOREMAN, WHO WANT MORE MONEY..
WHY DON'T YOU DRUG TEST THE ENTIRE DOCK..RANDOMLY...AND FIND OUT
HOW STONED THEY REALLY ARE!!
or make them take a written test...ha....they couldn't.......you let all the riff raff back
at the Casual Hall as well.....the PMA spent a ton of money to get a better quality of casual worker and you end up losing in a lawsuit...bringing back the garbage to the docks....
what a joke!! you won't let the people back in as with a complaint.......for the reinstatement
process......who came up with the hair brain idea......you quick out a person with 800 hours..
and you rehire a person who never worked more than one or two days down there..
where is your sense of loyalty.....not to the person working two years down there....
but to the person who didn't try and work down there....at all......but you let them have
2 to 3 chances.....if they didn't go down after the first time or second time..why would they
go a third? use your brain...oh, you don't have one!!!
REINSTATE THE REAL CASUALS...WHO DID WORK....NOT BECAUSE THEY GOT HURT
AND YOU ARE AFRAID OF A LAWSUIT..WHEN IN FACT, THEY DIDN'T SUE YOU AT ALL....
WHERE IS YOUR LOYALTY OR BROTHERHOOD?
YET, YOU GO TO LUNCH BEFORE LRC. WITH THE PMA.....ENEMIES? RIGHT!!

YOU ARE SO RIGHT ON....
I LOVE YOUR COMMENTS....
THE UNIONS WANT MORE MONEY...BUT THEY DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE OR LET ANYONE ELSE IN..UNLESS ITS FAMILY..ESPECIALLY THE LONGSHOREMAN...YOU NEED TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE FELONY AND BE AN EX ADDICT BEFORE YOU CAN BE A DOCK BOSS...THE OLD RULE....
BUT THEY GET RID OF THE GOOD AND DECENT WORKERS..
AND KEEP THE GARBAGE...THEY CAN'T READ, OR WRITE..BUT LIVE WITH MOMMY!!
AMEN FOR YOUR COMMENTS..LOVE YA...

DRUG TEST THE ENTIRE DOCK FORCE....SERIOUSLY
YOU WOULD FIND WHO THE REAL WORKERS ARE..
LET EVERYONE HAVE A CHANCE DOWN THERE.
FOR THE ONES WHO SAY, SOME WOULDN'T LAST A DAY.
WHAT ABOUT YOU OVERPAID LOSERS WHO ARE OVERWEIGHT,
OVER FED..AND LIVE AT HOME....AND CAN BARELY GET IN AND OUT OF YOUR CARS, YET YOU SAY, NOBODY WOULD LAST A DAY, YEAH, BECAUSE OF SHEER BOREDOM!
YOU STAND THERE...SIGNALING...DRIVING AND PARKING ALL DAY..OR DRIVE AROUND FINDING LOST CANS...
LET'S SEE WHAT ELSE...THE LASHERS WORK HARD..
BUT NOT EVERYONE
THE CLERKS BASIC JOB IS TO STAND AND CIRCLE THE CANS AS THEY COME ON OR OFF THE SHIP, WHICH IS ALREADY DONE BY THE DOCK BOSS, IF HE IS PAYING ATTENTION, AND THE KEY CLERK DRIVING AROUND IN THEIR TRUCKS, THREE PEOPLE TO MAKE SURE THOSE CANS ALL MATCH, THAT IS HOW SCREWED UP EVERYONE IS!! DANGEROUS, YEAH, YOU DON'T WEAR HARD HATS AS MUCH AS YOU SHOULD, YOU ARE TOO COOL, OR SAFETY HARNESSES WHEN YOU GO ALOFT, THAT IS WHY SOME FALL OUT OF THE BASKET, AND YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION WHEN SIGNALING AND THE CRANE DRIVERS GRAB THE CANS AND YANK THEM UP QUICK, THE CONE FOLKS ARE NOT MAKING SURE EVERYONE IS UNLATCHED, SO THE UTR DRIVER DOESN'T GET LIFTED!! SO WHEN YOU ARE STANDING TALKING SMACK, TO YOUR BUDDY, THINK ABOUT THE SAFETY FACTOR, AND YOU BUDDIES ON THE SHIP DRINKING WHILE THEY LASH, HOPING ONE OF THEM DOESN'T GET HURT, OR THAT THEY LASH RIGHT UNDER THE HOOK, WHEN THEY ARE SUPPOSSED TO BE FIVE CANS BACK, WHICH THEY NEVER ARE!!
WHO WORKS SAFE? ONLY WHEN SOMEONE DIES, DO THEY SLOW DOWN FOR A DAY, THE UTR DRIVERS DON'T WORK SAFE OR DRIVE 10 MPH, THEY DRIVE CRAZY SOMETIMES HITTING 35 MPH..ENDANGERING THE LIFES OF OTHER FOLKS DOWN THERE!! WHETHER ITS AN EMPTY CAN OR A FULL CAN, IT TAKES SOME TIME TO COME TO A COMPLETE STOP IN YOUR RIG!!
ALL THE BOSS WANTS OR THE PRESSURE IS, IS HOW MANY CANS CAN HE TAKE OFF THE SHIP? DURING HIS SHIFT, NOT WORK SAFE!! THAT IS A BUNCH OF CR...P!
JUST REMEMBER THE JOBS YOU HAD BEFORE YOU BECAME LONGIES, OR DID YOU EVEN HAVE THEM?
YOU SHOULD ALL BE SUCKING EACH OTHER FOR SUCH GOOD PAY FOR SIGNALING, AND YOU DON'T DO IT FOR 8 HOURS EITHER, THE OLD TIMERS, WHINE WHEN THEY CAN'T LEAVE AFTER AN HOUR AND GET PAID FOR 8, THE CASUALS SWITCH HIT IT FOR 4 HOURS AND THEN CONES FOR 4, BUT THE LONGTIMERS YOU MAYBE SIGNAL FOR 4 THAT IS INCLUDING CONES, OR YOU GET YOUR PARTNER AND FLIP THE COIN WHO STAYS AND WHO GOES AND YOU KNOW THIS!
YOU OVERSPENT WITH THE HOMES, THE BIG CARS AND YOUR INFLATED EGOS! I HAVE YET THE MEET A RICH LOCAL 13!!

HEY TERMINAL RAIDER, OR WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELF,
WHAT STANDING DOING CONES, OR SIGNALING, OR DRIVING AND PARKING CHASSIS OR BOMB CARTS ALL DAY, WHILE YOU EAT SUNFLOWER SEEDS AND SPIT! NOW THAT IS SHEAR EXHAUSTION!! OR YOU CIRCLE JERK THE NUMBERS ON THE PAPER, AS THE CANS GO ON OR OFF THE SHIPS, THE BASIC CLERK JOB! YEAH, LET EVERYONE HAVE THAT CHANCE, YOU SPOILED FOOL! WHY DON'T YOU GO TRY AND TEACH A CLASSROOM FULL OF KIDS, USING YOUR EXPENSIVE EDUCATION AND TESTING FEES, JUST TO BE ABLE TO TEACH YOUR KIDS, THE LONGSHOREMAN'S KIDS!! YOU ALL SHOULD GO BACK TO THE DAYS OF THROWING BANANNAS, WHEN THEY DIDN'T MAKE AS MUCH, BUT WORKED TWICE AS HARD!!
THE WOMEN WOULD BE GONE AND YOU UNION WHINERS, WHO ARE HIGH OR STONED, WOULD BE OUT OF BREATH!!
DON'T COME DOWN ON THOSE THINKING THEY COULDN'T HACK IT..YOU COULDN'T HACK COLLEGE EITHER! YOU PROBABLY BARELY GOT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL!!
