Longshoreman don't have good jobs? Firefighters don't have good jobs? A probation officer doesn't have a good job? Successful actors don't have good jobs? Get real!!!!

this walk is a joke. only being done to raise awareness that the longshore contract is up and being negotiated as i type. the people walking (or supposed to be walking) are some of the highest paid in the state and country for what they do. this will definitely not help bring any jobs "back". the jobs that are gone will stay gone. time for some of you to Google the word entrepreneur.

Why aren't they working? Sounds like they just want to hold rallies at Walmarts along the way and shoot off hot air. Labor unions need to disappear. The reason why you work is because you were too dumb to figure out how to make money for yourself and not rely on some corporation to pay your bills.

The reality is that high union wages have driven jobs out of the country that will not come back by demonstrating in the streets. If wages are too high, employers either layoff workers or outsource jobs in order to stay financially solvent. Labor unions are killing the economy with their greed.
