do you even read your own links? The article talks about people wanting change. Trump is changing things and your party is lost in the wind.
Lots has changed since that election. Tax cuts, manufacturing jobs growth, etc.
try to play along.

I was Union for 36 years, I voted Democrap twice for the POTUS.  Never ever again and I know lots of Union people that can't support that platform, not into bestiality and Planned Parenthood

But do you still do the door to door political pamphlet distribution as required by the union? Or do you just dump them in a trashcan, and hit the nearest bar like the rest of the union "workers"? Sorry, I deer hunt with a bunch of former IBEW guys, and they absolutely hate Democrats, and the unions that support them. On the other hand, they get their retirement checks from 3 different union entities. Wonder how much money the DNC skimmed off of that retirement fund?

Turtle, do you have any thoughts for people that work in right to work states? Some people go through their whole adult lives making a good living based on their ability to provide an employer a high level skill. They don't need a union boss. They have a set of skills that employers are willing to pay a premium for. They don't need a union, more likely, they are being courted by head hunters that are shopping their skills to other potential employers. What F'd up world of doom and misery do you live in?

So, now, the unions and business owners are each others' darlings. Not sure what to make of this, but I guess that's called desperation. Reminds of those mines that gave the workers housing and sold food out of the company store but never paid them enough to get out of debt for those things. People of course had to 'love' their boss.

Yep, sucking up to the corporate patron, drumpf. Hoping he hands out crumbs.


Just another unhinged incoherent post from the man hater Twerp.
I sont even care to know what you were trying to say

Republicans love the working man.  They want him to keep more of his check.  So he can raise his family, feed them, get them good educations.   

That is how it has been in America for many years.

This won't be the first or last time that we have discussed this issue.  I've never had a door to door requirement, must be an IBEW thang

I walked informational pickets vs. GTE and Verizon.  I walked an active picket with UPS workers during their 1997 strike, in solidarity.  My retirement checks don't come from the Union, the pension I grew had nothing to do with my Union, not IBEW but CWA.  "The Union" is what individuals make it.  I was somewhat pleased when "the union" supported Bernie Sanders over the bloody pantsuit in 2016, I still voted for Drumpf like your IBEW fellow hunters. 

Maybe they "hate" their former union out of support for you.  If they hated during their working years then they could have declined membership and opted out of their Union benefits provided by their contract.  If they are ex-management or ex-craft says a lot where their hate came from.  It's a tough world for unions in a right-to-work state, I reserved my "hate" for the scabs that benefited from my contract that didn't pay dues while I did.  I pretty much loved my free medical insurance for my first 25 years and my 5 weeks vacation + 7 personal days [after 25 years] that my union and I bargained for.  I enjoyed the .88 on the dollar company match 401K. The days of unions may indeed be done, some unions decided to kill the goose that layed the golden eggs and some unions elected the wrong people at the top, they did it to themselves.

Oh, they hated the union, but loved the benefits for sure. They hated having to go door to door handing out voters guides. They hated not being able to get rid of bad employees, having a contract define and micro manage the scope of work on a project. They hated having a required number of higher paid journeyman to apprentices, that put their ability to compete for contracts at a disadvantage.

Whats a union boss? Well, it's not a shop steward, or a representative or president of your local. Lets say a union boss would be somewhere between Hoffa, and Obama.

Sounds like IBEW ain't what they project to the public.  Never heard any of that with CWA except getting rid of bad employees, I stepped down from leadership roles for that reason.  I didn't want to be the safety net for slugs, I hate slugs

Saw this article this morning. Seattle is Cali North. Kids, being used by the dewfreshkazoo's of this country. Disgusting.




"Two elementary school students kneeled on the field during the pregame national anthem ceremony at a Seattle Mariners game."

Well the left is telling us we need to take guidance from the HS chirren so why not elementary kids as well. Makes perfect sense. Young children are emotional and incapabale of rational thought, often throwing tantrums to try and get their way.
Oh wait. The left has been taking guidance from elementary age kids

The seahawks were miserable with this crap.  They finally wised up and let the main purveyors.  When I seen the run over and sit down, just because a vet was getting recognized for valor, it was obvious what was going on.  Despite dewfreshplooeey claims otherwise, it is 100% about pissing on our Army, and our nation.  

I hope those loser players fully sh1ttank their new teams.

Why ignore what they say the reason is and choose to take your slant? How could you possibly know?
