After spending a decade in a union.


Do not even try to lecture me.

DON'T.


I'm not lecturing you. All I have said is that I can see why she is speaking to a union about this particular issue.

Get a grip, dude.

Me two.

She is clearly giving them an audience for donations to her slush fund otherwise known as the Clinton Foundation.

The money will obviously be used to give African women high paying jobs.

I'd say she is doing it for votes.

I don't know what that is supposed to mean or how it is productive to this conversation.

Workers don't earn their money, it is a gift to them from their overlords. Thanks Hillary, for reminding me that I've never earned anything. I never built anything.This business? Yea, I didn't build that

Can you post a link/ source that proves this hypothesis??

Otherwise I can't take your word for it.

So are the police.

What do you think that is going to happen to that union support after she rolls out the 'Mothers Movement'.

Stabbing every law enforcement officer in the back across the country?

Just like coal miners unions.

The whole idea that you MUST join a union has always irked me. Of course Hillary is against the freedom to work because she is always opposite of me on every issue.


I enjoyed me union job. Retired after 30 years, at age 53. Enjoy your right to work.

I cannot post a link to prove my personal opinion. You said she is "clearly giving them an audience for donations to her slush fund otherwise known as the Clinton Foundation". I think it's much more likely and more logical to say she is pandering to the union at their convention in order to solidify more union support.

If the mothers go on stage and bash police, she may have some issues, but we will have to wait and see what they do.

I think you may be putting the cart before the horse here.

My husband retired from the Laborers Union Local 238 after 35 yrs at 55. His benefits were deducted weekly from paycheck, always had health insurance. We had to leave Idaho when it became right to work in 80's because he would have lost all benefits and pay cut of $8 per hour.

True. There is no one representing the laborer anymore. We don't have a place at the table like the Chamber of Commerce.

The table being congressional lawmakers.

The labor movement is a relic of a bigone era.

Robots have taken over, and will continue to do so.

Their days are numbered.

Yeah. I remember when main frame computers starting taking over clerical jobs in the 70's. But then it created jobs also, like operators. Businesses at that time trained people off the streets for those jobs. I think it was a tax break for on the job training.

So are the police.

When I was still copping, the Union was mainly for the 'Legal Defense Fund' basically insurance that You wouldn't lose Your house and assets when/if someone sued You and were successful. It should also be noted that at the PD I worked, You didn't have to be a member of the Union and the few guys that weren't got to keep the extra $$$.

When I retired because of a broken back/neck, "Health Insurance" was included until I was dead. My co-pay was $20.00 at the Dr.s office and I had a $10.00 co-pay for the 7 RX meds I was prescribed.
Then some TURD decided that We should have "Affordable Healthcare" so since Feb. 2014 I've had $1207/month taken out of My retirement....

The Waltons of The Walton Cabal must've given pointers on this?? They schedule their employees 32 hrs. a week because anything over 40 hours week = Overtime. This way Walmart™ can have them work 'up to 7 hrs. 'extra' Then this also keeps them from providing "Affordable Healthcare"


Last time I looked the "Union Worker" made up 11% of the workforce? Has it risen?

If I am not mistaken, Arkansas is a right to work state. If it is so bad, how come that did not change under Clinton leadership?
