They shouldn't be Union jobs anyway, Union jobs are destroying this countries ability to employ Americans.
The problem with Unions is they limit Americans from getting these jobs. Why should I pay someone so that I can work? That doesn't sound like
America, that sounds like communism to me.
You're a boldfaced liar and I'm here to tell it like it is.
Yep, I'm a UNION worker, and have been since 1998. As an Electrician - somebody who's TRADE is MORE hazardous than that of a Police Officer's -
I've worked both sides of the fence, originally starting my skilled training in the non union sector making $21.00 an hour by the time I topped out
as a Journeyman. On that side of the fence I was the one having to 'negotiate' employment terms with no arbitration, legal representation, or
guarantees related to keeping an employer honest when it came to keeping work hours worked to pay scale level compensation
acurrate, retirement pension acrual and annuity plans available (let alone reported on and monitred by third party trustees), QUALITY OF LIFE health
insurance, a SET STANDARD for exactly what my job desciption is as an Inside Journyman Wireman, and exactly what tools I'll need and responsibly
provide to perform my duties.
That meant that if the employer felt like short changing my compensation they could do so with nothing to stop them. If they felt like I didn't mater
enough to go ahead and lower any insurance standards - even without leting me know in advance - they could do so with nothing to stop them. If they
felt like hiring substandard, skilless 'workers' at a lower rate of pay (and no health insurance) and lay me off while representing to thier client
thier workforce is top of the line, trained professionls they could do so with nothing to stop them. If they demanded me to work weekends and/ or
holidays without justifiable terms for compesational increases given to provide the worker a fair labor standard they could do so unchecked, with
nothing for the worker to use to demand fair compensation for an increased work load. If the employer demanded I provide additional, more expensive
tools and equipment (items already pre negotiated in cost within the contract beween them ad thier clients) to do my job, I'd be forced to do so to
keep my job. If the employer bids a job 50+ miles away from my home, I'd be forced to use my own vehicle (yet again ANOTHER dollar put into the
employer's pocket that came out of mine) to get to thier jobsite and transport thier tools and materials with, without any just comensation.
This list of employer EXPLOITATION against an UNREPRESENTED worker will fill 3 pages of this thread. But as the OP clearly states, because they're
not using Americans, these SAME ANTI AMERICAN, ANTI UNION SLAVE MASTERS have found a redimade whipping boy down in Mexico. But it doesn't stop with
They've INCREASED the number of H1-A and H1-B work visa's available to migrant workers BY ONE MILLION MORE. That's ONE MILLION MORE UNREPRESENTED
WHIPPING BOYS ALLOWED TO ENTER INTO AND WORK IN AMERICA...!!
I've been unemployed for almost a year. I usually make $80,000 a year. Last year I made $12,000. A Mexican is now doing the yob I used to do! (no
mispelled wording here!)
EVERYWHERE I LOOK I see a Mexican working - I'm not being racist, IT'S A HARD COLD FACT.
America has been caught, gutted, fillayed, and marketed by our own 'repesentatives'. That's why I'm not employed. If I didn't have another avenue
to make money to feed my family (mining), then you would be, by staring into the muzzle of my gun while doing so...
Remember this... I'm just one smart American with skills, intelligence, and options. There exists ten thousand Americans other than me who dont have
any of those things, but they do have a gun... I PROMISE you that you're more likely now than ever before to face off with the business end of a
American's gun because of what the monkeys in office have done to destroy this country.
UNIONS are all American, guarantee a higher standard of living, job security, and make for healthier, wealthier families.
UNIONS ARE OPEN TO
EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN AND THEY STRONGLY ADVOCATE SOLIDARITY OF THE AMERICAN WORKER ~AGAINST~ EMPLOYER EXPLOITATION AND ~FOR~ A STRONGER, WORKING
Anyone who says differently are LYING...
