Hello.
Signed up as a member after bookmarking this site year ago or so. I guess the recent thread about introducing yourself worked.

There has been a few threads I would have liked to reply too but the main reason I've watched this site is for the occasional actual informational talk.

There are some smart mother f@#$rs that post here.

Myself I am a skilled tradesman, sheet metal worker. I build things from flat sheets of metal Take a flat sheet of metal and turn it into a 90 degree round elbow isn't something everybody can do.

I enjoy learning about things here you dont hear on MSM... but most of all I enjoy reading threads involving topics I know nothing about. That may sound odd but I feel it really makes your (my) brain work.

So in closing I'm just a normal guy with too much time on his hands sometimes and want to say HI and thanks for being here

Thanks for the welcomes...

And to Nat, I am in the sheet metal workers union.

So I hope this site isnt filled with the same craiglist unioun bashers lol. but on that note I am posting at 3 pm because we went on strike today.

The biggest issue is the contractors want to switch our health care plan to obamacare.

hopefully it doesnt drag out

not sure how you put the response you reply to into the cool box so I improvised....

Im guessing most "union haters" have never been a union member, and associate all unions with the UAW

In the Building Trades Union there is no seniority, no job security.... bust your ass or get laid off

We negotiate for a good wage in exchange for a good days work. 27.10 an hour on my check. by no means a get rich quick scheme but a way better deal than min. wage.

welcome! to do the cool box thingy, reply by hitting the "quote" button on the top right of the post you want to reply to, them when the reply window opens up just highlight the text you want to delete, and delete it! leave the bits in the square brackets and after a few experiments you will get the hang of it,,, its a bit of a rite of passage i guess, but i'm a luddite and i picked it all up in the end


see you around!

Hmm that's interesting, my dad is actually the union rep. He says that you may be striking over a contractor but Obama care is a law that will be starting in 2014.

Welcome to a forbidden place in my mind, only ignorance exists there, but my eyes cannot deny what they see. Been here too long, don't end up like me. Peace, Xenongod
