    What a great day to drive down to the Union hall to vote on a new contract.
    The owners sold the redi mix company I have worked at for the past 21 years to a national conglomerate.
    Shop steward and Teamster business agent said they shook every nickel they could out of them.:prancing:

    I have not had to deal with that, but I have friends and relatives that have gone through the process. And having to go on strike, too.

    People combining forces to gain a fair wage is communism.

    Also Muslim, and gay.

    Listen, the folks on the top of the economic scale really do love all all of the poor folks and wish nothing but the best for 'em.

    exactly.

    Why are people who don't get it so brainwashed?

    I will never understand a person who works at Target and cheers tax breaks that will NEVER improve their lives in any way?

    I paid $1500 for a colonoscopy. That breaks down to $500 per polyp removed.

    I didn't even have to cough up a co-pay for mine, but that may be because of how preventive care is covered in Mass.

    If they didn't find anything they would've classified it as preventative care and 100% covered, but because they removed 3 polyps it's classified as a procedure and they stick it up my ass so to speak.

    Healthcare providers, and insurance companies used to be all about giving the best coverage possible at the cheapest rate.
