So. we don't need Unions anymore? Bullshit. I'm Union and proud. The only jobsites I've ever worked on have been prevailing wage jobsites. Trickle down doesn't work. Never has, never will. Rich folk easily convert their income to capitol gains with a 5% tax rate. Remember, only little people pay taxes. Sure, these Union workers are greedy. The GM workers were making $35.00 per hour. Terrible isn't it? After all, we had to bail out GM and Chrysler. But don't worry, the bankers and Wall Street executives will still get their $25,000,000 dollars bonuses this year. So while we are up in the UAW workers shit for making 35 bucks an hour, we allow these Wall Street criminals more tax breaks. They lost over $70,000 of my investments a couple of years ago. That was money I saved for my kids collage fund. And these were considered "safe investments.
I'm done ranting now, so go back to your fast food discussion.
Couldn't your kids make a collage out of something less expensive?
Did any bankers lose their homes? No? Really? Did the US government bend over backwards like the well-greased whore that it is and provide TRILLIONS of dollars to bankers to cover their bad bets and toxic paperwork??? Yes, it did!!!
Do you realize that offshoring US jobs has ACCELERATED under Obama?
