"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

OWO....your beef should be with OSHA...they are giving your argument for the benefits of unions a healthy run for their money.

Wow...a real live astronaut! Gosh I have got so many questions like...do you feel the gravity of your profession? Does a*****make a sound in space? Did you say there really are klingon's near the planet of Uranus? Gee there are really so many things to ask.

OWO..the point is...why does a shop have to be anything but a shop? One thing that I have noticed is that employers who should own the job do not create the requirement to join...the union does. If said employee does not join the union, then the union is happy to require them to work for less. It is in most labor contracts. The union members utilize past performance of owners and management but do not attempt to reimburse for their sacrifices but require it of employers in their argument to justify the value of a union. Somehow that doesn't jive with reasoned logic.

Good morning Stillhere. OWO is the Ying to my Yang. As a proton seeks an electron, having the polar opposites allow for a mostly interesting conversation. To achieve stability the proton seeks a neutron. In cases where one doesn't exit, the proton will try to convert a neutron to a proton, convert a proton into a neutron or by ejecting an alpha particle from the nucleus.

As Baron Von Frankenstein shouted "It's Alive!!!" Morning OWO. The world has been waiting on you. World it's o.k. to start spinning now.

A learned opinion is the best thanks. A democracy will also fail...but yet you folks keep trying..can't quite give up the name of failure.

It may help if you post the correct number..just call 1-800-COMRADE. The receptionist will forward your call when not on strike.

it appears that the dust-up from the marketing arm of Perdue may have been based on the the USDA allowing chicken to be shipped from domestic growers to Chinese processing plants and back to the U.S. for distribution. also some reports indicate that the cost savings anticipated by the substantial wage difference was not enough to sustain the endeavor for a few takers.

Speaking of freezer. The new ad out by Perdue guarantees traceable USA raised poultry. I have not researched how many pounds we allow from outside the country...namely China.

Do union chickens know when they are on the cluck or off the cluck?

Nascarnut...i believe three would comprise what's commonly called a trio. It's only a crowd when the unfortunate third is not desired or the third is unidentifiable.

OWO...no i do not know you except for how you represent yourself on here. i would imagine that i would enjoy sharing a meal with you at some point...my treat of course. i buy quite a few girl scout cookies and have a standing order with the local scouts...i never quibble about the cost and am generous with their fund raising. BTW...i don't even to bother asking them if their cookies are...hold your breath...union-made.

Stillhere...have you seen those girls!!! I don't even ask for change back when I buy those darn thin mints! They must be union girls. They look a little husky to me. Some even could use a shave..geesh.
