I FUC##ING HATE UNIONS! $98k in one year...ONE FRIKKIN YEAR for a BUS DRIVER. there is NOTHING you can tell me, NOTHING, that excuses this. I was internally ranting about this last week when it first posted in the DDN, but this shite is ridonkulous...12 sick days, bankable up to 160 at a time, up to 6 wks paid vaca (long service on that one I'll admit), 8 holidays paid AND guaranteed birthday off (or holiday pay)
UNIONS HAVE NO PLACE HERE! A strong government would have had solutions mapped out in order to preserve us without granting enough power to insure the lazy will out, tenure making it impossible to rid ourselves of anything but the criminal, and planned obsolescence becoming the earmark of US auto industry for so long that we STILL suffer from a 70's-80's stigma well into the 21st century...SHI#
We gripe bitch an whine at our CEO criminality, our corporate irresponsibility and all white collar crime, while we throw taxpayer money after programs policies and dead political concepts 40-50-and 60 years after they have soured. Maybe if we stopped relying on protection for our own shortfalls, we wouldn't sweat the sweatshops anymore, we'd actually fething WORK for a living..
DAMMIT, lazy fugging country we have become....'oh gawds, I might lose half my retirement that is 4x what a soldier that went overseas would earn...let's go on strike guys!' (NOT bothering to note the reprecussions of unrestricted greed on our market and how it will bear out)...
I lay the fault for our current financial crisis squarely on one group's shoulders, the common greedy FUC# that cannot see past the heaping pile of 'greedy-pig-fu#k'(Lewis Black quote) food at the end of his spoon! When the common UAW (or other blue collar-making-more-money-than-gawd) factory worker takes stock of the damage his union is doing to the company they've bilked for the last century and actually decides
to give it back, lemme know.....and don't you DARE tell me I haven't worked enough to 'understand their plight'...the army really frikking does more than the rest of us before 8am....6am or what have you.....and I have worked more than ANY of you who may bitc$ or gripe might know....sonuvabit##in idiots in government need to start making PEOPLE take responsibility for the damage THEY'VE created as well.
STOP WHINING, TAKE YOUR CUTS AND STEP UP TO THE FRIKKING PLATE! (and while we're at it, RAISE YOUR OWN G-D KIDS, STOP LAYING THE RESPONSIBILITY AT THE FEET OF THE SCHOOLS/VIDEO GAME MANUFACTURERS...TURN OFF THE TV ON YOUR OWN AND LET THE SCHOOLS ACTUALLY PUNISH YOUR KIDS!) RANT OFF
