    I work in a non union manufacturing plant and I make pretty damn good money for my area and age. I have about the best benefits of any company in our area. Guess what? I don't have to subtract union dues out of my paycheck. More money for me and more money for our company, which makes us more competitive in the market...


    Oh sh1t...gotta go...I hear da boss callin....


    Yessa massa regards,

    your advertisers are spending huge sums of money that could be used to modernize manufacturing processes, production facilities, and fuel innovative research that would result in the U.S. being better able to compete with foreign manufacturers. instead they buy advertising and send REAL jobs overseas.

    i know it's fun to union-bash, but the reality is that worker's wages are a small fraction of the manufacturing industries' costs of operation.

    as a nation, we need to depend less on fossil fuels. we need to expand our nuclear power capabilities and tap the wind, sun, and tides. and we need to do it with american machinery built in America.

    i would love to see you live on minimum wage for 6 months. just you. no dependants. bet you would have a diffrent song to sing then.-Paul
    I'll leave the catchy phrases to thier Advertising Agencies. Our two largest advertisers are the local Chevy store and the Ford Dealer Association.

    Obvious that you know not what you write about!

    P S
    As far as the attack on my chosen profession; I've done very well over the last 30+ years helping buisness create more sales.

    What do you do?

    what do you suppose the radio advertising budget is per year nationwide? LOTSA zeroes behind some kind of a number.

    i told everyone exactly what i do in the thread i started on here a couple months ago. i've been a shipbuilder in one form or another with the same company since 1976. we build nuclear powered warships.-Paul

    Well, if you think products like Ford, AT&T, Apple, are inferior then there is no helping you.

    But then, you do promote socialist ideals here on RTF with you anti-buisness chatter.

    Now you are against advertising, the means in which free enterprise promotes thier products & services.

    Maybe you have been wearing that hard hat too tightly!

    It's hard to compete with a bowl of rice! It use to be a sack of bean and some flour and lard for tortilias, but that not cheap enough anymore.

    I wonder if that non-union worker/republican would except a bowl of rice and a tax cut so that his boss could make more money and pay less tax?
