Not to Beat a Dead Inflatable Rat or Anything...

The good news is that the Union leaders facilitating the transit strike in NYC may be on their way to jail...

Here's the thing --and if this doesn't shame anyone in a labor union I guess nothing will:
The Union says they will end the strike if Pensions aren't moved to 62 year old -they want them at 55. 55? Didn't FDR make SS available the year after the life expectancy at the time?
Also they want an 8% raise, BUT they will take a 6% raise if DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS ARE CUT BY 26%. Yes, you read that right...and if you aren't shaking your head in disgust your didn't fully grasp it. Do you know how hard it is to get in trouble when your part of a group that gets paid to barley work at the lowest possible standards? So now shop/business are forced to go Union and then let the Union destroy them? Workers can screw up but can't be called on it? Arggghhhh! Why am I surprised?!

And in other Union A-hole news...
"Statement on Union Leader Santa and Elf Demonstration at Florida Wal-Mart Store
Union Leader Santa and Elf Demonstration at Florida Wal-Mart Store
“Unfortunately, this union leader campaign stunt went too far,” said Bob McAdam, vice president for corporate communications at Wal-Mart. “Union demonstrators dressed as Santa and his elves entered a Wal-Mart and began presenting some of the children in the store with wrapped boxes. The children became excited and started saying things like, ‘Let me have the big one.’ But when the children opened the boxes, they found that the boxes were empty. Needless to say, the children were upset and some began crying.
“When asked to leave, the demonstrators became argumentative. They claimed that they had permission from the Wal-Mart home office to demonstrate, but, in fact, they did not. Soon the demonstrators began pushing and shoving Wal-Mart associates. The Broward County Sheriff’s office was alerted and deputies arrested two demonstrators for battery and gave fifteen other demonstrators trespassing warnings.
“This just goes to show that the union leadership will stop at nothing – even upsetting children with fake Christmas gifts and resorting to physical confrontation with our associates. We have tolerated numerous union demonstrations and disruptions in our stores, but we cannot tolerate attacks that become physical. We ask for the union leadership to publicly apologize to our associates, these children, their parents and the customers who were in our store and pledge that any future demonstrations will be peaceful and non-violent."
