Two years. That's how long it took them to widen a mile long stretch of road near my house. Fucking bastards.

I think they are in year number 4 by my house. To add a lane of freeway to about a 2 mile stretch. I realize that is a lot of work because they are actually building new road, but 4 years? Fucking state sponsered laziness. I worked for a private construction firm and if they took that long on that project they would never get a job again. But the road crews work for the state and don't have to worry about time so they take as long as they want. I always drive by and see 1 guy working and 3 supervising. Fucking retards.

Granted, in my case they had to fill in part of a wetland to do it, and that takes time. But I don't see why they had to chew up the old road, then do that.

I hate the fucking union.

Union workers are dumb fucks that can pay someone so they cannot be fired for being a piece of shit employee.

They get paid to picket non union workers at there job sites. That is a straight up bitch move. Crying because someone out bid you? straight bitch move.

Having 4 guys to opperate 1 forklift = lazy fucks, and a waist of money.

I have never been happy with 1 union worker I have hired. (electrician)

They take way to many breaks, want way to much money, take way to much time to finish anything.

How many union guys does it take to change a light bulb? All jokes aside it really does take 3. 1 to change and 2 to watch him do it. Its pathetic.

Unions were needed many years ago, but today its where all the piece of shit workers go when they get fired from real jobs.

Unions made sense in the beginning, when they were groups of SKILLED workers. A bunch of blacksmiths or something can get together and make demands, because if they stop blacksmithing, there's no one else who can do it. The fact that they were skilled is what made it work. If all the people with a particular skill go on strike, then it's for real, and you can just hire a bunch of homeless people to replace them.

And then we got labour laws, so a group of dumbfucks can go on strike. You'd think, when the guy who turns the "stop/slow" sign for $35/hr goes on strike, you could just get a trained monkey to replace him... but no, that would be illegal. The fucking guy who throws garbage into the back of a garbage truck wants a raise a job security, so we have laws to help him get it. Fuck. If you want more money and job security, then do something fucking useful that we couldn't hire a fucking mexican to do for $100/week.

What's really funny is when a union shafts a bunch of its members in a secret deal with the employer. So much for solidarity.

Today in most modern countries the strongest union memberships are typically found in the public service, the closer to the department the stronger. Interesting eh?

i agree that unions have veered off the course..protecting lazy jackasses is an issue. but they also protect good diligent employees like me. keep our paycheques big..and ya c.o.b .there's secret sleazy deals everywhere too.. i guess i'm kinda torn.
10 years ago
agreed that proctecting lazy assheads and secret sleazy deals andcontracts that seem to favour the union are fuckin it all up.
