Thanks, it is obvious with your experience/stable you're no "Average Joe" but I wouldn't be surprised if your opinion on this was "middle of the road".

My squeeze and I own a Tanning and Nail salon. We pay our girls well over minimum and gave them a bonus at christmas. Good help is hard to find, our ace in the hole against corporate chains is our customer service and personal attention. So far we've done pretty well with it.

Why are you so down on unions? couldn't get in one? I've been a Journyman Union Operating Engineer for 27 years, have had steady employment, good pay and benifits and a pension. I put in at least 8 hours a day and am well payed for it.



Don't like it? maybe you'd feel better if you eat my sh!t, phuckin' scab.

So you get to wear the blue and white pinstripe overalls with the puffy hat?

I believe some of the US auto issues center around lack of a competitive product in terms of quality. Sure, price is an issue and direct labor costs are a great portion of that. But there are markets where value is perceived as what is purchased with a dollar. US auto makers for too long focused on total cost, not total quality. Customers recognized that and went elsewhere.

But the joint venture plants - Mazda, Mitsubishi, Toyota are union and sell very competitively. Labor cost is not everything, and cost of production don't always have much to do with retail price.
