Today's unions have sooooo much in common with the original 19th century Colorado Mining labor organization and what they had to go through. (snicker)

As long as you know the secret union guy handshake you can try on a loaner.

Well I was in the UFCW when I was a teen and a Teamster when I worked at Costco for a little while as a college boy.



I'm gonna find my old manuals and see if I can re-learn that handshake.

I was in a non-union store approached by UFCW when I was in high school.. I voted for the union but I was on the losing side. The Safeway across the street was union which keep the wage scale up for us but still below the S boys. It was great job for a high school kid I started at min wage but got raises quickly.. At the time, the old-timers did pretty good for being only high school grads. I don't think they do as well now in comparison. Walmart and Kmart stores moved in with grocery depts.. Those stores also took out the local Hardware Stores, Clothing Stores, Drug stores.. Downtown is a shell of its former self. The only businesses left are bars, restaurants, jewelry stores, insurance agents, lawyers etc.

"As far as the 787, what hasn't been mentioned is the role foreign govt. played. "if we don't get a piece of the action (mfg) we ain't buying." Actually I think I did talk about that in another thread. Yes there is a certain amount of what is called offset usually involving state owned airlines (India, China, Russia, etc.) That offset should diminish as more foreign airlines become private owned (by stock holders not governments). Once a airline goes into the private sector cost of the airplane is the major focus. You can't explain all of the outsourcing on offset. Look at the list of suppliers and see if they have state ran airline in their country. You might be surprised to see what you come up with. Its a global economy now and most of us are now competing globally..
