It's hard to have a flame war when you don't know who you're yellin' at.

No, it's not. If the post is sensible, it's you or Seru or Sean or Browning or pdad or sarnali or...



If it's idiotic, well...

40% more than other manufacturing workers in PA?



Apparently the Union hasn't realized that it's the factory that has designed and marketed this amazingly successful product.



It's like the waitress wanting more dough because she works at a restaurant with a great chef.

Default HD workes need to take field

I agree 40% more is quite a difference. No need to offshore I think some unemployed UAM and IAM (aerospace) workers would love to get those jobs These HD worker folks need to get out more. Car companies and Aerospace companies are shutting down entire factories that made parts and subassemblies. Because they can outsource it far cheaper than pay the union wage. All that is done here is final assembly.... I think the average aerospace worker has a higher and more diverse skill set. as well .Heck Harley should put in an add in the Seattle times..Lots of folks that used to work in factories here working at Walmart. Hardly anyone has totally company paid health care anymore or guranteed raises for the next 3 years. And the trend is away from pensions to larger contributions to 401K it's better in the long term for the company i.e. financial obligations in bad times are far less.

Looks like you sucked in an idiot already. The cowardly type, too.

Oh God I just got a call from your wife...a GPTB intervention is needed. A team of Gen Xs and Ys is on its way to get you out of that cult led by the Evil Weasels (Buz, lr, seru,Sean)

Well, there is a bit of truth in the idea that the workers should share in the profits when times are good. Unfortunately this is a one way street . They'll never agree to take pay cuts when times go sour.



They could try a profit sharing plan. As if the union would ever go along with it.

I see valid positions on both sides of this argument. I don't think taking those jobs "off-shore" is a viable option for "Harley". I'm curious as to what the "average" Harley guy thinks about this.
