More ranting

OK - you're stuck with more ranting. Get used to it.

I'm sick of union strikes. Absolutely tired it. The first big one to affect me, was the Northwest Airlines strike. Thankfully, the airline had a great contingency plan, and there was almost no disruption on service. But damn it - what a pain in the ass. These guys are fighting for better benefits than I am thankful to get. Join reality people - business are cutting back on benefits, deal with it. The rest of us have to. If you don't want your job, there are plenty of people who are happy to do it. They aren't whiney bastards.

There was a time when unions when unions where needed, when government regulation was not strong enough and management (owners of capital) was taking advantage of the workers. This is no longer the case. The market is now keeping management honest. Guess what union members - you're doing a hell of a lot better than everyone else. Not by a little, but by a lot. So damn it, I want to ride the subway in New York - most of you operating those trains are doing better than I am, and don't work 12 hours a day, travelling every week and busting ass - you're making more money, and have better benefits, so forgive me when I say "Fuck OFF" and get back to work.

If you think you are not making enough money then do what the rest of us do - go to school, bust your ass and get a new job. Stop bitching because you're not a millionare - get going and do something. Don't expect to get paid more for doing the same damn thing. If you worked in corporate America you would be thrilled to get a 2% raise for being a top rated employee. You can start bitching when you're treated wose than Wal-Mart employees (those are some folks who should start a union).
