so? you believe E Pluribus Unum is a strange concept? It is on our money and the great seal of the United States.

collective bargaining is an application of a deeply rooted American principal.

Then, if you're not self employed, follow Captain Picard's order.

If you're self employed, collective bargaining only has a glimmer of a chance if you've got multiple personality disorder.

I'm in a unique position where my Captain Picard doesn't know what's going on at my station nearly as well as I do, so while I still follow the prime directive (fill CEO's swimming pool with more cash), I suggest my own orders Smile

A few years ago, workers here almost organized and made a new little UAW chapter, but I fear that would have realistically lead to plant closure rather than any benefits from collective bargaining. Instead, we're still around with less people, but still manufacturing unique stuff, and making a profit off of customers in Latin America, Europe, and Russia.

None of this changes the fact that Tom Kasich is a douche, and fucktards all over Ohio voted for him despite his painfully obvious douchilocity.

OK, what if you're self-employed but have a couple of employees?

Opress and use them for all they're worth.

Kill them a hear the lamentations of their women?
