United Auto Workers Union Rejected By Volkswagen Workers At Tennessee Plant

United Auto Workers Union Rejected By Volkswagen Workers At Tennessee Plant

Commented Feb 15, 2014 at 08:21:26 in Business

“The workers at VW are happy with their jobs and wages. They dont need unions. The company obviously pays fair and keeps their employees happy. Being in a union myself, I am sick of wasting money on some fat cat pieces of crap that do absolutely NOTHING for my rights as a worker. We beg and plead and nothing goes in our favor, but the fees keep going up and up. If more employers only realized that their employees make them their business and paid fairly, we could abolish the unions. It would save me 200.00 a month in dues.”

“The Civil War has nothing to do with slavery. Educate yourself. Even the unions know that. I just went to a Labor History meeting at my union (waste of my time dealing with unions) and even I was surprised they knew the facts. What they teach in school is why everybody is so screwed up.”

“Michigan is now a Right to Work State. That means people that dont want to be union dont have to be, and people that want to be can be. The unions arent doing anything but crying about how their fat cat cant keep collecting. Ohio is working on becoming right to work.. My union is fighting it. Frankly, I dont care to be paying 2% of my pay every check to the union and getting nothing in return. Dont tell me I get higher wages either.. What I make it still in the range of what I made while non union.”

“What states would those be? Ohio and Michigan have the same gun laws for the most part, with the exception of being able to carry in schools in Michigan. Indiana and Illinois also have pretty strict gun laws. Lakes and Canada border the rest of Michigan. Are they getting boats from other states too?”

“Companies can still choose not to hire someone who fails a drug test and is positive for THC. This question was a major discussion topic with the new laws in Colorado. Also remember, marijuana is still illegal at a federal level, regardless of being legal in Colorado.”

“If you are denying that living wages are regional you are are sadly mistaken. Why does it cost so much to live in California as a whole, or New York, but it is cheaper to live somewhere like Michigan or Ohio?”

“And if you dont believe that when people make more they spend more, you lack the fundamentals of reality. Businesses are going to raise the cost of their products if they know their customer base can afford it. Higher profits. As for slave wage.. What is the point of MINIMUM WAGE? It is a MINIMUM price point to start out, and you work your way up. McDonalds isnt a career path for a mom with 5 kids and a house.”

“It was 1.10 an hour when you began working. 5.25 an hour when I began working. I know for a FACT that the cost of products has gone up between those two periods alone. Raising the minimum wage a few cents wont cause any repercussions.. However, doubling it to prices around 15.00 an hour will most definitely have an affect. Supply meets demand. If people have the money for the goods, the prices will go up and people will pay for them.”

“Of course the cost of things has gone up but to say that raising the minimum wage is not a good idea as foolish.”

“When people make more money, products can cost more money, so people spend more money. Dont believe it? Look at places like Florida that are cheaper to live, and people make less. Compare that to California where people make more money and the cost of living is much much higher.”

HollyHuffaboo on Dec 24, 2013 at 15:55:35

“Minimum wage in my part of CA is 8-something. Average rent in a decent neighborhood for a 1 bedroom apartment runs about 1,400.

So, yeah..you won't see many people able to live on minimum wage here without having roommates, opting to not have a car, etc.

It's not a wage meant for anyone to pay all their bills with to be sure.”

“trying to blame the cost of living in florida on minimum wage

is downright laughable”

UnitedStatesOfTara on Dec 24, 2013 at 12:31:05

“You seriously believe that the only thing keeping prices "low" is a slave wage? Conversely, you must also believe that inflation is caused by higher wages. If so, you lack the fundamentals of economics. Businesses charge the maximum they can- period. They charge what they can get away with. Wages have nothing to do with this.”

ruthtruth on Dec 24, 2013 at 12:15:54

“I know all about Florida as I was born there and raising minimum wage will not cause everything to go up but it will help people get off of food stamps and other programs. You do realize that minimum wage has been raised before, right? When I started working it was $1.10 an hour.”

“For those people who are complaining about the high cost.. How is 4 parks for 95 dollars a high cost? You can also get the 2 day parkhopper pass as well. I lived in Orlando and had season passes to all of the parks and could go whenever I wanted to, and took advantage of it. One ticket to Cedar Point Ohio is about 60.00 without a discount. If you want the fast lane pass, that alone is 95.00 plus the park admission. Compare other park prices that are not related to Disney.”

“DISNEY IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE BUT WITH TAX ITS $101.18 FOR 1 DAY NOT ALL 4 PARKS.I KNOW I HAVE FRIENDS THAT WORK THERE.”

fap1947 on Dec 14, 2013 at 10:31:14

“It is per day for one park. The park hoppers cost more. Plus, you need a full day to fully enjoy one park. Then if you want to go to two, you have the commute time between parks. You pay extra for "express passes" at Orlando parks too. so, what is with the Apples and Oranges comparison. $60 vs $95 period. When the kids were young they love Disneyland. They still do. But now that they are older, they would rather go to Ceder Point then Disney World. When we go to Orlando, they choose Universal over Disney World.”

“They arent negotiating anything. They are in fact ignoring and arguing everything. Dems want all or nothing and somehow the media is spinning it to the Reps want all or nothing. Plain and simple. The Republicans are trying to alleviate the problems by sending funding bills and the Democrats are rejecting every attempt.. and then they are shutting down PUBLIC ROADS that go in front of monuments (See Mt. Rushmore), closing open air monuments and memorials that have no hours of service, no employees, and no entrance/exits. That costs more in manpower to close and enforce. Why are they doing it? To be big meanies and try to blame it on the other party.”

“I support the truckers. As someone who works on tractor trailers.. I see a huge problem with the over regulation of these drivers. A truck has a MINIMUM of 24 lights on it. One light being out... Just one, results in a very large fine and at least 8 CSA points. How many cars are out there with missing lights without any second look? Freight prices are high, regulations are high, pay is low. And companies are being hit harder by more and more regulations, resulting in more money being put into new trucks (Californias maximum 5 year rule) and less money into the drivers.”
