Only the Officials who run the UNION benefit from it !!!
Why do you think GM went down the crapper ?
The Union negotiated 40 dollar an hour wages for
employees who have no Education to put a door on !
All of the overseas car manufactures only paid 20 dollars
an hour for the employee to put the door on ...... And the overseas
company Sold the cars for less $$$$ as well ......
UNIONS do not allow ant type of MERIT raises or promotions !
All the LAZY s make the same as the good employees,
why should you do a good job if your paid the same.
When promotions are given they go to the most SENIOR , LAZIEST
person , not the best worker !!
NOW, As you review this list and see WHO these SMALL Companies are....LOOK at the SALES....
NOW, ask yourself...HOW on God's green earth is a person making $250,000 annually in a SMALL Business NOW considered wealthy. For all of you OBAMA Fanatics....$250,000 is the cut off he's suggesting....
THESE companies, in BUSINESS are considered SMALL...
THINK...If these companies are considered "Small" and they are in business terms, WHY is Obama suggesting that a person making $250,000 needs to GIVE More? They don't have money to give and keep their companies afloat....
Does this person likely make more than YOU or I, certainly...but that does NOT make them rich...it makes YOU greedy to think you deserve more of their money though
And not one Union Company! Now if we could get rid of the Mafia (Unions) for good!
No need for Unions (today), OCIA (Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs) and State/Federal Minimum Wage Laws, now safeguards the employees against harm. If things start looking like the 1800's and early 1900's, Unions can be reorganized, but for now, all Unions do (today) is protect the rights of the lazy and lowest performing employees in a workforce.
19th Century Unions - Good!
21st Century Unions - Bad!
My wife, who is a Public School Teacher is forced to be a Union Member. She makes the same wage, as a Great Teacher, as the worst 'Uncaring' teacher in the system. What good can come of that? The lazy are rewarded and the hard working are penalized. We should protect the rights of the Hard Working, not the Lazy, who have memorized union bylaws to justify their right to underperform.
Not one Union Shop in the Top 10 list.
Can any Union Supporter explain that?
"Unions keep the best employees from being rewarded, because the slackers get paid the same. Unions are always spending time and money defending lousy the people that just show up for a paycheck. The union officials enjoy the money ,conventions and all the perks of being an official.So if you want a union, be an official it pays well."
Glass ceilings hire inept beings overly rewarded for suspect "talents", because anyone with an actual skill set would whistle blow the scam the second they got on-boarded. Glass ceilings are always spending time and money trying to undermine fairness and protection laws, in between country clubs and Board brainstorming (corruption) meetings. The False Elite enjoy the money, free memberships, travel on private planes, covered-up crimes and all the perks of being an overlord. So if you want to be above the glass, sell your soul and never question the hand of your puppet master- Satan.
It's over a million to open a Buffalo Wild Wings franchise and that doesn't include the real estate. Hardly a small business. Ancestry.com is a virtual nothing but ads... Boston Beer was the first micro brewery and distributes beyond America's borders. Not a small business either.
Can we fire the article writer and get somebody who grasps what a small business is, please?
I can see both points of views on unions. Unions keep employees rights protected so companies cannot "abuse" employees rights and make them work like they have no human rights like people in other countries who work with no human rights at all. Unions keep wages and benefits high for working class citizens of American families struggling to make it in American today. Now, unions are not perfect either. Unions have to realize that the "poor performing" employee needs to be counseled and trained/coached to do better if the employee is performing below the "average" production quota for the rest of the facility, that is if the employee is truley trying their hardest to work and is just not able to keep up with everyone else in the facility. If the employee is just not doing the "average" production quota for the facility because they are too lazy and they know they are "protected" by the union, that employee needs to be walked through the disciplinary process and terminated because that's not what unions are supposed to be about (protecting lazy people). Now unions have to be able to work with company management, because without the company, there are no employees, and the company reserves the right to manage the workforce how the company sees fit for the best results of the shareholders of the company. That's the job of the managers of the company, they report to the shareholders of the company, so they need to do the best job of managing the company or else they aren't going to get any investors in the company and then there won't be a company and then there won't be any employees. So, the bottom line is, both sides need to work together so that the workers can make a decent living with decent benefits, and the company can still make the shareholders happy at the same time. Unfortunately for many Americans, most manufacturing left America when business leaders decided that they wanted the Asian market and most of the manufacturing jobs left to China and other countries, leaving Americans with no manufacturing jobs. China was admitted to the World Trade Organization in 2001, and a few years later all the jobs left. Now, most jobs you have to enter as a temporary worker making a little over minimum wage and you have to work like a "borrowed mule" and you get no full-time job or benefits and companies want you to work harder and faster than ever before. The older generation has sold out the younger generation. The good paying jobs that once existed for Americans no longer exist. That's the truth. Until the middle and lower class citizens of America stand up against it, it's going to continue to exist that way too.
It's amazing to see people stabbing each other in the back because they belong to a union. when the Mitt romney's of the world are laughing all the way to the bank.This is'nt about unions it"s about greed.In defense of union's one only has to look at the railroads.The railroads are making more money than the have in years. Nearly every non management worker on the railroad belongs to a union.It is so easy to get suspended or fired outright that many railroaders have job insurance.The union can represent a worker but cannot prevent him from being disciplined.

China still calls the shots on commodities, but there's a small sign of change.
