It's Over !

850 Union idiots pissed away their jobs and the company announced it is moving the factory to Oklahoma.
not sure wherethat leaves the salaried people. Are we staying in town or moving to Oklahoma also.
I'm okay ( or should I say Okie) with moving to Oklahoma I just don't want to lose my house in the process.
The rollercoaster ride continues.
Things to do list : Prep house to sell. I think I'll paint some today.

Sad, sad day here in town. If I were the union negoiators I would buy a new pair of running shoes because you have 850 angry union members you misrepresented.
If one of these guys shows up dead, there would alot of suspects and I'll bet no witnesses.

I'm okay, we'll get through this. I think the union members anger will be directed to their leadership and not the company so I am feeling safer.

Have a great day everybody.

I'm so sorry to hear that!

But isn't is frustrating how much damage unions do?!? They have so outlived their usefulness. The things they were needed for a century ago are now illegal. There are laws protecting workers rights.

My late husband belonged to the Maritime Union. He was a tugboat pilot. The union's greed incited the workers to go on strike and they were on strike for 18 months. We lost everything. The companies won and the union was broken back to where it was 50 years ago, no power, no money, nothing. It was a total, tragic waste.

Phew!!! I'll get off my soapbox now. lol You can see it is a sore subject for me.

At any rate, I wish you much luck.

Thanks Marie. I really am frustrated. The economy is so bad and people are never happy with what they have. I would love to be able to work full time.
