Yeah, I know. I have been reading the attacks and denigration of factory workers for over a decade but I got it wrong.
BTW, I've been blue collar for most of my life. I've only been in a union once. I also notice that your defense of your position is based on your experience with unions. No one ever mentions the millions of us who work in factories but are not union. Our company hasn't given out raises in over 4 years. I work in maintenance and have a pretty decent pay. The production workers get treated like dirt.
But, stick around a while and you'll see what I'm talking about. The attitude that people like me are too stupid, lazy, too low an IQ, etc. just because we work in a factory, will show it's hand here on FR.
BTW, I find it interesting that you are offended at a comment that was NOT directed at you. Why?
Towards the end of my career, I had a slightly dyslexic supervisor (Chemical Engineer) who would surreptitiously slip me reports to check for spelling and grammar errors.
Apparently those nuns with the yardsticks did a better job than the profs. at Penn State. ;)
