Put the kid on straight commission.
Our retirement system contributions and benefits are equitable to the private sector.
As a gubmint’ union, your union is also part of Odumbo’s waiver program, yes?
I hope making $14 an hour gives the employee incentive to better himself and to move into a higher income bracket.
Max, you and I arrived here at FR at about the same time, we have had numerous post exchanges in the past, most pleasent; you’re trying to start a fight and I won’t be part of it.
Actually he hasn't donated to Obama or anyone, not even the DNC, since 2006.
Must see them as a poor investment. /s

Firing = big fines. Unionizing = Big Problems.

Now they are just Democrat / Communist front organizations.
We should fire this man, the one who is attempting to form a union. Then, the supervisor should go over to his house and bang his daughter.
It DOES depend on the state moron.
I am Georgia's State Moron, and I say it's okay to fire him.
After all, it depends on me -- the State Moron.
