what’s a “fair share”?

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.

doesn’t Jobs give millions to obama in campaign $$$??

Actually he hasn't donated to Obama or anyone, not even the DNC, since 2006.

Must see them as a poor investment. /s

There are always other reasons why you can fire him

Firing = big fines. Unionizing = Big Problems.

Likely would be cheaper for Apple to close the store and lay off everyone there. I love how liberals rarely see "unintended consequences".

An anti-union forum? I don't think so.

No, we are.

Unions had their place in the 1930's.

Now they are just Democrat / Communist front organizations.

I thought FReepers were educated. You people obviously do not understand how our legal system is tilted totally in favor of unions. It ties the hands of capitalists and, in some cases, even silencing them. If you fire someone who is trying to form a union, it is default judgement against you. Union installed. No vote. No questions asked. Please THINK before posting.

Excellent points.

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.

Depends on the state moron.

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.
