Instead of picketing Caterpillar, they should be protesting outside the White House.

“But if you eliminate the middle class, who is going to buy the goods and services?”

What a civic minded lot - they’re fighting for the “middle class”, how noble of them!

What stupid, shortsighted hypocrites!

Those machinists should ask where the other millions of dollars the SEUI has kept from them.

>> “Solidarity is the golden rule of the labor movement,” she said

Commie bullshit. Go pound sand, she.

That said, I completely support collective bargaining in the private sector. On the other hand, any intimidation and thuggery deserves a severe, legal beatdown.

And only months (year or two?) Obama was touting Catepillar as a model of American Business that would be hiring people - if only his bailout scam were executed.....

We have a Caterpillar plant down here in right to work South Carolina that, if their management has a lick of sense, should be due for expansion;)

boosts the strike fund to more than $90,000

Caterpillar has more than 150,000 employees, and the corrupt union's strike fund is only equal to the annual pay for just one senior machinist? Union leadership must be living in luxury on the massive dues they collect.

The plant manager stood on a soap box and placed his hand above his eyes as he looked southward...... “I think I can see Alabama from here” he was heard to say

Good news! Every penny they spend on these union thugs is one less Democrats can lie about Republicans with.
