Lamont Phillips, an oven operator and the president of the local union.

I'm sure the majority non union employees are just as thrilled as this idiot. /s

Oh Lamont, you big baby. If it wasn’t important to you you could have gone and done something else.

Yet somehow I doubt that’s your true feelings.

” So, I’m like, ‘OK. Close it down.’” “

= So I’m like, close it down dude.
I mean it’s not like I’ll starve or
anything, man. Anyway, I’ve been
meaning to take time off, but
now I’ll get unemployment,
maybe some welfare, food
stamps. Oh no, wait, already
got the stamps, dude.

Anyway, this is cool man.
Work is a real drag. It’s
about time I got what I
deserve. Screw those
rich bastard making more
than me, right?

The union rep will move on to another union job and the workers will get 96 weeks of unemployment.

In exchange for the pay cut, the union was to be given 25% ownership in the company.

This Lamont idiot was probably an affirmative action hire.

When Obama first got elected it took the LATimes nearly six months to get to this propaganda level with their failed attempt at peddling “Funemployment”...

Guess this dip hasn’t looked for other work recently. Wait until he applies for other jobs and the interviewer asks him how the common task of being an “oven operator” qualifies him for employment.

Apparently the government edge-you-kay-shun system in NC doesn’t teach that an 8% pay cut is better than a 100% pay cut.

How many people would have been thankful for those jobs and these fools act like they were put into slavery or something!

Cool. I’m with them: I don’t care, either. I don’t buy any of their products and never have. There are 2 retail outlets w/in 50 miles of me. But my state voted for Ds and so did the neighboring state w/an outlet.

Glad they achieved this victory. I wish them every similar success in the future.

“We’re not making a whole lot of money out here and then we got to take a pay cut like that.

But a 50% pay cut on unemployment is worth it because Lamont and his ilk can sit on their asses and don't have to listen to the bosses tell him what will happen because of the union strike,

In the meantime, those who needed this job are now scared to death about losing everything. But, Lamont doesn't have to hear it anymore.

“oven operator”

From Simplyhired.com:

Every Bakery Oven Operator job on the web. 85 jobs available.

Good luck to the idiot in landing one of 85 positions available in the nation, all presumably at lower pay that he was making at union wages.
