Posted on 11/17/2012 3:33:13 PM PST by ColdOne
As many as 1000 Service Employees International Union (SEIU) workers at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) are considering going on strike on Thanksgiving eve in what is the busiest travel day of the year.
Andrew Gross-Gaitan, the director of the Southern California Airports Division of SEIU, said the protest would be in response to an LAX contractor that failed to comply with the citys Living Wage Ordinance.

They are SEIU. If they go on strike, nobody will miss ‘em.
Thanks for that. Best laugh I’ve had all day. This should be a sticker.
I’m getting REALLY sick of these union thugs.
Yup. 2 or 3 of them sitting in the door way could stop a mac truck..
as long as they are well fed.. They get hungry and they won’t stay long.
Minimum wage was designed for high school and college kids, so they could have a little extra pocket cash. If these people can't do better than SEIU, well, don't blame anyone else. They voted for the party that dumbed them down.
If they strike and harm the company they work for, fire them all. There are people who have a good education and a normal family out there who'd be willing to take any job in this failing obomaconomy.
Subliminal fun, very diabolical of you. It’s got to be fun when you see it having an effect.
You figure they’re more than a match for a thousand really pissed-off people?
I bet no one shows up for it. They are all too lazy.
So it’s not even a strike.
More like a “demonstration”.
I believe it's double time + holiday pay...
Or another temper tantrum.
So how big of a raise (average) are they demanding in dollar amount?
I don’t think most of the sheeple have it in them anymore.
We still have 26,000,000 out of work right now some Im certain would love a job. Or transfer 1000 non union workers from Hostess
Actually, according to another account ( LAX Airport Workers Are NOT Striking on Thanksgiving Eve. Seriously. It's Gonna Be OK. ) this is about SEIU being upset because 465 workers voted themselves out of the union and as a result according to a former union member: ...he and his co-workers have left the union, he's making two dollars more an hour. He prefers the different insurance too--it's a PPO, as opposed to the HMO with family benefits he had while he was with the union.
Obamaphone voters are not smart enough to figure out WHO is to blame. Nor do they care. They love to get free stuff, and that is what they are motivated to seek. Free stuff.
No leftist is going to change their mind about socialism because their flight is delayed.
They don’t have jobs to schedule around, and the airlines will give them free coffee or something for their troubles.
This is just more revenge on the rich white man, so they will sit back and enjoy it.
Maybe not. But mobs will do things no individual in that mob would do on his own.
Oh, don’t worry your pretty little head about this. I’m certain our _Resident will step up and stop this silliness when he gets wind of it...like 72 hours AFTER it happens.
