  •  Yeah, (10+ / 0-)

    my union, the Machinist's Union (I love saying that!  I'm in a union!) sent out email about this crap.  I don't think it'll happen, but it's scary to think what could happen if these assholes get back into power.

    If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No need to be a damn fool about it. - W.C. Fields

    •  I had the ability to take comp time (8+ / 0-)

      instead of pay, but my UNION contract said it was MY choice on whether to take pay or comp time and also MY choice on when to take it.  If I didn't use the time within 6 months it was paid out on the next check after the comp time "expired".

      That was REAL CHOICE and not the employer manipulated illusion of choice.  

      PS - My dad (RIP) was not only a member of the Machinists Union in his place of employment, but was also a union steward and committeeman.  He taught me a whole lot.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
