  •  This is one reason I have a gripe with the union. (2+ / 0-)

    All this time they should have been bargaining for 6.5 or 6 hour workdays for full time work, beginner vacations of 3-4 weeks a year, and lower cost heath plans for their workers. And where's our 4-day workweek? Who wants to work 5 freaking days out of 7?

    I mean, if a business hires workers 24/7 and you scale back a full workday to 6 hours instead of 8, that means another full crew has to be hired by that employer and more people get a job.

    If we've been underpaid to this degree, at least get us something in return. Maybe if we had more union workers out there, we could get some better working conditions to offset the lack of pay. Or maybe I just expect too much from a union.

    Right now the CEO of McDonald's is paid how much? Versus the crew?
