I went out job hunting today (my day off), and stopped over at Milan. They only want to pay $11.50 an hour! I told that guy he's nuts. And he replied that in today's economy, he could pay whatever he wants, that there's a lot of unemployed drivers out there. I told him that I hope he gets what he pays for.
[/quote]Gee, don't we all love those right to work states. Get paid whatever a company feels like paying out. We all have to help those non-union US Corporate American Companies on the free market some how. $11.50 an hour? So a day's work is worth a pair of Nike gym shoes. Looks like Jose and Hodgie found themselves jobs after all. I wonder how the Con-way drivers would react on working for $11.50 an hour? They can be happy that the union isn't standing in their way on the free market pay scale.
How's your outfit doing these days? In it for the long haul?
[/quote]College is my gig on a voluntary (LOA) leave of absence. Doing case study after case study, knowing how companies are going to take more advantage of their own employees pay checks and force greater responsibilities on others very soon. This all part of of the free market, and to the new Global Economy. Acquiring and owning a CDL isn't going to mean :
: to anybody anymore.
Just remember, all the Yellow Freight Personnel that left or got cut by YRC went to other trucking companies. Without a union standing in their way. They can and will perform a lot easier, the same tactics on the rest of the truck drivers nation wide.
I notice you have a Tea Party sign next to your screen name. Thats good; because, your going to need that sign when Con-way decides to un-Constitutionally (spreads the wealth) when the take 50% of your and everyone else's paycheck too.
Wouldn't that constitute as un-American or does it matter which political party or group performs those actions first?
Like I stated before, "appearing to show up for work at a non-union company is like like appearing for a divorce court without an attorney." Everyone who works for a non-union is entitled to nothing. I guess a company's (given word) is better to have than a contract. Why would a company lie to anyone, especially in these days?
Keep performing that ego of going to work everyday thinking that this is just a job, rather than a career. It makes easier for a company to get rid of people who they don't want, and good luck trying to get a pay raise. Knowing that Jose and Hodgie are about to get their leagal rates as Americans. May want to hold off on asking for that pay raise.
I hope everyone can survive on getting paid $11.50 an hour. What do people think when Obama leagalizes (Amnesty) to all the illeagal foreigners living in this country is going to do to all the jobs in America?
Dividing and conquering the truck drivers is easy. All a company has to do is reward people for snitching and force others to compete against one another--rather than working together--and corporate can reep all the rewards. Thats all that is really happening here.
I wonder if Con-way would have the [email protected]
!!$ to put that in their non-union video? A company will go to the greatest lengths to keep people divided and uneducated as much as a company can get away with.
The question is, would it be un-American when you and others decide to stand up and rise against Con-way and tell them when enough is enough?
Remember, what comes around, goes around. All the truck drivers will get hit with the domino effect nation-wide. So when Con-way decides to re-distribute your cost of living, and the union isn't around, what would be your recover? Like I said, you may want to hold on to that Tea party sign. You and others may need to use it again very soon.
Remember, Hodgie and Jose are waiting to get your truck keys to take over your job. Better decide rather quickly on who is in the right or wrong.
