They may as well strike. Just go ahead and speed up this death spiral and Joe and the commies have put us in! The sooner the SHTF, the sooner we can start to recover!
i am all prepped for the long haul even got 2 of the super mega packs of tp 🖕
I used to know a couple of RR workers (one track maintenance and one who had some sort of job on the actual train). Working on the RR was literally 'the dream job'. These guys were always talking about how the pay/time/ and scheduling could be manipulated to increase a week's pay into a month's pay. One guy would drive 100 miles to get into a RR truck and ride back to within 5 miles of his house @ 30 MPH drawing full pay. Then ride back that 100 miles @ 2x pay because the trip and the work put the crew into OT. One guy would sign up for double shift knowing he'd get 6 hours of sleep just riding down the track in the company vehicle.
IMHO, asking for more when you're already getting TOO MUCH is grounds for a big slap down.
Historically, the unions have always supported the Democratic ticket en masse. If Biden forces it, then basically they get what they voted for.
Just what this country needs- sky high diesel prices emasculating the trucking companies, and a rail strike on top of that. FJB
Just passed house and senate. This will get real interesting the Govt telling them what to do
Remember when the Democrats raised holy he'll when Reagan put the air traffic controllers back to work?
All part of the plan...
I'm with you on that Mike.
This is all a bunch of smoke and mirrors to make Biden look like he will straighten it all out, and for him to look like some kind of hero.
I worked on the railroad for 42 years, and in that time I remember 4 times we went on strike. Each time with in less than 24 hours we were ordered back to work by a federal judge. We were kind of like fireman or police, you have a union but you can’t really strike. And if you were on duty when a strike was called you still had to deliver the train to your destination, you couldn’t just stop the train and walk off. If the judge orders the strike to end the union leaders have to comply or their going to jail, and from what I remember the union leaders aren’t that dedicated.
Their just doing this ahead of the strike to make it look like Biden’s saving the economy. Smoke and mirrors.
