The tell that union busting isn’t about helping workers: companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year to prevent workers unionizing, when they could easily convert that expenditure to benefits/wage increases for those very workers.

They’d rather spend tons of money to deny union presence than to spend on worker benefits.

That’s exactly why unions are needed in so many industries and workplaces, particularly in retail/service like at Amazon and other big businesses with huge profit centers.

‘Fox & Friends’ Now Pushing Food Buckets Like Common Jim Bakkers

The gang over at “Fox & Friends” has finally crossed the inevitable threshold into the not-especially-wide world of survivalist food buckets. Following in the footsteps of such luminaries as Alex Jones and Jim Bakker, they are now pushing people to buy giant buckets of freeze-dried food in preparation for the end times. Well, not the end times, exactly, but rather for all the natural disasters suddenly happening for absolutely no reason they can think of, except maybe God is mad at gay men or feminists (definitely not climate change).

Or for when there is no food on any shelves anywhere because Joe Biden screwed up the supply chain by inventing COVID-19 and not forcing people to work for low wages or (ideally) no money at all.

Definitely not for a pandemic though. Those aren’t real.

Remember: when investors combine their assets to form a corporation to improve their bargaining position and thus do business more efficiently, that is seen as the very heart and soul of Capitalism.

But when workers combine their bargaining power to obtain better wages, benefits and working conditions, that is seen as the very anathema and enemy of Capitalism.

Because individuals and families with limited incomes and resources should be expected to negotiate one-on-one with multi-billion-dollar international corporations for terms of employment, insurance coverage and financial services.

It’s not worth anything when it comes to 2024, but it does tell us that attempted coups are not a deal breaker for Republican voters, either because they’re fascists, or because propagandists have parted them from reality completely. I encounter people daily who at least claim that the coups were a “Democrat hoax.”

re: #1 lawhawk

I wonder if it’s possible or if anyone has figured out the numbers on this for companies like Walmart and Amazon or most other large retailers. And then look at companies like Costco who actually raised their starting salary to 17 dollars an hour. I have a feeling it would just be a lot less expensive to just be a decent employer. You don’t have huge turnover, retraining or burned out employees, don’t have to deal with lawsuits and paying even larger groups of attorneys than you already have to as a company. I have to wonder about the same logic applied to what they do to fight taxes, labor laws and fair wages.

I hate lobbyists, that whole system is a huge part of why we’re here. And yet it’s rarely addressed, reported on and nothing is done about it.

So I check the news and you can imagine my (total lack of) surprise that the one charge that most of the experts declared was a slam-dunk in the Rittenhouse case…is the charge the judge just decided (over the prosecutor’s objection) doesn’t apply to this case and so has dismissed as the defense’s insistence.

re: #9 A Mom Anon

Costco also employs outside vendors, particularly do to the food sample vending. They don’t pay as much as inside workers, but I think that’s a very small percentage of the overall Costco workforce.

You’re right that being a good employer has longer term benefits by creating a stable workforce willing to do more for the business to be successful. But most businesses are run by bean counters who care only about shareholder value and return profits to shareholders - not the workers who make product.

And this is why there’s a need for labor unions. If companies did the right thing when no one was watching (aka as integrity)thereby would be no need for all that. I think this is also another reason the right doesn’t like history. We’ve got this ridiculous backstory of companies being these benevolent things that pay us for the right to eat, have a roof and maybe halfway decent medical care. Any look at America during the beginning of the industrial revolution and the beginning of railroads shows not a lot has changed in how the rich view the poor and working class. They weren’t called robber barons for nothing. We don’t learn from history because we have a problem with kids learning history. It’s stupid
and shortsighted.

“I have big problems with this statute, I have made no bones about that from the beginning,” Schroeder said Monday, but determined that the gun’s barrel was not shorter than the legal limit.

Prosecutors also agreed that the barrel was a legal length.

I continue to be saddened by the whole mess. I was annoyed at times by both of the parties involved, sure, but that just kind of goes with the territory here sometimes. And while it’s not for me or anyone else here to tell him what to feel or what to do, seems to me maybe Joe’s overreacting at this point a little? Teleskiguy has apologized for what was obviously a very low point for him, and we know he’s been through a lot this last year. I’ve seen plenty of lizards (present company included) trying to tell Joe he’s still welcome here and this was more about Teleskiguy than it was ever about him.

Hopefully at some point Joe will realize that and know he’s still welcome back here. I’ll miss his stories and his LA deli food.

Did other people join in the bullying, or was it one troubled user claiming he had the support of others in private messages when he attacked Joe as part of his flounce?
I’d bailed from the thread when seeing that nasty post, because the alternative was coming in hot, and ripping into the flouncer who had already lost his mind, which didn’t seem helpful at the time.

Basically, the judge just carved out an exception in the state law to argue that rifles of “lawful” length are totally legal for 17 year olds to carry around in the state of WI period. He’s not even leaning on the defense’s argument that Rittenhouse was “hunting” that night, he’s just saying “If the barrel is long enough, it’s totally legal.”

During the months of pre-trial motions and rulings, as well as the weeks of trial proceedings, the defense only now realizes that there’s a loophole to the law that they didn’t even bother to try to argue before today? They tried to get the charge tossed just days before the trial began and even then their entire argument had nothing to do with barrel length and everything to do with the “hunting” carve-out in state law.

I have really been rooting for ‘ski to make it, after all his troubles. This is just really sad all around.

Joe’s posting about dirt naps and all really offended me, but I just scrolled past them. K’s gloom and doom affected me, but again, I just scrolled past. And tried to upding them when they posted something I agreed with, which happened often.

If I updinged something the other night that I should not have, in retrospect, I apologize, and will go back and see if I can find it and fix it.

re: #9 A Mom Anon

I wonder if it’s possible or if anyone has figured out the numbers on this for companies like Walmart and Amazon or most other large retailers. And then look at companies like Costco who actually raised their starting salary to 17 dollars an hour. I have a feeling it would just be a lot less expensive to just be a decent employer. You don’t have huge turnover, retraining or burned out employees, don’t have to deal with lawsuits and paying even larger groups of attorneys than you already have to as a company. I have to wonder about the same logic applied to what they do to fight taxes, labor laws and fair wages.

I hate lobbyists, that whole system is a huge part of why we’re here. And yet it’s rarely addressed, reported on and nothing is done about it.

You might find some items of interest in the Bloomberg article linked in the tweet. It’s another example of treating employees well (even if it was unions that forced that on you) reduces business risks.
