yeah, i got this '72 dodge dart i drive for my job So figuratively Vz wants the union emplyees to drive economical cars, but the union says we've got a fleet of 1972 dodge darts that get anywhere from 6 to 14 miles per gallon. Why should we have to drive a new ford fusion? Vz, you got enough money to fill the tanks of the dodge darts, and we've got enough employees to drive them and waste gas. Hell, we've event got folks who will reline the drum brake shoes...why do we need to drive these for fusions? Furthermore, Vz intends to drive out Americas middle class (which apparently is comprised of 45,000 union employyes from cwa and ibew). What are we to do??? We'll have no more dodge darts and no more middle class. The unions should take the deal of emploment and having a job and those folks who drive the new ford fusions into the ground should get merited based on their actions and if need be, let go just like any other employee who doesn't perform with good intent. $40 -$75k +OT??? There are plenty of folks out there who'd gladly pay for health insurance and get raises based on performance, along with getting a 401k match at that salary. Tell your union leaders that you want the deal and you'd have a job that you have to work at.
