said by Rob:They are finally getting a taste of what most workers have been having to do for years!!! That should be happy that they have had ALL their benefits paid for that not only includes the employee but their entire family as well. How many companies dod you know of that will pay the full amount for benefits not only for the employee but the whole family? said by hottboiinnc:
It's time for more people to start paying into their own retirement. Don't wanna pay in, then keep working all your life. It's not the company's job to make sure you keep having income after you leave and retire.
And people would have no problem paying into their own retirement if they would receive raises and other adjustments to cost of living on a regular basis, especially when these companies are bringing in billions of dollars.

Aren't you a union member?
reply to ropeguru
Yeah, its excellent that the money they have been spending locally buying stuff from, maybe, your place of work ropeguru will now go to an insurance company. Awesome!!
I am sure it is a great win for you and you can finally sleep at night knowing they have lost that.
reply to Rob
No, I am not.. And given the track record of some unions these days, I have no desire to be a union member any longer. They have become too big and corrupt.

The work that I do does not have customers like that. But I understand your point.
And to that point, the economy has tanked enough that I don't think that the CWA workers are going to make much of an impact on the over economy if they have to start paying some portion of their benefits.
So could try on that argument but it just doesn't hold water.
