Have a safe and happy Labor Day!
Canada celebrates it today as well so nyeh.Wait, does this mean you Americans are not celebrating Labor Day on May 1st, like the rest of the world?
I wish I could work Labor Day. It’s our last triple time day that we haven’t given away yet.I mean, I get double time. So, it's not bad.
Seems to me we’re currently in a race to the bottom these days. For years we’ve have the standard two breaks and a lunch at BP refinery even though the contract gave away breaks.Proud union member, head shop steward, and lead contract writer/negotiator. We are better together!
And they've given it all away by supporting politicians and criminals sending jobs/whole industries out of America. But they only blame one party for that instead of both and demonize anyone who dares contradict their supposed past glories from 80-100 years ago. But maybe I'm still just sour that various union groups got 2-3 year extensions on their cadillac health insurance plans under the Affordable Healthcare Act while those of use who were self-insured got hosed. Yay equality.
What union groups have Cadillac insurance? Most I’ve talked to all have pretty shitty insurance that also costs quite a bit. I know mine isn’t cheap and doesn’t hardly cover a damn thing.
For that I'm glad! Many aren't as luckyI mean, I get double time. So, it's not bad.
Are you trying to jinx yourself and your city!? This is how you call a week of 100+ degree weather in September on youunofficial end of summer!...looks like one final heat wave in NYC this week
Well said brother. I am a proud union member and walked in a parade today with my family and about 100 of my union brothers and sisters.
