You better start realizing that your wage isn't why you can't afford to live anymore. And it isn't your employers fault either. The problem sits comfortably in Washington.

Your right part time. Seems went pretty good for200 yrs.

But then again most americans can't live on $5/day.no benefits and the chance of being burnt alive in an unsafe factory.

But i know you fit right in there Part Time

These people never have a solution.

Just cut wages"create more wel-fare and ***** about that " Cut spending even though there not enough places to cut to cover all the exspenses.

Give more money to the weal;lthy who do nothing but set on it or invest it to make more money/

Continuous hot air

Ladybug your right, Qcity is a idiot.I think we should change to private education like in TN. The when kids get low grades we just delete them and pretend they never happend. Life is certainly grand on top of ******** mountain.

From ladybug "Name call all you want .But unless this country starts educating and training people for the jobs of the future."

We spend more on education than ever before in history, yet the union-mob run public education monopoly turns out more functional illiterates than ever before in history. Just ANOTHER horrific commentary on unionism in America, and the destruction it ALWAYS leaves behind.

Your right Phoenix: These people forget that the more people have to spend the more they will buy.

Maybe a new car,, which in turn requires more product made by Ventra

Or we could continue to go the other way .Less money ,less purchasing and more dependance on gov, aid.

Even the great Donald says he buys only american made products,

Why : It's better made and last alot longer.

He also says american workers can outproduce any other country and it's time to bring jobs back here.

It was funnie listening to the comments of the office people how the workers had it made,I think that attitude changed when the got the chance to do the work for 5 weeks,

But of course we thought how much the office force had it made.Setting around bs ing,bringing in goodies, And of corse there was always more chiefs than indians and every chief had a asst.. But of corse it was always our fault in the end Right !!

Unions arn't perfect ,Just like everything else.

But if it wasn't for these people yrs.ago jerks like you wouldn't be getting a deceny pay ck,vacation,holidas ,pensions and most of all a safer work place,

Just ask the old timers at Mullins whose missing fingers and hands.

Most of these people are good hard working individuals.And unless youv'e done some of these jobs maybe you should sip it.

Truthhurts. You should your facts str. before shutting off your mouth.

alot of that bs your spreading cnanged at Lordstown with the bailout.

Qucity .Your full of it also. Incr. productivity went to the bottom line.Show me prices that have declined,was is the avg, family income in Salem around $30000 and over 50% liveing below poverty levels.

Watchdog. The biggest part of the bailout money went to banks,Who buy the way continued to pay out big bonuses and wage to the people who screwed things up.

FACT: 92% of Obamas "bailouts" went to unionized companies. To stop bankruptcy or shut down. FACT: Bailouts are over for UNIONS...you are your own. If it wasn't for American taxpayers, non union included...you would all be out of your jobs! It took non union employees to help save your butts!

Hey Beaumont: STATE STATISTICS.

The nation’s union membership rate dropped to 11.3 percent last year from 11.8 percent in 2011. Similarly, union workers in Ohio made up 12.6 percent of those working in the state in 2012, down from 13.4 percent a year earlier.

The unions are SHRINKING why do you think the circus is town?

Have an argument against FACTS and TRUTH? PUT UP OR SHUT UP! It is that simple buddy!
