Tell those in those top offices to give back 8% of their wages, and see how they'll react. That's just American greed at its finest.
Did you even read some of the union work rules? If someone needed to use a drill or other electric for maintenance, they had to send 2 people. The maintenance guy and AN ELECTRICIAN. Why'd they need the electrician? To PLUG IN THE DRILL!!!!
Oh, and they can't send the bread and the cakes on the same truck. They have to send on separate trucks. Two drivers, two trucks using fuel, most of the time they just caravan and get to the delivery points at the same time.
These union folks got what they deserve. Unemployment.
