an opinion that conflicts with both reality and freedom. You own a business its your right to fire someone for any reason at all or no reason.

My opinion reflects both reality and freedom. I own several businesses and its my right to treat my employees with respect, and not like disposable office supplies

Where are Republicans demanding more of your money?.....Where are they demanding tax increases?.....Where are they demanding more from We The People?

Increasing payroll taxes (Reagan), while raiding the SS Trust Fund. Stealing $12 trillion from the treasury, and another trillion from TARP.

Extortion is how Republican SugarDaddyState Government operates.....as it has a monopoly on brute force........as does its holy subsidiary THE CORPORATIONS.......and they both deal in ultimatums, threats, and violence.

Put the money in the bag or were going to shut your govt down, is what the republicans are doing............put the money in the bag or were sending men with guns to your door.........

To the rightwing, that sounds like freedom

Looks like someone doesn't understand contract law.

The law doesn't require any employer to give their employees due process before terminating them, but if the employer signs a legally binding contract to do so, they MUST comply with those terms.

Looks like someone didn't read my reply. That would be why I qualified it with "unless you are part of a union" because I know there are instances where a contract is signed.

Wrong again. It doesn't matter if you're in a union or not, if you have a contract that requires due process before termination, then the employer must give the employee due process before termination

People seem to have problem with due process. Sure, some made poor deals. Renegotiate when the next contract comes up. Talk to your negotiators. Demand they do a better job if you don't like what they agreed to.

Stupid administrators. Signed a contract they can't afford.

They should put the union in charge. They know how to negotiate a contract.

I find it hilarious that you demand academic dissertation levels of proof from anyone who doesn't buy your swill while you spew complete BS and act as if it is the wisdom of Solomon.

Unions are mainly detrimental to America now

you make very bold, WRONG assertions
and then you cry foul when you are asked to defend your unsupported statements, such as this one:
in many cases employers have no other choice. You union types whine that those who work for wages are often paid "unfairly" well that position sort of destroys your claims
no one is seeking a dissertation. only a factual basis to support your statements
it can only be concluded that you are posting bull crap when you are without an ability to offer anything which would give your position
in short, you are consistently wrong. you cannot point to by instance in which the "employers have no other choice" but to adopt the wage increase sought by the union
in no way have you demonstrated any expertise in labor law

Good gawd man.....how can you be this naive?

In virtually every municipality where subprime union slob teachers reside.........on one side of the negotiating table sit the Democrat Union Slobs .......on the other sit Democrat Politicians.....LA would be a perfect example........as would Detroit......as would every liberal ****hole across this country.

Demand what exactly? That the Teacher's Union cease and desist from spending millions of dollars PROTECTING BAD TEACHERS? That the Democrat Party cease and desist from spending millions of dollars PROTECTING INCOMPETENCE AND CORRUPTION?

Report: Nearly Half Of Detroiters Can’t Read « CBS Detroit......a liberal utopia realized.

You're already demonstrated that only a very small, insignificant number of teachers are bad. And what factors besides teachers do you think might be involved in the problems in Detriot? Like I said, you really do hate teachers. :coffeepap

But this would require Badmutha reading more than just the headline. Is that a realistic expectation? From the report he referenced, it states that half of the cases of adult illiteracy are people that didn't graduate H.S. or have a GED, and no where does it mention public school teachers as being one of the causes.

Basically, he's admitted that employers are clueless boobs who are outwitted at every turn by those evil union bosses. And he wants the boobs to run the economy!!
