Comment Re:Unions (Score 4, Interesting) 594

Unions certainly had their time and place in history, but these days it seems to be less about standing up for the little guy and more about how much money can we bring in via Union Dues. ( My opinion of course, I work within a Union Company )

Sounds like your union sucks, therefore all unions suck? Maybe you should get more involved in your union.

That said, $21 an hour is a rather laughable wage in a State with a high cost of living like California.

That's rather the union's point, is it not?

I'm not sure why you're calling out "hardcore liberals" here. I have no doubt that hardcore conservatives also "park" in the way you describe.

Because American politics have a conservative wing that is so far out there and is so convinced that they are entitled to having a monoculture that anything that has a neutral point of review, and by extension, reality itself, has a "hardcore liberal bias" from their perspective. The same ones that think Breitbart and Fox News are neutral, and NPR and BBC are leftist plots to make them look stupid. I'd love to say this was a rare thing, but it seems this is the nominal middle of the modern Republican movement.

No, because (somewhat ironically) its illegal to pay Americans that little.

The lawsuits says that workers were "brought-in", and were mostly H1-B holders. H1-B holders need to be paid market salary.

If it's anything like the way Intel does things in Hillsboro, yeah, that's not happening. They just lied to INS to get H1B visas and are paying 'em less than a Taco Bell manager makes.

You do realize that places like Tulsa, Oklahoma already get like, 35 channels over the air, even if you have a relatively shitty antenna setup and are stuck using an indoor antenna in a basement apartment at the bottom of a hill, right? And that's like, basically, the big three and the rest are specialty channels that are easily on par in terms of watchability with early to mid 1990s basic cable. Go to my dad's place in Los Angeles with the same antenna setup and you're looking at 70 channels. Get the antenna up on the chimney and it's more like 135. For free.
