Gosh, Malcolm...do they still allow Unions where you are? I'm not sure they still do here (U.S.)...OH...yeah...they are allowed to exist so that the Corporations have someone to roll over and crush every now and then...exaggerating? Yeah...a bit - but at the end of the day what you see is generally what the Corporations wanted...even if it ends up screwing them over as well...5's ~ ~ ~

Malcolm supporting labor unions? (Labour unions?) Next, Guy will give up his guns! (OK, let's not get carried away here.) A five percent raise and a five-year contract! With a choice of five health plans!
