The three kids from multiple fathers can be talked about all you want. As a catholic, i let God judge and try to help my fellow humans.

Our demand is that, however you badmouth someone, you deal with the reality that exists. If that means three innocent kids need to eat and their caretaker needs assistance to give them the stable environment that will allow them to thrive and make better choices; we would like t o deal with that situation.

Not true, a major problem with the current economy is the low interest rates. There are huge pools of money looking to be invested, and only so many places to invest them. That's what's running up stock prices and moving us back into bubble territory.

Thank you.

Founded in i38o, the Evening News, which was establishment and Republican, had been run by the Butler family, which also owned a local television station and a fortune in American Airlines stock. In recent decades, the proprietor had been Kate Robinson Butler, a grande dame who traveled with her poodle in a Rolls-Royce. Butler had built a lavish printing plant, rimmed with distinctly nonnative tropical plants, and had gone to similar expense to avoid trouble with unions.* Employees who hac once tied the papers by hand had continued at their posts after the work was automated. As papers came off the runway, the workers would pass their hands over the conveyors, as if offering a sacrament. They were known as "blessers."6 But the family's stewardship had ended with Butler's death, in 1974. Now the paper was up for sale by her estate.

Sounds like classic mismanagement to me, less of a union problem.

I'd love to see a reference for you paper folders anecdote. It sure is a strong talking point...
Management has been very successful at demonizing unions for the past century. Now people are starting to catch on that management is a huge part of the problem as well. May you be as successful with your lies.

There is very little future in being right when your boss is wrong.
