Wisconsin protest sighting

Published February 26th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson


Michael spotted this man protesting the anti-union measures in Wisconsin today on CNN.  I know there are many Pastafarians in Madison and that most all of us are in support of your efforts.  Stay strong, guys. Let us know how we can help.

    I think anyone who has ever held a union job (and gave that job their all) would totally disagree about unions being great. It’s pretty tough to know that you’re busting your ass and you’ll never make as much as the lazy guys because they’ve been there longer.

    Hell, if I weren’t browsing while really sleepy, I might try to draw up a correlation between length of time at a union job and how much you actually “try” at your job.

      Yes, unions aren’t perfect, but consider the conditions that created them. Think every business is run by kind-hearted bosses? Look up the history of the mine workers in West Virginia (the only time American civilians were targeted by their own armed forces for aerial bombardment) or the Battle of the Overpass with the auto workers and you’ll see how brutal Big Business – in cahoots with the federal government – can be.

      So, your choice is arbitrary pay for longevity or arbitrary pay and security at the whim of incompetent management. Anti-union movements are about depresing the wages of everyone not on the senior level. Unless you think the Koch brothers have YOUR best interest at heart?

      In re: pay for seniority; It’s probably at least as valid as pay for the sup’s favorite boy. I’ve worked front-line labor postitions, more often than not even the first line supervisors appeared to know which of their people were actually making money for the company.

        Edit fail: “… first line supervisors appeared to NOT know which of their people …”.
