    This stuff makes me happy. I'm tired of these big corporations constantly ####ting all over their employees.

    I had someone threaten to fire me once because I wouldn't cross a picket line.

    Here's some worthless information for Ya'll
    John Deere is going to make a record profit this year of 6 billion dollars
    They employ 7000 people in the state of Iowa
    Everyone of them that is on strike is a UAW union member
    90% of the members rejected the offer of the new contract
    John Deere offers the 3rd best health care insurance in the USA
    the avg wage for a worker is 60k per year
    There's alot worse jobs here in Iowa.. than working for John Deere.. I promise you that

    Historically? So you wouldnt be beaten or singled out for public scrutiny.

    Solidarity with the workers in the time of union truck drivers (lets be fair, unions had a reason to exist at one time that was actually worthwhile, few today live up to their responsibility though)


    More recently, it just causes no end of trouble, lets say you are trying to deliver, well, who exactly is going to do the unloading? Do you want a not so bright union member dumping crap in your tank or nails in your tires?

    Bottom line is, its just not worth it
