Out of respect. Read up on Labor history. It’s very interesting. Railroad Workers having a bomb dropped on them by our own Government. Steel Mill Workers opened fire upon by Company hired Security. Auto Workers being fired upon. None of the Workers protection rights were given. They were fought for. Walter Reuther, got beaten by Ford Hired Thugs. Famous picture of him, laughing as they approached him. Jimmy Hoffa history is very interesting. Especially for a Trucker. Have to know how we got here. To understand where we’re at and where we’re headed.
ALL the food plants I deliver to are flogging their workers, because despite signing bonuses and what I consider to be rather competitive starting pay ($17-$20 per hour for ENTRY LEVEL production worker), they can't get anyone to apply, and the few that DO apply can't pass a drug test.
But then these people go whine about the empty shelves in the grocery store and how the "Government Should DOOOOOO Something"........
Years ago a peanut butter manufacturer was on strike in Louisville, Kentucky. They were out picketing and harassing drivers coming in the gate. I told them flat out “screw you and your union, I don’t have a dog in this fight, I’m not a union driver, don’t believe in unions and could careless about your issues with management”
