    Anyone who agrees with this is just trying to start stuff. That is insane. What do all of you think is a fair wage and benefit for semi-skilled job? carpenters, electricians, mechanics, most factory workers, blue collar stuff? Estimate. Assume that a person paying a portion of benefits.

    A government that is powerful and large enough to give you things, is powerful and large enough to take things away.

    The GOP didn't want to bail out GM and those idiots demonized us. Now they might have to lie in the bed that they made.

    I've no sympathy.

    Contractors are the dirty little secret of modern business. It allows companies to adjust manpower without any strings.

    Of course, most of those contractors are probably not a family's primary breadwinner to start with.
