    Now I know this will all come at a great shock for the cons, but this exaplains by going Union is superior to hiring wino scabs. I just keep blowing those con-myths!

    "Productivity is a term most people throw around pretty freely these days. But when we use it, we back it up with proof," said Steve Lamb, executive vice president of MCA Chicago. "Union workers receive extensive training and so incur fewer injuries and lawsuits. Their quality workmanship results in greater productivity and timely results, and that adds up to savings.":clap2:

    According to the study, the average Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) apprenticeship program:

    -registers relatively few apprentices,
    -produces more cancellations than graduations,
    -enrolls a small proportion of female and minority apprentices, and
    -provides training in a narrower range of crafts.
    -Union apprenticeship programs, on the other hand, enroll and graduate the majority of
    -construction apprentices, including the majority of female and minority apprentices.

    The study states: "The hundreds of millions of dollars the union sector spends annually on apprenticeship and training programs produces the skilled workers vital to the construction industry's future."

    Department of Labor records from 36 states show that union programs have enrolled 72 percent of construction apprentices since 1989, and have enrolled almost three times as many minorities and over four times as many women as non-union programs.

    This study does much to support calls for extensive targeted training with demanding qualifications

    it doesn't support the conclusion you seem to want it to

    Can you keep your union stuff to one thread?

    Or do you feel the need to post a new union thread after you get your ass kicked in an old one?

    ???????????? Are you saying that in order to get into a union apprenticeship, you need to know someone? Or perhaps, learn how to milk the system for more dollars to train the select few...Speak in english, as opposed to union hall pidgin.

    Your own link reads: Training Is Key Factor to Worker Productivity


    The training, not the union membership, was the difference

    This study does much to support calls for extensive targeted training with demanding qualifications

    It doesn't support the conclusion you want it to

    No, because this thread adresses one small window: Productivity differences between union and nonunion workers. This is a common con myth that nonunion workers are as productive as union workers, they just make less money, therefore union workers must make too much money for what they do. The myth is a lie, and I am exposing it here.

    I hope you are not afraid to hear the truth, and I hear no cry to limit threads to one RNC or DNC Party, so I don't see a problem. I just don't want the cons getting confused about what post they are on. :lol:


    That hasn't happened yet, so that is no problem.

    Someone should make a study of how many companies have been forced to move overseas because of unions and the companies necessity to be profitable.
