OK, this is getting ridiculous. Just saw an Air Traffic Controller's Union commercial on Fox news complaining about how Bush won't hire more ATCs, and therefore our skies are less safe! Jesus H - next thing you know someone will say that the pimple on their ass is Bush's fault and John Kerry has a plan! These Demos and union whiners are so full of shit it isn't even funny. They are really reaching.
Did they ever think that maybe we don't NEED more ATCs than in the past because of better technology, computers, etc.? Oh, that's right, unions think that hiring 10 people at high wages to do a job that only takes 4 people makes perfect sense.
I saw it too .
They skipped right over the fact that Regan fired them all back in 81 because the union
wouldn't deal . The union's demands were a $10,000 across the board raise, a 32-hour workweek , and a better retirement package . He also banned all those fired from every getting their job back .23 years later the union is still fighting to get them rehired instead of finding new blood .
They also spent a whole bunch of money trying to stop Washington National Airport being renamed
to Ronald Reagan International , they didn't win that one either .
