Portland-area businesses can look forward to more economic disruption because the union thugs may be asked to pay more than a whole dollar for their prescriptions, should they need any. The Horror!
A full-time longshoreman earns about $130,000 a year, while foremen earn about $210,000, according to employer data. Workers pay nearly nothing for health coverage that includes no premiums and $1 prescriptions.
These thugs rake in more in total compensation than the average medical professional for doing little more than whining and crying and periodically vandalizing equipment. They sure as hell don’t earn that compensation, yet they keep demanding more.
What is needed is somebody with the guts to do what Reagan did when the air traffic controllers got too big for their britches. That was pretty rich, what with “outraged” unionistas running around wearing big buttons that read: Ronald Reagan is a union-busting son of a bitch!
Yes, those were good times. We need a repeat of that with the longshoremen union.
