It seems to me that many residents of Pleasanton don't care if American employees make little to no money. The reason is that if you have little education, few marketable skills, you deserve nothing more than a few bucks a month. If you can't live on that, tough luck!

All you have to do is read the arguments re: the current Union/BART conflict.

tee hee hee...BUSTED!

what a bunch of worthless crap. I love my freedom to choose. I choose free market competition....the consumer wins!
It does show the reason to pay attention in school...so you could understand basic economics, You could start your own company too. And isn't it wonderful you have the RIGHT to shop wherever you want. Many countries you don't even have choices of where to shop freely, with a wide variety of options. OPTIONS ! Freedom! why are you SO AGAINST that basic freedom, to work where you want & be ungrateful you can & make an axx of yourself, shop where you want, choose from a range of items & prices, and yes, even make a fool of yourself blogging nonsense, trying to justify your greed.

I can only pretend what it would be like to marry a billionaire.

I would do my best to be reasonable.

I would always say Good Morning!

Those capitalist myths die hard. I wonder if anti-union had the same ranting tantrum when he learned there wasn't a Santa Claus, too?

Most myths are busted when confronted with facts. Note how anti-union doesn't provide or deal with the facts. Thankfully, a dying breed.
