to blow hard who knows NOT how to think, education is ONLY ONE measurement for SOME jobs. Higher positions usually require higher education. However, there are Billionaires like Branson who were school dropouts. MID-management company positions usually require and government positions at Liv Lab for example, require a degree...just because!! ask them why skills aren't enough. Today because degrees are becoming the norm, you don't GET interviewed in most MID-level openings in the FIRST place!!!! Except today, even in many engineering type jobs you don't 'have' a position like mechanical engineer IN a company. IF a company need manpower for a new product/contract order, the company simply says to the engineer, come in and work, turn in your hours, and we can probably use you something like 4-6 months on our latest missile or camera contract. When you're done, you're gone. NO Christmas Day pay, company was locked. Need 3 hrs for medical procedure, those 3 hours are missing on hours worked on project that week time. That's today's world of degreed 50yr old, educated workers....workers, NOT employEEs. But that worker still has to pay outrageous taxes for the political whxxxx who have sold out taxpayers who are then held hostage for feeding the greedy PUBLIC unions.
Now, if you're angry at 'wealthy' people, you have that right for your feelings and opinions, be they right or wrong. But, don't confuse EDUCATED middle-class workers who have twice the skills of your positions, but earn less, and have NO JOB-SECURITY. Why? Because as at the top of this topic above, UNION workers are the single HIGHEST political contributors in all CA elections to elect people who will perpetuate union excesses. Uneducated PUBLIC workers, living off educated middle-class who suffer...That's real Inequality!!!
Today's Inequality is REAL for the Middle-class. Today's focus, yet abuse of inequality is NOT understanding MIDDLE-income inequality.
You think you understand tiny bits of the situation. True, the rich do just fine no matter what. The poor get by under dozens of programs PER family, i.e. free-luch prm which opens to door to goodies forever, free higher education, subsidized housing, medi-cal medicine, special pg&e rates, food stamps, etc, too long to list, but netting out almost as well, as TODAY'S NEW Middle-class Educated worker. That Middle-income worker who will work until he can no longer work, no matter the age without retirement, to pay unrealistic, and unjustified union demands. Yes, the bought-off politicians are serving unions/you well...screw the middle-income taxpayers.
Yes, as the title above says, Legislators KILL the strike BAN proposal. Predictable. The unfunded assult continues. Unfair to expect the abused middle-income company-to-company worker to foot the bill, and unfair for our kids too. The assult of excesses must end.
