Union Wins Freedom for Its Members!

They are now free, free at last, to leave the picket line and go get in the unemployment line.  Of course they were free all long to improve their own marketability by getting more education or learning new skills.  

Seems silly to go home to your family and say " We beat Carl Icahn, but I am unemployed."   And, "Yes dear, he is still a billionaire."

I know you're being facetious, but I am always amazed that people are willing to work at low paying jobs and not willing to make a few sacrifices to improve their situation.

There are always better jobs available for those that will make the effort to prepare for them.  For a waitress, go to night school and get an associates degree in business or nutrition, or hospitality. Then apply for a job to manage a bar or restaurant.   One of my daughters was a waitress, went to college, got a bachelors in business, and now she manages a bar.  I urge her to aim higher but the pay is good and she likes what she doing.  My theory, you gotta like your job and receive pay that makes you smile.  Otherwise it's time for a change.  These casino employees had several years advance notice that the area casinos were closing.  If they did nothing to prepare for that eventuality, then tough beans for them.  IMHO.
