Workers vs NLRB…

leave a comment »

Workers at an Alabama plant have  voted to de-certify  the United Auto Workers Union for the fifth time in less than two years.   Perhaps this time the National Labor Relations Board will actually rule that the union has been officially de-certified instead of trying to thwart the will of the workers by giving the union yet another bite at the apple.

It is not possible to make a parody about PETA,  because it does such insanely  stupid things  without provocation or assistance.

I used to raise chickens,  but never managed to teach a single one of them the alphabet,  much less to read.

CEO vs worker pay…
