A Rant!

Yesterday I blogged about dead wood Wikipedia characterizes this as referring to “non-contributing members, usually of longer standing”, which is pretty good in my book.

Today the union representing the “dead wood” that comprises the OC Transpo in Ottawa reached the milestone of 50 days on strike.

Yesterday I read that more than 70,000 jobs were lost around the world just in January.

Yesterday the Canadian Federal Government unveiled a package of spending designed to stimulate our economy in the face of such world-wide turmoil.

The Teachers Assistants at York University have just about killed the academic year for many students with their strike action.

What is wrong with this picture?

Why does our society provide protection to these ungrateful people?

Every morning I pass a bunch of picketers blocking traffic into Ottawa city hall. A cadre of policemen have to direct traffic and presumably protect these morons from people who just might be inclined to vent their frustration on them.

The world is mad!

It would be SO sweet to fire them all and replace them with people that want a job!

Not sure if you noticed … but I am a little worked up about unions these days!

  1. I think it’s insane that York has said they won’t refund tuition. Even more insane is how the York strikers have said they’re paving the way for a provice-wide strike in 2010.

  3. York is certainly not blameless in this situation … and they need to quickly understand who their client is … the students!

    But this is a union out of control and with NO understandng of reality. Sadly it seems all too common in unions these days!
