Everyday another problem.






There is trouble brewing at the ports on
 the west coast.
Truckers long shoremen, all asking for
more benifits. Big distruptions.


U.S agriculture shippers yesterday urged President Obama
 to “intervene personally” by bringing in a federal mediators to help
 reach a U.S. West Coast labor contract deal and 
end slowdowns at West Coast ports.
Much congestion, and if they don'y get the products
out there is a fee to pay. More expense. 
Merry Christmas, the cost will go up because of extra shipping charges.
Retailers will now use air cargo .
because of time limits and getting items here for holidays.
 “They both lose in a strike or a lockout, and they know it.”
 As the dockworkers and employers negotiate, about 
120 truck drivers protest.  ...
The drivers claim that the trucking companies have been 
misclassifying them as "independent contractors"
 in order to make it impossible, under federal labor laws,
 to unionize. The companies routinely deduct huge amounts from drivers' 
paychecks for fuel, parking, insurance and other expenses, 
a practice that the drivers say is wage theft. 
After drivers pay for the cost of renting and maintaining their trucks,
 their pay is often below the minimum wage. I am starting to hate watching
 the news. 
 Now meet the press, well I think giving a free pass is
 not good it shows we are weak. That's waving a flag come on over they 
won't do anything. 
About those cheap illegals doing farm work. 
Hey as soon as they are legal they want $20 an hour. and by the way 
Lettuce prices are out of sight now. 
How about all those insurance companies that will make them buy.
 Are they behind this bill? It's a country out of control.  
Think I'll post about TV and movie stars. 
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
