[QUOTE=Jemplayer;119721]Say what you will, but why the guys holding the line are worried about losing everything before the strike ends the scabs are making bank and in this case a years pay in 4 months! And where are you at the end of the strike? That much poorer with very little to show for it. Most of the time it takes you years to make back what pay you lost while on strike, if you are lucky enough to get any type of raise.
All unions have done is keep the market rate for you guys years behind, and the owners are laughing all the way to the bank.
Face it unions are dead and holding you guys back. All they are doing is sucking dues out of your pay check and trying to under bid each other for the next contract. How is this helping the mariner?[/QUOTE]
What strike are you referring to?
