Here we go again: LAX airport workers union plan STRIKE on Black Friday...
Employees at Los Angeles International Airport were considering plans Friday to walk off the job ahead on what is traditionally the busiest traveling day of the year.

A coalition of Southland labor and community leaders are calling for the protest of alleged violations by LAX contractor Aviation Safeguards (AVSG) after breaking their contract with the airport earlier this year.

Andrew Gross-Gaitan, the director of the Southern California Airports Division of SEIU, told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that AVSG left more than 400 LAX workers without affordable family health care when it failed to comply with the city’s Living Wage Ordinance.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

The union is part of the problem that makes us slaves.

Why can't people just stand up for themselves. In a free market you have the ability to find another job. There is something called job competition.

It's because of unions that you make a decent wage. It's because of unions that you work a 40 hour week instead of 72 hours or more. It's because of unions that you get holidays off with pay. It's because of unions that you get 2 weeks vacation with pay. It's because of unions that you get sick days with pay. Geez, but you people on this site either don't know your history or you just want what you think is good for you. If it weren't for unions, the U.S. would be ranked with 3rd world country pay scales and benefits, which are none.

Unions will NOT be the death of this country, big corporations will. They want low wage workers with no benefits.

pilots make 19k a year after going into debt around 80k to be able to fly, reagan had no nuts, his handlers had his nuts in a vice grip. The most successful company with a union is UPS, best job to have in the states... great pay and great benefits... ask anyone who works for a corporation without one... they get treated like snot, myself included.

you can only say this if you are part of the 1%...otherwise, to vote against the unions is to make every last american a slave to the corporations that want everyone to make 10 an hour with no medical, pension, etc etc. Look at Walmart - they pay their employees jack, most are part time workers, they send them to the state for medical care -which YOU PAY FOR, and then they pay almost NO taxes!!!

Unions is what keeps families making living wages, with pensions, sick time, vacation time - over time. Before the unions - people worked 6 or 7 days a week, 10 hours a day , had NO VACATION or sick days and make slave wages!!!

you suckers who are buying into the corporate anti-union hype are FOOLS of the HIGHEST MAGNITUDE!!!!

Let's examine everything you just said.

"you can only say this if you are part of the 1%...otherwise, to vote against the unions is to make every last american a slave to the corporations that want everyone to make 10 an hour with no medical, pension, etc etc."

That is pure nonsense and you know it, I know a great deal of people growing economists and libertarians that make min. wage and are certainly not in the 1 percent and that advocate for end of unions. Why? Because they are now destructive to our economy. When unions were first organized it could be said they were helpful in at least providing for workers and making sure they didn't get thrown under the bus. The conditions were terrible in part because the technology was terrible, it has advanced and the conditions have gradually gotten better


Look at Walmart - they pay their employees jack, most are part time workers, they send them to the state for medical care -which YOU PAY FOR, and then they pay almost NO taxes!!!
Walmart works the way it does because consumers want it. If consumers didn't shop there Walmart would change its business practices.

"Unions is what keeps families making living wages, with pensions, sick time, vacation time - over time. Before the unions - people worked 6 or 7 days a week, 10 hours a day , had NO VACATION or sick days and make slave wages!!!"

"What keeps families making living wages" No, what would dictate living wages would be inflation and market equilibrium if it were allowed to exist.

with pensions, sick time, vacation time - over time. Before the unions - people worked 6 or 7 days a week, 10 hours a day , had NO VACATION or sick days and make slave wages!!!
All those things you mentioned would be given to those deserving of them within the company for staying so long, not just because they say they deserve it. And once again slave wages, is determined by market and inflation.
In example if the average wage across the U.S was 5 dollars an hour, not mandated but average. then the price of food would have to go down to reach market equilibrium. plus assuming we have a "FREE market" The subsides to corn and farms would decrease and farmers who would actually have to work for their food would decrease prices to compete. PLUS Monsanto would be out of congress out of public affairs along with the rest of the lobbyists in Washington.

Therefore I submit to you that Govt. and public unions are not the solution they are the problem.
