Who needs a good paying Job?

Ya, they say the great recession has ended.  If that is the case, then why are not all who want to work finding jobs?  Once good paying jobs are now nowhere to be found, so when I keep hearing about unions striking for more money and more benefits I just cringe.  The reality is everyone's standard of living will be coming down, in the private sector it has already happened.  There needs to be a reality check with the unions and with public employees.  The money does not flow freely anymore and cut backs need to be addressed (Greece, Spain,). 

JOLIET, Ill.—Union leaders at a Caterpillar Inc. plant here say they will urge striking workers to reject a slightly revised contract offer from the maker of construction and mining equipment.
"It is still a terrible contract," Tim O'Brien, president of the local branch of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, or IAM, said in an interview on Tuesday. The workers, who have been on strike for a month, are due to meet Wednesday to vote on the latest Caterpillar contract offer. Mr. O'Brien said about 780 workers at the factory are out on strike.

Firer their sorry behinds and put an ad in the "help wanted" section of the local paper to see how many people really want a job at good pay and with benefits.  God helps those who help themselves and he doesn't even have to pay dues..........
