Jim Beam whiskey makers go on strike...

Post by Thunder1 » October 18th 2016, 12:19pm

Folks, they need to get this one resolved pronto...

Jim Beam whiskey makers go on strike
On Saturday, 252 employees of the world's largest bourbon producer ceased production at two of its facilities in Clermont and Boston, Kentucky and entered a strike following months of failed contract negotiations.

Janelle Mudd, a Jim Beam employee and union representative, said Sunday that union leaders had been meeting with the plants' managers since April to discuss a contract that expired in August.

And while a spokesman said the company offered a competitive proposal with salary raises, Mudd said the group had not reached an agreement that would improve workers' quality of life. A key issue is a demand that the company hire more workers so that current employees don't have to work up to 80 hours a week and can spend more time with their families.

Jim Beam stopping making that junk would seem to be a public service!
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

This is awesome. If Watchlords had a gold section, this would be in it.

That redhead probably gets all kinds of action after 3 AM when the bar closes.

Just to put my 2 cents in, there are numerous bottom shelf liquors better than JB.
