Heard a sound bite and hunted down the news story of the Bell Helicopter strike. The major sticking points is the elimination via outsourcing of 44 janitorial positions. That isn’t the real point I want to get out but keep that one in mind for later.
The biggie is healthcare changes that would increase the employees out of pocket cost. The mantra that will now surely come to our ears is that if we get Obamacare we can avoid these strikes and economy crushing angst.
