Really?
FagGropers?????

I can't believe what I'm reading with you people.

As for your "I'm a successful business owner" statement, from your input on these forums, I *highly* doubt that. However, we will never know because you will undoubtedly come back and state you are.

But really, FagGropers....you honestly don't see how absolutely ignorant you appear, do you?

They saw the need for a balanced council.

Did not happen.

LOL!

So when your guys don't win, it's because people were too stupid to think for themselves.

When union fat-cats use union funds sucked off the cheques of workers to support people running in elections, then it's because they support "a need for a balanced council", but when anyone else endorses anyone for council, they are evil "henchmen". The stench of hypocrisy wafting off of your leftist carcass is just putrid.

I know many people who voted Basran, simply because he was younger.

Yes, that is stupid.

So roughly 17K people voted for Basaran. You know and have spoken to the majority of that 17K people and confirmed they voted because he was younger?
Wow, who knew you had such far reaching connections. Perhaps next time your efforts would have been better spent speaking with them prior to the election and setting them on the right path.

You are absolutely wrong on this. The benefits are excellent and the wages are higher than most businesses in that category.

Thanks Jo for setting the record straight. I just don't get why some people get off telling massive fibs like that just to support a sick and twisted political agenda.

Not that I want to argue with Jo.......

I myself have applied for a position at KF in the paint department, and I can say that my starting wage would have been LESS than what I was making at a local parts supplier ( in a "paint and body" department ) This was after taking a tour with "The Grant".....

The benefits I can't speak of, as I didn't persue that option any further. I do know that at the time, the yearly bonuses to the associates were cut by quite a bit.

I'm not trying to derail this thread, just needed to give my personal experience....

I think he meant to say that "I know many people who worked at Flightcraft and have moved on . They NOW have basic wages and no benefits"

Nope.

Basic wages and most benefits paid for by the employee, and optional.

Sorry, Jo but that's the way it is.

I know firemen who came from there.
