Union aims to organize the unemployed

Union aims to organize the unemployed

Would they be public sector, or private sector thugs?

This little Piggly Wiggly went to the market


Oh Yeah?

Last September the magager of a  Piggly Wiggly grocery store in  Sheboygan WI  reduced hours for 19  employees represented by the  United Food and Commercial Workers union, shortly after the union’s labor deal expired.

They cried foul, and in May a NLRB administrative law judge ordered the company to restore full-time status and benefits to represented employees at the store whose hours were reduced without bargaining with their union.

Sheboygan-based Piggly Wiggly Midwest notified the state on Tuesday it intends to close its south-side Sheboygan store by Sept. 1, the same store that had been the subject of a recent complaint by the United Food and Commercial Workers union.

The closing would result in the loss of 108 jobs at the store at 3124 South Business Drive, the notice to the state Department of Workforce Development said. Workers would not be offered bumping rights to other locations.  [Full]

Given the drubbing public sector unions have taken in Wisconsin, it looks like Piggly-Wiggly decided to lay down their own marker.

Graham grills Holder

Sen. Lindsay Lohan Mugs Holder

Lord knows, I am not a Lindsay Lohan Graham fan, but give the devil his due. Here he  questions Atty. Gen. Holder's decision not to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate recent national security leaks, and twists him into knots.  Well done.

Good News, Bad News


Res Ipsa Loquitur

The good news is my fever broke.  The bad news is that it broke just minutes before a team from the Guinness Book of World Records arrived.  The were summoned by MoSup to verify my claim of having the most serious summer cold in all of mankind,  and  survive.  Without hardly complaining.  Oh well, I would only have broken my own record.  Now, where was I?
