Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

You are all for hearings and oversight when it’s directed at the other party. But oversight cuts both ways. I don’t share your opinion of other people and I certainly don’t buy anything you say about what they will or will not be able to prove or what they may or may not do. The last 5 or 6 years h...

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

I haven’t pretended anything one way or the other. The process worked. We had an election. Again. All this hand wringing about threats to democracy was just political rhetoric based on the politics of fear. That’s the shitshow. The people bought what they bought. We now have split government.

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

Yet you don’t know the difference between an adjective and a noun and you can’t answer questions or speak for yourself. I highly doubt you have anyone’s number especially your own. Speak for yourself. You just admitted you don’t understand others. You probably spend too much time with the other ret...

That’s my point. You have nothing. So instead of talking for other people, speak for yourself. You should try it sometime. You obviously don’t understand the concept of quotation marks.

Re: Trump tells Mar-a-Lago special master that he got to decide which White House documents were his to keep

The first thing is Judge Cannon didn’t have any jurisdiction. It is elementary she cannot have anything to do with it. So taking this to the Supreme Court is worthless - They won’t hear it.

But hey, why not, after all, Trump never pays his lawyers anyway, right?

When this is final I look forward to your recap of what they got and how it compares to what they asked for PLUS how it compares to the rest of the world.

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

The Senate passed a rail agreement to be sent to the President . However, the GOP filibustered the paid leave amendment.

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

According to the numbers Number6 posted, the median for this type of work is approx 70K. So 110K base sounds more than reasonable. I have no idea what’s included in the benefits package, how it is valued. I assume it’s the basic health insurance and retirement package, vacation etc. I don’t have th...

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

Based on the Glenn’s link if accurate the difference between the base of 110K and total package of 160K is 50K. That’s pretty hefty. Maybe it’s overvalued but who knows. I would be curious as to what makes up those benefits and how they value them. Many companies these days do not do sick days. The...

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

Not against sick leave as long as you are sick. What will happen is this, say they get 6 days sick leave. Miraculously evert employee will get sick and miss 6 days a year. The average pay package is around $160,000 including benefits. At that rate you should be able to save enough to cover your sic...
