Skilled, experienced, college educated and degreed honor student with over 120 hrs total college credit very much a "qualified employee", except for one thing, he is a "DEMOCRAT" forced to live on food stamps in Evansville, Indiana. THIS WAS BEFORE THE RECESSION BEGAN, WHEN TIMES SUPPOSIDLY WERE GOOD 2004-2009
NOT EVEN BEING ABLE TO FIND FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT AND HAVING TO WORK AS A DISHWAHER FOR 2 YEARS. EVEN WHILE SUBMITTING HUNDREDS OF RESUMES AND APPLYING FOR EMPLOYMENT IN EVERY FACTORY, WITH PRACTICALLY EVERY AIR CONDITIONING CONTRACTOR, IN THE CITY. Had graduated with an Associate degree in Air Conditioning and refrigeration, had been licensed to work in this field with a universal classification, meaning could work on any system, residential or industrial. Had work experience as an air cond. technician.
WHY? ONE CAN ONLY ASSUME IT WAS BECAUSE HE WAS A DEMOCRAT IN THIS SORRY, SORRY, RED STATE. IT CERTAINLY WASN'T BECAUSE HE WASN'T TRYING TO GET A BETTER PAYING JOB. IT CERTAINLY WASN'T BECAUSE HE WASN'T QUALIFIED. THE RESUME SPOKE FOR ITSELF OVER 25 YEARS OF INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE AS A MACHINE OPERATOR WITH MAINTENANCE EXPERIENCE.
A NATIONAL DEANS LIST HONOR GRADUATE IN 1999 WITH AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE IN AIR CONDITIONING AND REFRIGERATION.
A STEADY WORKER HARDLY EVER MISSED A WORK DAY, DEPENDABLE.
TRUSTED TO MAKE SOLE PRODUCTION DECISIONS ON TWO MAJOR INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION LINES FOR 18 YEARS. RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OPERATION, STARTING AND STOPPING OF MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR EQUIPMENT.
YET TOLD ON HIS LAST TEST EXAM FOR AERO-TECH APPLYING FOR A JOB AT AN AUTO ASSEMBLY PLANT, THAT HE HAD FAILED THE RESPONSIBILITY PART OF THE TEST. WHAT A SHAM
TRUTH IS, THEY DID NOT WANT A FORMER 21 YR UNION MEMBER, AND 14 YR CONTRACT NEGOTIATOR TO BE EMPLOYED AT THEIR TEMP AGENCY.
THIS IS HOW MODERN DAY BLACK LISTING IS ACCOMPLISHED. DISCREDIT, TRY TO EMBARASS, HUMILIATE, AND DISCRIMINATE, DISCRIMINATE, DISCRIMINATE. NO MATTER HOW QUALIFIED THE APPLICANT IS.
ULTIMATELY BEING FORCED TO WORK FOR TEMP AGENCIES, THEN FINALLY JUST BY A STROKE OF LUCK AN OUT OF STATE EMPLOYER PLACED HIM INTO A JOB AT A LOCAL AUTO ASSEMBLEY PLANT. STILL BARELY MAKING ABOVE MINIMUM WAGE.
NOT UNTIL THIS WORKING MAN MARRIED FOR 28 YEARS WITH A SON AND A DAUGHTER, NOT UNTIL HE DRAWS HIS SOCIAL SECURITY WAGES FROM HIS GOOD PAYING UNION JOB, DOES HE FINALLY FIND SOME FINANCIAL SECURITY AND IS FINALLY ABLE TO GET AN INCOME ABOVE WHAT IS ALLOWED FOR FOOD STAMPS.
WITH ALL THIS EXPERIENCE, EDUCATION, AND KNOW HOW. HE COULD NOT GET A JOB PAYING ENOUGH TO GET OFF FOOD STAMPS FROM 2001 UNTIL 2009
HE WAS NEVER ABLE TO GET A FULL TIME JOB FROM THE MOMENT PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON SIGNED THE "FEDERAL FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE ACT" UNTIL THE OUT OF STATE EMPLOYER FROM CANADA HIRED HIM IN OCTOBER 2009
WAS THIS COINCIDENCE? I DON'T THINK SO, I THINK IT FOLLOWS A PRATICULAR PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR TOWARD THIS OUTSPOKEN AND VERY PRO ORGANIZED LABOR PROPONET.
THE FAILURE TO OFFER FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT, THE FAILURE TO OFFER JOB OPPORTUNITIES TO A "QUALIFIED APPLICANT" CAN ONLY BE EXPLAINED AS EGRIGOUS DISCRIMINATION, DEFAMATION, AND BLACKLISTING
YES IT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST AND IT IS STILL HAPPENING TODAY TO INDIVIDUALS, ONLY IN A NEW ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH IT IS EASIER TO HIDE THIS DIRTY LITTLE SECRET
NOW DO YOU STILL WONDER WHY THE REPUBLICAN ARE OUT TO DESTROY UNIONS IN THIS COUNTRY. THIS IS REALLY THE ONLY AVENUE OR METHOD A TRUE "DEMOCRAT" WHO WANTS TO REMAIN A DEMOCRAT CAN COUNT ON TO EARN A DECENT LIVING, HOPEFULLY LIVING A MIDDLE CLASS LIFESTYLE., AS I WAS ABLE TO DO WHILE I WAS EARNING UNION WAGES. BEING A 3 TIME HOMEOWNER.
HAVE PRACTICALLY BEEN ON FOOD STAMP WAGE LEVEL JOBS EVER SINCE QUITTING THE UNION,
ADVICE TO UNION MEMBERS, STAY IN IT, AND ON THE JOB, UNTIL YOUR READY TO RETIRE.
YOU WILL BE PUNISHED FOR BEING A MEMBER OF THIS PRIVELEGED GROUP ONCE YOUR OUT OF IT.
NEVER, NEVER, EVER TAKE THOSE UNION PAYCHECKS FOR GRANTED, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RETIRE IN DIGNITY FROM SOCIAL SECURITY BECAUSE OF THESE UNION WAGES THAT HAVE BEEN COLLECTED OVER THE YEARS.
BELIEVE ME THE STRATEGY NOW BY REPUBLICANS, KILL UNIONS, KILL SOCIAL SECURITY, TURN THIS COUNTRY INTO ANOTHER MEXICO WITH THE AMERICAN WORKER BECOMING NOTHING MORE THAN MEXICAN "PEONS"
TO ALL UNION MEMBERS WHO VOTE REPUBLICAN, THE VERY PARTY OUT TO DESTROY YOUR GOOD PAYCHECKS. YOU BETTER WAKE UP BEFORE ITS TOO LATE, DUMBASSES.
Hostility displayed by the entire state recently becoming a right to work state. Anti-union, discriminatory toward union workers as well.
Probably Mr. Romney's game plan for the entire country if elected. After all he did make his millions by being an out-sourcing pioneer at Bain Capital. At the expense of the commom factory worker.
How fitting he should come to Evansville, Indiana August 4. 2012 His kind of town I'm sure. Anti-union, discriminates against Democrats.
Sorry the you couldn't profit from aquiring the recently closed Whirlpool appliance factory. Hundreds of lost union jobs, announcing at first they were moving to Mexico, than later changed their story to moving to Tennessee. Probably just a scheme to get rid of the UNION
