Hey everyone. I got some time to do the latest update to the board software, but it meant that all the old modifications and styles wouldn't work anymore. So, here you have the newest iteration of LabourTalk. Please let me know by Private Message if you run into any issues with the new styling. Some new features on the board are:

  • Latest HTML5 Responsive Styling - You can now see a new, more modern styling on the board. Along with this, you can resize the browser to see the board change with it. The board is now functional on all sizes of screens, including your cell phone, table and desktop/laptop.
  • Post Sharing - Although you could previously, the new layout means the sharing icons are more visible on the lower right hand corner of each post. Click your favourite social media outlet to share the desired post with them.
  • Multiple Themes - Previously there was only one theme in an attempt to lower the workload when modifications were put in place. Fortunately, the new modification system is much simpler to implement and we now have multiple colour options for you to enjoy. You can change these from your User Control Panel under the Board Settings heading.
  • Announcements - Announcements can now be posted here (where you're seeing this one) and, in most cases, can be dismissed. To dismiss them, please click the "X" in the top right corner of this box.
  • Collapsing Categories - Categories, such as News & Announcements or Welcome (below), can be collapsed to clear up some of the clutter. This state should be maintained as long as you're logged in.

We hope you like the changes!

Wimpole, you're of the mind that those are not "rights"?

The USA, all of Europe, Australia, New Zealand all have rights for employees to refuse to pay dues and to opt out of unioons. How did they manage to dodge turnng into "sweatshops"?

Pardon? You don't think "Right to Work" read "Right to Starve" states /county's/boroughs etc...don't exist in every country? That is amazing!

so if the only possible way to not die of starvation is to be unionized... care to explain why all of the people making the most money in the world are NOT unionized? or how the standard of living is HIGHER in european countries where mandatory unionization is illegal than it is here where the unions have their way?

Unions USED to fight for workers rights... 100 years ago. now they only fight for worker's paycheques.

As for "sweatshops" the LAW protects us from that, not unions.
