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!

So in those other groups you are relying once again on others to carry the weight of your load.

TWU = 1.7% of wage

Church = 10% wage

Political = pound of flesh, party, taxes, etc.

Charity = optional, but matched through employer?

I don't see how union dues exceed your supposed generosity.

maybe the other groups know how to provide their services more efficiently...
I don't rely on anyone else to "carry me" everyone pays the same amount. And in several of the groups I am on the executive and very much pulling my weight and then some.

The point is that the union provides absolutely ZERO value, for a huge fortune of my wage,

and 1.7%? that may be peanuts to you, but I have better things to do with my thousands...

How many of those groups where you serve on the executive receive gov't funding?
