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!

Labor Unions See Sharp Slide in U.S. Public Support

Postby NC » Fri Sep 04, 2009 1:21 pm

I personally read this as a public realization of the danger of the Employee Free Choice (No guaranteed vote) coming to power. The public knows this will mean higher costs and fewer choices.
PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup finds organized labor taking a significant image hit in the past year. While 66% of Americans continue to believe unions are beneficial to their own members, a slight majority now say unions hurt the nation's economy. More broadly, fewer than half of Americans -- 48%, an all-time low -- approve of labor unions, down from 59% a year ago.

I also think that today's unions remain too archaic and seem to be almost devolving. The SEIU is acting like it's 1950 and may soon start driving around with tommyguns in the back seat running brothels.

Ohhh NC, you are such a dinosaur. Nowadays is it AK-47 knockoffs that they use. I also hear that they are tying out using aluminum baseball bats for pounding heads. I don't think they will be successful there. there is nothing like the sound of bone on wood to make the union thugs' heart sing....
