Thug fight! Putting popcorn on the grocery list. Portland's downtrodden longshore union has their panties in a twist, and citing "attacks" from AFL-CIO (in which members of other unions have been crossing ILWU picket lines), the head thug in Portland, "Big Bob", has written a sternly-worded letter to top national thug, Trumka.
ILWU's been part of AFL-CIO for a quarter of a century, but the dock thugs are goin' it alone from now on. Old dogs, old tricks. All these crybabies do is complain and vandalize and disrupt - despite the fact that they're incredibly well-paid to perform tasks that could be accomplished by trained baboons. A broom-pusher gets $35 an hour to sweep, believe it or not. Plus benefits! No wonder fast-food workers figure they're entitled to $15 an hour.
Nobody throws tantrums like the boys at ILWU.
