    This is pretty good but for accuracy he should have one person in a back hoe running the controls and ten more standing around a truck smoking.

    Employ good highly skilled union labor to fix the devastation brought by far “right” thieves in board rooms.

    @Clark Kent

    Because far “left” thieves in board rooms only steal from “other” rich people?

    Childish cartoon, childish way to “fix” an economy….But its far more than bloated pensions.. its greed…both liberal and conservative..
    NOT just one or the other…

    Generally, the unions have “given back” many of their gains….and I feel that my union(United Steelworkers) never was greedy in the first place….
    Have the wealthy done the same ??

    “Have the wealthy done the same ??”
    I would need to see what they are investing in and where the “payoffs” were going.
    Many companies that had fully funded pensions were bought for all that “free” money and there is no pension fund left.

    Just for grins I decided to read the “USA” plan that is suggested in the cartoon. It is glowingly displayed in extremely general terms as a “no impact” program that will benefit the worker, improve Social Security and not be an additional burden to the employer. The magic sentence they don’t define is based on the following (I’m paraphrasing) There will be no impact on employers who have DC (defined contribution plans, I.e. 401K) that are making a match/sharing contribution to the employees plan.
    *
    So does this mean their USA plan will require a “matching contribution” on the part of the employers? They don’t discuss how much that would be in the initial literature. Details are sketchy and some information, like creating an annuity with funds at retirement so the employee doesn’t run out of money as they can with a 401 K or an IRA. Some suggest the employer could be looking at 6 to 10% required matching. Apparently more will be revealed at some future date.

    It is unpatriotic to talk about insolvent pension plans now – at least according to Mr. Asay it seems. What next? Exclude all white collar crime from prosecution?

    “Too big to fail” is blackmail. Let them fail. Take the hit. Put all the greedy bastards in jail, confiscate everything they own and get the economy back on track with these riches.

    Ask the GM workers. The union pensions were saved, while the non-union pensions were gutted to take care of their “brothers.”

    Union bosses are always greedy. First, they’ll steal from taxpayers or businesses. Then they’ll steal from their members. Either way, they’re crooks.

    “Put all the greedy bastards in jail, confiscate everything they own and get the economy back on track with these riches.”

    Can we include folks like Frank, Rangel, Geithner, Solyndra execs, and their ilk?

    We will continue to spiral ever more swiftly toward bankruptcy if the the backs of the corrupt unions are not broken.

    So let me take this all in. The unions are no good? The middle class and minimum wage workers should depend on big business to look out for their well being. No job security but don’t worry they won’t get thrown out the door when they are old and their productivity declines. The companies, like Bane, GE, Exxon, they’ll get together and give them medical coverage and homes in their old age. After all the fortune 500 has such a great track record along with the compassionate conservatives. A thousand points of light and so on. Maybe the libertarians have it right the churches and the salvation army will jump into the gap but I wouldn’t count on it.
