Re: Amazon and US Unions ?
Whenever I hear of unions I always remember the joke-
A dedicated Teamsters union worker was attending a convention in
Las Vegas and decided to check out the local brothels.
When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam,
"Is this a union house?"
"No," she replied, "I'm sorry it isn't."
"Well, if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?"
"The house gets $80 and the girls get $20," she answered.
Offended at such unfair dealings, the union man stomped off down the
street in search of a more equitable, hopefully unionized shop His search continued until finally he reached a brothel where the Madam responded, "Why yes sir, this is a union house. We observe all union rules."The man asked, "And if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?"
"The girls get $80 and the house gets $20" the madam replied.
"That's more like it!" the union man said.
He handed the Madam $100, looked around the room,
and pointed to a stunningly attractive blonde.
"I'd like her," he said.
"I'm sure you would, sir," said the Madam.
Then she gestured to a 92-year old woman in the corner, "but Ethel here
has 67 years seniority and according to union rules, she's next."
