When you can be replaced by a goat.....
« on: July 07, 2017, 04:51:56 am »
....was your job really necessary?  :rotflmao:

Are goats taking jobs from union workers?

A battle is brewing at Western Michigan University this summer between a group of hungry goats and a labor union.

The 400-member American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees has filed a grievance contending that the work the goats are doing in a wooded lot is taking away jobs from laid-off union workers.

"AFSCME takes protecting the jobs of its members very seriously and we have an agreed-upon collective bargaining agreement with Western Michigan," said Union President Dennis Moore. "We expect the contract to be followed, and in circumstances where we feel it's needed, we file a grievance."

The grievance alleges that the university did not notify the union that it was planning to use goat crews on campus, according to a chief steward report supplied to the Battle Creek Enquirer.

I think that the goats should start their own union!

They would but I've heard it's hard to get them to pay their union dues.

Do you think that these goats live in a nanny state?

Maybe not but I'll bet that they know someone who is.   :)
