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!

Why are unions on the decline?

Postby NC » Sat Dec 01, 2012 10:51 am

Union's are standing in small groups holding hands trying to figure out why they are loosing membership and why the young have no interest in their "cause". Here's a news piece that is one small bit of the reason:

In the United States union finaincials are available for revue, so at least they get caught doing it.

Union Corruption 2012: Big Labor’s Federal Rap Sheet.
America’s labor unions have amassed quite a federal rap sheet in 2012. According to the Justice Department, union officials nationwide have been arrested for or convicted of embezzlement, extortion, bribery, racketeering, money laundering, fraud, and witness tampering so far this year.

Addressing "Why are unions on the decline" Thsi video captures it perfectly. People ask me why I don't use my real name on this site. Check it out, intimidation, coercion, punching, death threats, "he's got a gun!" being shouted... Back to the question: "Why Are Unions On The Decline"... I cannot imagine...

Watch this video, it was just made.
