FIMF should be an acronym for First I Must Find my brain before I post. I never said unions wereRead Morehum an. However, they are composed of human beings. I'm currently teaching my students about the age of progressivism when unions first came into being and worked towards making workers' lives better.They advocated for things like the eight hour workday and put child labor laws into practice. Perhaps I should just tell my students that this eta in history was a black spot. Perhaps I should just skip that chapter. Regardless, I really don't care about the union. I repeat myself again. What I care about are the 27 men and women who are about to be put out of jobs! Someone has to drive those buses. I don't understand why we have to replace members of the Central Regional "Family". You see, I really bought into the "We are CR" campaign, and I believe that those drivers are part of the CR family. I don't know about you, but I don't like the idea of throwing members of the family out and bringing in outsiders. Anyone who knows me knows that I have little or nothing to do with any union matter. I tend to just let the majority do their thing, keep my head down, and concentrate on the job I am paid to do. However, I care deeply about people. What a ridiculous statement to make that unions are not human.

For the record, I have no affiliation or even passing friendship with any of the drivers. I couldRead Moren ot name one and would not recognize one of them if I ran into them on the street . Union or no union, friendship or none,. I can still care about and speak up for what I feel is right and wrong. What is wrong with the world today that so many of you are so indifferent , snide, or downright callous? I hope you never find yourselves in similar situations.
