I heard that SBC employees may be going on strike... My ahole brother in law (Yeah, Alvarez, I'm talkin about you) said that there is a dispute about the employees having to pay around $40 a month for their health insurance when it was formally free. BTW, he makes about 60K a year being an inbound phone operator here in El Paso which is insane... So whats the dealio, since I haven't heard any news about it? Kinda makes you think of how useful a union shop is in todays society. I wonder if it will have macro consequences considering that I see a possible oil squeeze coming whose inflationary pressures may force Greenspan to act before the election. Do yall think this is OPEC imposing their agenda into our election cycle by cutting quotas into a recovering economy?
