I think we should also ban those slime ball Temp-Job Agencies too, companies use them to avoid paying a working wage w/benefits.

Shitttty companies like Wal-Mart that have a point system designed knowing almost no one will make it out of the probationary period. 5 mins late a few time and catch the flu this winter? "sorry you're fired apply again in 6 months".

This allows them a revolving door of workers they never have to give raises or benefits.

Yeah those temp agencies are like fly on shit in the tech field. Multiple times they will promise you the world, but then as soon as you ask them for anything, crickets from the peanut gallery. As long as they can steal all they can, they couldnt care less. They are literally modern day slave traders.

We use temp agencies for low skilled labor where 30% of the people don't even show up after their week of paid training.

The main advantage from a recruiting aspect seems to be that when people are sacks of shit, we don't have to follow an HR process of documentation (6 months minimum to fire someone who ceases to give a fuck) to get rid of them, and we don't have to worry about the frivolous discrimination lawsuits when we do fire them.

We hire the good people in full time. Temps let us trial people. The agencies charge us more than 30% of the person's pay. That is a lot of money and we don't take it lightly.

Unions is what we need. Not blue shithead unions involved in modern 'politics'. Unions that will vote in leaders regardless of party, and preferably third-party as a big middle finger to our current chucklefuck 'leaders'.

The solution isn't to 'burn down the system' like college dumbfucks and hippies talk about, but to entirely replace the system--without permission or going through official channels. Just drop out, tune out, and elect and build organizations that use the mass of human non-compliance as a giant fuck you to authoritarian shitheads throwing their weight around.

In other words, we can throw our weight around too.

Have you ever tried to stop the tide?

Yeah, we're that tide. And I'll tell you what, the tide is coming in.

That's a great idea. Guilds, the historical predecessor to unions, used to be a guarantor of member quality, not a protector of incompetence. It was once the case in many professions that if you screwed up the union was the first place that fired you. The company may or may not have fired you after that.

Edit: I meant if, not off

Umm Ex Walmart worker here, did 2 years. Handbook states you can be up to 15 minutes late without it being a tardy. I was 15 minutes late everyday.

You got lucky. My store had a solid 5 minute late policy; Anything more than 5 minutes late, and you were given a point and lost half an hour of pay.
