Living in a Union Wonderland

Jack O'Cs fantasy world

One has to wonder what amazing planet all these union people hail from. It must be a wonderful place of plenty where nothing has a limit or has to be accounted for. Unfortunately Ireland is not this planet and while the public sector has taken a modicum of pain the private sector has felt the full chill of the North wind of recession.

I really wonder do the followers of these bearded prophets in the quiet moments when they are by themselves or lying in their beds not realise that the path they are being marched down will be one of disaster. If they maintain their wages at the current levels people will lose their jobs. I personally would feel that it is better to take a pay cut and ensure your fellow worker is still in a job next year.

Unfortunately logic and common sense doesn’t exist in a Union Wonderland. This year the bearded man is not Santa and he will not bear gifts.
