My early experience of having a blue collar job myself is where my views on this particular topic come from. I don't believe for one minute that anyone would have lost their job merely for failing to attend a political event in their free time. Not in the Land of We Will Sue For Any Reason However Stupid.

It just smells like so much blue collar BS and bitching to me. And that`s coming from someone that started out in a working-class family, with a low-grade, low-paid working-class job. The only reason I`ve done better for myself these days, some 23 years later, is that I didn`t spend my time bitching about non-events like this guff when I had the opportunity to do so, and instead got off my arse and worked for what I wanted to achieve.

@MacGuffin,

I generally find you make a lot of sense but you are dead wrong here. If you live in a company town your ability to support your family is en prise to the company. That's why we invented unions.



I`m as liberally left as they come. In my first two years out of school, aged 16, I used to work in the Shipyards on the Clyde in a menial job. Only later did I go to University and make something of my life. I now run my own company.

No offence, LJ, but guys that do blue collar work don`t need much of an excuse to down tools in my experience. And they need don`t need much encouragement to bitch about it afterwards. They`re typically decent guys individually. But, as a collective, they do some pretty stupid and counter-productive things, then have a propensity for blaming everyone else for the blowback of their collective group decisions.
