The Doser remembers Joe the Plumber and wonders: What are: his rate of pay, his skill requirements, the length of his apprentice-ship, his retirement package, his benefits program, his immunities from being fired for inept work, the relative importance of his chores .... compared to an auto assembly line worker. It's time for the UAW to put something substantial in the auto-makers' "bail-out plan."
and in a slightly less judgmental note.....
What a victory! There were about 22 remaining California Condors in the 1980s. There has been an increase of almost 800% as a result of a nurturing program.
