Rural and older voters. They always vote and they always vote republican.

Urban and young voters stopped showing up in PA from after the 2012 general until, really, this past Nov. We'll see next May/Nov (2023) if they returned for good or if this past year was a flash in the pan.

Next years vote is for PA Supreme Court, Superior and commonwealth courts and the mayor of Philly.

It seems many of younger voters did show up thats why no red wave. Older voters have all day to vote on a work day. Younger ones in college or working tons of hours to get by dont have all day to stand in line. 2012 didnt have mail in and drop off boxed or early vote. They made it hard for younger people to vote and thats why we have idiots like pat tomey

This worries me horribly. Z's saved us and right outta the post election gate a Democratic President throws RR workers under the bus.

Someone on another thread for some reason said ' Well RR workers and their votes don't make up much of a percentage of the population ' , hence missing the point. Kids voted for everyone, not just to ensure they're personal demographic benefitted. Seems to me we got them out to effect change. And probably feel betrayed.

Right. All this because the railroads wont give their workers a few days of paid sick leave and a few days of unpaid sick leave.

You understand "record profits" during high inflation doesn't mean what you think it does. In two years we have 15% increase.


im_at_work_now t1_iym8tqt wrote

So they're seeing increased profits during high inflation periods, not tightening their belts.... And giving workers sick days is somehow problematic..?


Advanced-Guard-4468 t1_iym9cr6 wrote

Math made simple. If inflation is 15% and the companies increased profits by 8 to 10% (record profits) they still lost 5 to 7%.

The Railroads didn't have to negotiate in good faith if they knew congress was going to step in and cut a deal. You can bet the railroads knew the fix was in. They just had to drag it past the mid-term elections.


im_at_work_now t1_iymao94 wrote

Profits went up 8-10% over last year? Inflation is only 7% over last year. You should talk about their profit margins, not revenue vs inflation.


Advanced-Guard-4468 t1_iymb9cs wrote

Inflation over the last two years is up 15%


im_at_work_now t1_iymbz5m wrote

And how much are profits up over the last 2 years? 8-10% is the YOY figure.

Put another way.... In the first 3 months of this year alone, the rail industry made just shy of $22 BILLION in profits. The additional 7 sick days cost them $321 million for the whole year, or 80 million. With an m. Not a b.

80,000,000 / 22,000,000,000 = 0.0036

That's less than half of one percent of the profits

This all happened before inflation took off. They've been pulling in record profits by slashing their workforce so they don't have any redundancy to cover short notice sickdays. Its also a reason that a lot of the supply chain issues cropped up during 2020.

I'm sure you're right about that. I just think that looking only at the sick leave vote really buries the lede, which is that every democratic senator except 6 (7 if you count Bernie) and most of the Republicans voted bulldoze collective bargaining and force workers back to work.

Railroad collective bargaining comes second to the US economy. A strike at Starbucks does not disrupt every other industry.

the economy would be fine if the owners would just give these guys a few sick days.

He voted against the sick days. He knew the Senate would pass the contract bill (no matter which way he voted) with or without the sick days.

Therefore he was absolutely willing to force the workers to take a contract they didn't want.

This is just a "Fuck You" vote. You will notice that Cruz and Rubio did vote for the sick days. They wanted to get the workers what they need...but didn't want to force them to take the contract.

Similar to, say, Sanders or Hickenlooper, who voted in favor of the sick days but voted against the contract. That is an example of "wasn't going to force workers to take a contract they didn't agree with".

Toomey's "fuck you" vote was purely just that. A "Fuck you" to the working people and the democratic party.

Toomey is just a piece of shit that doesn't care about the workers or the economy or the american people. He got his, "fuck you" (not you reddit person, the royal you).

Congress shouldn’t be in the labor negotiation business. If Congress believes an industry is so vital to the nation that its workers cannot strike they need to enact a law similar to PA’s Act 111.

Unpopular take: pork barrel politics used to be the driver of bipartisanship, and it's kind of a bad thing that it's gone.

While not surprised about Toomey, I'm unsure of the inner workings of this issue. Are these workers allowed a large number of vacation or personal days that must be used if they call off sick? Seems unusual that rail work has a reputation as good employment, yet no sick time? Why would they fire experienced workers for being sick when they're begging for new hires? Why does this contract affect six different unions? Seems more complex than the headlines and articles, though I hit a paywall on this one.


106473 t1_iym76oo wrote

My friend works for bnsf, their sick days and personal time is so messed up it's actually quite sickening that they have to deal with it. They work of a strike system of every time they call off, even if it's for legitimate reasons.

So it is quite convoluted? Though I understand a need for reliable employees in an industry of this type, there should also be safety concerns involving sick people at posts involvingpublicsafety, aside from employee welfare.

IamSauerKraut t1_iymu6jr wrote

Personally think it is absurd for any employer to not provide sick time but rail workers are in a different category (along with firefighters and police) where being on the job is necessary beyond the employer's and employee's desire to make money. The sick time should have been voted in as part of any legislative resolution.


worstatit t1_iymvp3n wrote

Yes. Police and firefighters definitely are given sick time in every case I'm aware of.


NinjaLanternShark t1_iynpv4j wrote

If you want to know more, research "precision railroad scheduling" in your news outlets of choice. It's railroad's version of "just in time" manufacturing -- basically squeezing every dollar of value out of the railroad that you can.

This means if train A is scheduled to go from city B to city C, it absolutely positively can not be delayed, or the effects will keep rippling for days, because there's no margin or buffer at all.

That's why they're fighting sick days so hard. If someone calls out sick with no notice, it costs the railroad way more than the value of that person's salary for the day.

Of course, they could fix this by hiring more people, but, PRS is why sick days is such a sticking point.


reverendsteveii t1_iymiwau wrote

Fun fact: the vote was 52-43 in favor of giving the workers sick leave. When the vote is on whether to give the masters another unfunded tax break 51-49 is enough to pass it, but when a vote to do something for workers comes up and it's 52-43 the 43 wins. The game is rigged.
