The reason I respect it is because it stands up to the miserly politicians who have to have their arms twisted before they realize that firefighting is dangerous work and carries high potential for diseases like lung cancer, etc, for instance. The FF union doesn't nitpick about much. And if you don't think firefighters deserve what they get I kinda hope that at least you have enough respect for them after they risk their a$$es to save your a$$ and house if that event come around.
It might shock you to learn that most private sector workers have no pension plan at all and the minority who do have plans that are on average worth less than 30% of yours for the same contribution levels. Instead of 50 acres in the Kooteneys, too many of these unpensioned guys get to work 10-20 years longer than you and get not 50 acres but 50 square feet in a rooming house. But keep pitching to the gullible left wingers out there.
It might shock you to learn that a lot of those are simple pencil pushers without the hazards that firefighters encounter. Lots of those public servants also live longer than firefighters.
- I won't bother replying to the rest of your silliness
Yeah right. What's the rest of the emotional claptrap in your post for then?
For someone who claims to be a member of mensa, you sure as frack don't seem too f'n bright. And for someone who came here and used a pretense of being above calling people names, you sure seem to do a lot of it.
