    McCurdy also said the current provincial response when fish plants close - a one-time stamp-up on a make-work project - is insulting to people who have spent a lifetime working on the floor of a fish plant.

    So if these people have spent a lifetime working and they have such a great union then I would assume that they have been paying into a pension or RRSP's set up by their collective bargaining process...if not then why do you have a union. This fishery is nothing more than a glorified EI stamp factory ...work for20 weeks and sit on your rear end and complain for the balence of the year how the government is screwing you over. If its not a good life the world is available to you to find better work......Im kind of sick of the taxpayer always having to bail out the workers when it is the plant owners who are making the millions and the union who is reaping in union dues ...for what?

    Another great job by the Williams Administration. The popularity just keeps on growing and growing, especially in rural NL.

    Cripes, I'm tired of seeing Earl's mug in the media every other week. Time for people to realize that the fishery can only sustain a finite number of fishermen, plants and plant workers.

    If you are unable to find anymore than a few weeks of work every bloody year, then guess what...you don't really have a job, you have a hoby which pays money.
