This shows wages from $15-$22 an hour, with most around $17.

That's quite a bit different than $28.

Ah young grasshopper that is not the correct wages anymore. They have upped them 2xs now. Selection starts at $28. And that's the average starting point for maintenance department now also. Before the whole covid19 crap it was less than $17. Selection started at $15 and maintenance was $18. Only been here 7+ yrs now and worked my way up through the maintenance department to where I'm at now. PM me if you are curious about what I make.

And what is wrong with $15-$22 an hour troutbert? That falls right were all your liberal, leftist, socialist buddies say it should be for people to make a livable wage, right? $15 and hour min wage makes everyone happy, correct? Or have the goal posts changed?

There is a cost in hiring and training new employees. IMO it benefits both the employer and the employee to reward longevity.
Absolutely right! New hires are not performing the same amount of work as the veteran employees. So far as equal pay for equal work goes, if everyone starts at a lower wage that old hires did, that is equality. In addition higher pay for veteran employees is a reward for loyalty.

the General Electric locomotive division is right here in Erie. the union went on strike years ago. one of the reasons was that the union wanted new hires to make what senior employees made. GE wanted them to start around 18.00 or 20 an hr (?) and continue to work their way up.
GE decided to sell out to WABTEC (westinghouse air brake technologies), the senior employees kept their wages, a lot of folks retired to lock in their pension and new hires start out lower than senior employees....a lot of things changed and if i remember right, people got laid off....i think it was right around 800 employees and i think those pay offs were permanent.

Well Kellogs brought in a couple busses of replacement workers to carry on. It could be a long strike and the dummies probably won't gain nearly what they are losing by striking.

yep...and don't forget the employees were asked to contribute some to their own health insurance too...

But the GE issues weren't only union related....they also gave China and Kazakhstan the rights to start building their own locomotives.....2 of GEs biggest customers back 20 years ago

GE's. a buddy of mine just retired from there. they have had people in from India and other nations for years learning how to build locomotives. they were going to build a locomotive plant in India, i dont know if that actually happened or not.

It did. ...India was more of a built parts supplier..same with Mexico

GEs idea..China was one of GEs biggest locomotive clients. The Erie plant built 10 high altitude locomotives for China ..and if I'm not mistaken, a couple were at different stages of the build (for China to finish)..then gave them the prints. This was back in the early 2000s
