Yes! I've finally got the time to talk in detail about the pressing political-economic issues of today. Or something. Whatever.
Actually, I'll just be snotty. That's all an unhinged moonbat leftist such as myself is capable of anyway.
So, the first day of private garbage collection in Toronto wasn't all that auspicious of a debut it seems.
Jim Harnum had warned of “growing pains” delays this week and next as the company’s workers grapple with unfamiliar streets to the east.Now, if I were a right-wing fuck-face (as opposed to a lefty faggot who didn't think Saddam Hussein had WMDs but who does think that global warming is being caused by industrial carbon emissions) I'd genuinely believe whatever glib generalities came into my head.
“It’s just new. Everything is new,” Harnum said Tuesday afternoon. “There are new operators, new trucks. We cautioned everybody that when you take on 165,000 new houses, it’s not done easily. We knew that it would be slow, and we’ll get better each day — the contractor will get better each day. But it was to be expected, and we didn’t want anyone to have any false hopes that Day 1 would be exactly the same as the last day of in-house operation.”
"If this was the public sector this wouldn't have happened. When your re-election is determined by how well you deliver, you'd take the time to instruct your workforce in all these no-brainer, so-called 'growing pains' long before the first truck rolled out that morning."
"If they had a well-paid, unionized workforce this would never have happened. If your wage is worth it, you'll work much harder and much smarter. This is what you get for treating your workers like shit."
It's a cultural thing. Right now, the hegemony is with the morons who blather about the inherent virtues and perfections of the private sector and who see any and all failure of the public sector as preordained. Just thought I'd take 15 minutes today to swim against the tide.
