Noted, Mimi
So, it started a sort of war between the compagnies.
It will most probably mean, that pickers will try to pick for the ones, that pay the most, won't it?

Ohhhh. That's the problem, then. Under Bush's dictatorship, these idiots have assumed that the Constitution no longer applies to anything.

Workers of the world, incorporate! Start your own business, sell your wares at a lower price than your former employer, and put them out of business. I fully support free enterprise - for all. Let the slave laborers start their own business. Make everyone a corporation and compete. Boycott global corporations.
