    Could be. They sure think alike. I actually had a chance to read about this today and noticed that IKEA had hired a law firm that specializes in keeping unions out.

    Maybe IKEA called Fred for guidance.

    He suggested the employees be classified as pilots.

    LOL. If IKEA has the gonads to try that, they might just get away with it. Furniture-makers are just as qualified to "fly" as truck drivers.

    Same here.

    IKEA can take their BS sweatshop back to Sweden.

    There's a thought, but gonna wait a month for the novelty to wear off. Nearest IKEA is 420 miles away.
