    I understand why a business owner/slave driver like you oppose the union but I dont get it when a fellow hvac tech bashes organized labor for the sake of it, there is no better place for a worker than the union, having a legal binding contract between employer and employees spelling out our pay and benefits is priceless, working union there is no " cant give you a raise cause my wife got her boobs done".

    Thank god!!!!! Now maybe I will get to spend a LITTLE more time in Wisco. It's a good company, its got its pros and cons just like every job, but the pros far outweigh the cons. A lot of freedom and a lot of work (especially down in Illinois) so really not alot to complain about. Welcome aboard.

    The reality is, that your work vehicle represents free transportation to and from work....something that most American workers do not enjoy.

    So, yes, it IS a form of income. Unless, as some stated, your work day starts when you leave your house and ends when you arrive at it.

    Agreed, although it seemed really backwards and screwed up at first, when you actually sit down and think about it, 15 dollars really isn't anything. If you were to drive 20 miles to work each day with your personal vehicle, you would spend more than that in gas, plus wear and tear on your personal vehicle. At the end of the day its less than an hours worth of labor so if it bothered me that much I would just work an extra half hour each week and call it good. Laws are laws and I can't blame a company for following them, especially if there is potential for the IRS to come at me years down the road and charge me a lump sum for all the weeks I didn't pay it in the past.

    Trucks are part of the business and there is no business without them, if it was a luxury vehicle then I can understand and justify a charge.

    is the IRS going to ask employees to pay the lease on the building the company occupies?

    No, I won't accept anything, but the fact is there are some things you just don't have a choice with and unfortunately when it comes to the IRS there is really no negotiating... It just is what it is, and there is no point in getting bitter about it, just accept it and take it for what it is because at the end of the day 15 bucks a week really is nothing for me to gripe about, if I don't like it then I guess I will find a job where they don't offer me a company vehicle. Not to mention I knew about the 15 dollars before I started so I figured it in when I told them what I needed to make with no issues.

    Exactly. It's all in your point of view. A healthy viewpoint makes for a much less stressful life. It's $15. a week for a ride to and from work. Depending on your family/lifestyle, it might even allow you to have one less personally owned vehicle in the driveway.
