Default What should today's new thread be about?

Why did my autocorrect suggest an apostrophe in today's. Seems weird. Is today a "person" does each day get granted personhood in some weird divine shickannery... I noticed that autocorrect wants to capitalize the first letter of months names too as if the months where some sort of diefic personas.

That mafia link was interesting. Our workplace (non government) is up for an EBA this year.

Here is a quote from the site.
Quote:
Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management.
That is pretty scary (from my limited understanding), the tl;dr is you guys are on ya own and its all for the good of the country (whatever that is now).

My dumbarse workmates ensure we only have ≈55% union membership.
They say nothing will change! And don't join the union.
The reason why nothing changes is we walk into our negotiations with <55% membership and management has a lil lol and says here is the EBA (that we feel comfortable accepting).
Cyas in 4 years.

But the gays/trans and athiests are wrecking the world. /S

A unionised wood mill within 2hrs drive has virtually 99% union subscription. That site similar to us got 8% rise for the next 3 yrs.

We are very similar and we will be lucky with our 55% subs to get 2.5% - 3.5%.

On another note, were I ceo of a largeish corp id plant a few disgruntled employees (that get payed xtra for the gruntling) to sow dissent amongst my employees.
Unions cost money!
Nothing ever changes anyways.
Yeah here here. Purple Monkey Dishwasher...

Bloody mafioso.

Why is there no possessive apostrophe in ‘its’?

Imo it’s more like ‘Rogean’s” than it is ‘his’. Its deserves its possessive apostrophe.

English is very confusing even for "its" native speakers. 🤦
