The point is that there are plenty of careers and places to live in this country that aren't union. So yeah, if you want to be in the service industry and want to live in Las Vegas... you will have to join a union. But there's no law that says you have to do EITHER ONE. It's up to you where you live and what you do. Take some personal responsibility for your career choices and where you choose to live, is all I'm saying. The information is out there. The bylaws are clear. Don't blame someone else because you didn't know you couldn't join the NYPD without being in a union.
And the "you can move somewhere you dont have to join a union to work" argument? Really? You just accept the intolerable and move on? I wonder where you would have stood during Brown v. BOE or the civil rights marches. "Oh hey, it's their choice to live in a south that represses them. They know what it is down there, they should move if they don't like it"
I had high hopes for you going into this discourse. It saddens me to say, you are lacking...........
So i would guess you could make the assumptions at unions being the single biggest and most powerful special interest, but that is just my opinion.
What i hate about it is they try to classify anyone against them as anti-worker. I am a manager at a non union business, but rest assured i am "pro worker".
I feel workers should not have their rights trampled on, but let's be real here, unions are into so much stuff they shouldn't be and we even have to put up with public employee unions here.
My feelings on public unions? The same as FDR's, who is considered the father of the modern day labor movement...people don't like to discuss his feelings on this, because it doesn't fit their agenda.

lol @ using Breitbart as some sort of accurate news source. That's like a Dem using Mother Jones to back up their point.
LOL at scoffing at the idea that knowledge is invalidated because you don't approve of the source. Of course, i also posted a link from CNN earlier today so how to explain that? hmmmmmmmmm
Just read it and absorb it or dont, but dont dismiss it because you dont like where it came from.
