liberals love affair with unions is just like the conservative love affair with the "good ole days". it always seems better than it really was.
Real wages and treatment have gone down, unquestionably. And, as I said before, not coincidentally with the decrease in the influence of unions.
Right to Work has nothing to do with choice and everything to do with helping businesses increase the margin reflected in that chart.
i saw a gentleman on tv the other day that supported the right to work legislation, when the announcer asked him if he was going to leave the union he said no. he cited that he wouldnt leave the union he worked for because they negotiated his wages and he didnt have a problem with them. there is corruption in unions and people should have the right to chose.
So many people seem to have forgotten about this....
So, now the unions get to run the companies? Is that how it works? Notice they werent closing a plant and cutting jobs, they were opening one in a very attractive coastal state and adding workers to the economy. But the NLRB gets that whine in their ear from the union, and all of a sudden, the government is not only telling a private company how to run its business, but where.
Yeah, them unions....looking out for the workers, by denying other people jobs.
And as far as non union workers benefitting from the unions sacrifices, they also suffer from government sacrifices to the union coffers. Unions were beneficial before there was a OSHA, before there was a NLRB, before the minimum wage and before the courts were opened to all kinds of litigation. Unions only purpose now is to serve the union, not the worker
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
