EVERY job should be Unionized! UNIONS built the Middle Class in the USA, and gave us 40-hr week, 8-hr day, worker safety regs, etc.
Notice that the miners who died a few years in the Sego mine in WV were non-Union! ALWAYS the case!

Those of you who support the bosses are traitors to the USA people.

Get with the times , Grandma.

Michigan voters showed up at the polls on 11/6 and DEFEATED the "Save our Jobs" Proposal Two amendment to the states' constitution , which would have extended collective bargaining rights to more public and private sector workers. This was in MICHIGAN , not Texas or Florida.

In June 2012 , voters in San Diego and San Jose voted overwhelmingly to deny public sector unions increased collective bargaining powers , and to limit /curtail public financing of their pension programs.. We're talking CALIFORNIA , not Alabama.

Scott Walker easily survives recall efforts in left-leaning WISCONSIN , with voters approving of his efforts to curtail the power of the states' public sector unions.

Unions are going the way of parachute pants and the afro. You're gonna be shit outta luck here soon , comrade.

After Hostess announced Friday that a protracted labor union battle would force it to close its factories, many red-blooded Americans cowered in fear over the extinction of their beloved Twinkies, Zingers and Ho Hos.

Twinkie junkies are still in luck, however: Boxes are already selling on eBay.

One box of Twinkies has a starting bid of $49.99, with a “buy it now” price of $89.99.

The description on the item (read as urgently as if you were reading the Titanic disaster telegram):“HOSTESS IS GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SO GET THESE WHILE YOU CAN. STORES ARE ALREADY SEEING THESE FLY OFF THE SHELVES AND SOON YOU WILL PAY A PREMIUM FOR THESE.”

A box of Ho Hos is being sold for $59.99, while a 48-pack of Zingers is going for $43.

One trickster claims to have “the last Twinkie in the heartland” and the single dessert has a starting bid of $50, but you can buy it right now for $5,235.

Other sellers are taking more modest approaches with starting bids from $11 to $15.

The best eBay listing so far comes from a seller who wants to give away his last 10-count box of Twinkies for $595 – but there’s a catch: There are only four cakes left because the seller “got into them this morning.” But how can you go wrong with an expiration date of 12-02-2057?

Save it. The person who shared what he did when I asked about that tragedy, well his grandfather was a past President of the UWAE so I think he knows a little more than you do, fckwit, about the mining industry and who/who doesn't wish to be unionized. If you knew anything about the industry, you would know that mining is most listed as the most dangerous occupation and every time they enter a mine there's the potential that they may not make it home. Unionized or not. The miners are a unique group of people and not as you seem to believe to be all of the same point of view. Again, you obviously don't know squat because all miners don't want to be unionized for various reasons. Why don't you GFYS about the coal industry in that you are just like that POS in the White House who has declared war on the coal industry as he wastes billions of tax payer dollars to throw at green energy companies that have gone bankrupt or are failing.
You just that monster in the White House sure love to push unions and using the coal miners ... while in the same breath declaring war upon the industry.
Here ya go...
Coal miners outraged by Obama add...

Yeah, you hang with corporate parasites, traitors to the USA people, the fascists who keep the country sucking. And their opinion is worth what? LOL... they speak only in their own parasitic interests.

I know very well what goes on in the coal industry, and I know its history of perfidy and treason. Coal companies are scum. They trash the environment, destroy workers, and then claim it's God's will or whatever.“That's business...” LOL!!!

yeah, that's the TROUBLE with business!

Blair Mt was not fought for nothing, and there will be more. This country's capitalist parasites, Romney's friends, people like you, are headed for an inevitable fall. Obama's re-election was only the beginning...

"President Obama's stranglehold on the union vote seems to be diminishing from the 2008 levels.

For the first time ever the UMWA will not be supporting a candidate in the presidential election.

The United Mine Workers of America enthusiastically supported Barack Obama's presidential campaign in 2008, but this year the union and its disgruntled members don't plan to back Obama's re-election bid.

Caputo told National Journal he couldn't remember a time when the UMWA — with more than 100,000 members in 2008, the last year the union updated its numbers — did not endorse a presidential candidate.

Obama's GOP opponent Mitt Romney has been claiming that Obama's Environmental Protection Agency is waging war on coal with too many regulations.

"Our members count on coal-fired power plants and burning of coal to keep jobs," Caputo said. "We're a very Democratic union and we try to listen to the rank and file. They've sent a clear message that they're not supportive of the environmental rules that are being put in place."

"Throughout Appalachia where Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia converge, the coal industry's disgruntlement with Obama is plastered on yard signs and billboards."

One billboard near the West Virginia-Pennsylvania border, sponsored by a coal-industry group, tells drivers they are entering "the Obama administration's no jobs zone."

In a close election year, the loss of these 100,000 voters and their families and friends could have an effect on the outcome in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia."

Well, you can blame the company, who insisted on treating their workers like crap! They wouldn't pay a decent wage, and the workers refused to accept it. GOOD for the workers.
Let this be a lesson to corporate America... the time is coming when you listen to the workers or WE WILL SHUT YOU DOWN!!!
¡UNIÓN para SIEMPRE!
Let's see a ripple effect on LABOR!!!¡HUELGA!¡PODER a los OBREROS!
They treated their workers like crap?

And your proof is??????????

Can you provide me with the prevailing wage in the area for all these plants that were shutdown , so we can do some comparison and see how underpaid these people were?

You can't?........Didn't think so.

These people , with their union goons egging them on , mispalyed their hand.

Instead of being reasonable and getting "something from something" , they rolled the dice and ended up with "everything from nothing". Unemployed heading into the holidays. Let's see how much their union does for them , in terms of job search , retraining , etc.

They won't do a fucking thing for them , that's what.

I bet none of these people ever join a union again after this debacle , and it's sad they had to leran the hard way.

Might I add you filthy POS, it was Rev Phelps who stated that it was God's will that the tragedy happened at the one mine in that according to the good Rev's merry band of freaks they said it was because "God hates f**s" that those miners were killed.

Trust me, I would pay a king's ransom to see you run your mouth in the company of some people who you think that you represent. Things would not bode well for you.

Hell of a time to strike. CEO's go home with money and the workers are out of a job! Our next recession will soon be under way if Obammy dosen't quit pending money we do not have. The big corporate and small business orgnizations are alreay preparing to cut out workers due to the expense of Obamacare.

And this is the first time the FOP didn't endorse a candidate. They didn't endorse Romney due to collective bargaining rights but at the same rate, there's no love loss between those in Law Enforcement and Obama. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that liberals are no friends of Law Enforcement. So no surprise that you would regard them as worthless.

"National Police Union FOP refuses to endorse a candidate, 1st such refusal in 98 years.

The FOP supported the Republican candidate for President in 2008, 2004, and 2000.

In recent presidential elections, the group’s backing has been much sought after because of the heavy concentration of law enforcement officers in several of the key states. The group counts 39,225 members in Pennsylvania alone and another 24,181 in Ohio and 19,912 in Florida."

That pro-company propaganda is flimsy. Why should we have a society where bosses have endless excuses to abuse workers (as in underpay them) and the workers are supposed to have no recourse? F that. UNION!!! Unions made this country free. Companies and the govt have been militating against Union power since 1950.
Perhaps with the awakening consciousness represented by the re-election of Obama, we will also see a resurgent workers movement!
¡Con Unión se vive MEJOR!
The average hostess manufacturing worker made $17/hour in 2011... nearly $5/hour more than the national average for that field. As with many other things, the development of unions was honorable, but since we are a rather narcissistic society, people are interested in their own interests and often have absolutely no clue about how businesses are run. The demands of the union workers could not possibly work with a company so far in the red. Your comment on the awakening consciousness brought on by Obama's second term is a bit disturbing too....Do you believe that Obama should be the default CEO of private corporations? If so, what if it were, say, George Bush? Should this power only be given to presidents who you agree with? If your position is that the federal government should regulate the income potential in private businesses, the companies will simply move overseas to more business friendly countries. No easy solutions here...the company fell because the economy is spiraling out of control and people have not been buying too many twinkies. Oh, and unions did not make this country free. Capitalism made this country better than most (although not entirely free), but relies on the idea that people are ethical, which is becoming an increasingly erroneous supposition. Unions were developed as it was realized that employers are not always ethical. Which is great - only members of unions are not always ethical either.

Default CEO? What?

What I want to see is strong Union movement, I want an end to the corporate hegemony engendered by Reaganomics, I want the workers to have power, I want the 1% to pay for their goddam party.

Capitalists oppressed the bulk of the USA people, treated them like crap, maintained children in sweatshops, kept farmers broke, factories were hell.

UNIONS brought freedom, a decent life for the workers. Your Hamiltonian rhetoric is BS.
