There are costs in negotiating and enforcing a contract. Ensuring a safe working environment and lobbying for remedies to work related problems takes time and money. Protecting against management abuses of power such as nepotism and favoritism requires oversight. No reasonable person believes that each individual is better off bearing the burden of these tasks themselves.
Don't fool yourself, non-union workplaces use models developed through union efforts and non-union workplaces also benefit from the competitive salaries generated by union contracts.
Its naive to say unions have outlived their usefulness.
You are stating the ideal but ignoring the reality. Today, Unions are simply political operatives for the Left. As long as they keep the worker out of the loop and clueless, they can easily pursue their political desires as a Fifth Column for the likes of the Boy Messiah. MSM stands shoulder-to-shoulder with them, too.

What has changed here, is that the workers are wising up and want a choice. The Socialists are fighting this and want to keep union "members" in the dark and off the screen. Just keep paying those monthly dues, though.

Yes, unions have outlived their original mandate and have drifted off into pursuits of Socialism. Americans are weary of this. Almost half of America now supports RTW laws to clean up the Jimmy Hoffa legacy and get politics out of the workplace.

It seems to me, caring for our mentally ill should be a bigger priority than gun control.
"Is shooting 18 children an over reaction?". Wtf does that mean? You've lost it.
Judges long ago released the mentally ill from involuntary confinement in institutions, for better or worse.

Many of them are what are now called "the homeless."

I just got through watching Obama try to shed some crocodile tears about the tragedy in Connecticutt. Will this fraud ever show himself as who he really is?
It was a hospital in Chicago. A baby had survived an abortion and was crying while laying near the operating table. It was so disturbing to the operating room staff that the doctor in charge ordered a nurse to remove the baby from the operating room and put it in a closet until it died. Eight hours later the baby died from the injuries it received during the abortion.
This so disturbed some members of the Illinois legislature that a bill was drafted making it a crime to murder a baby that survived an abortion.
Yup. You guessed it. Obama uttered the most useless word that commonly comes out of his mouth: "present".
Now, he pretends to want to cry over the tragedy in Connecticutt. Crocodile tears.
This weekend probably 15 people will be murdered in the city of Chicago alone. This has been going on for decades. From the beginning of the Iraq war to the end about 4000 Americans were killed. During that exact same time in Chicago, over 3800 people were murdered. Chicago is as bad as a full-scale war, and I never heard any phoney liberal cry about that.
If the tragedy in Connecticutt upsets any of you fraudulent liberal Democrats here, I've got a suggestion for you. Just pretend the innocent children killed were killed by abortion. It's the same thing.
The last thing I want to hear after a tragedy like this is someone who is responsible for millions of innocent children killed pretend to cry about it.
You are a FOUR STAR IDIOT!! I can't believe your using using a tragedy like this to forward your political views! You suck!! like ALL rich white racist republicans!!! BAN GUNS NOW!!! NOT TOMORROW, NOT AFTER LUNCH..NOW!!!!

Money doesn't do much for mental illness when you can't force people to accept treatment.

Maybe Obamacare will solve the problem, just as all others.

Touch the sick and heal their bodies. Touch the hopeless and the helpless and speak words of encouragement to their minds, body, spirit and souls. Father your people are in need of strength and direction, Lord be a strong tower and a compass for your people today Lord. In the name of Jesus. Amen

Unions don't protect incompetent workers, they want the bad eggs out of the work environment more than management does. What unions do is insure due process as guaranteed in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Surely you don't object to that, do you?

You sound like Obama 2016 with false teeth.

Unions are notorious for protecting bad eggs. Knock it off.

How can you speak of unions when scores of kindergarten children were massacared by a NRA gun nut. You are such an ignorent douche. If their were more unions and less guns American would be a better place. If there were more people of color and less old white men in congress America would be better place.
