So, there I was was last week walking into the mens room with one of my fellow union members. He was complaining about how much his union dues were and how he wasnt certain if he would be able to pay them. So, I told him that there is a little secret that we keep amoung ourselves that was put into place the help union brothers out in need. I didnt know how to tell him this straight forward without blushing, so I told him a little story that I hoped would help him get the "Hint". I told him that I had found a genie bottle once before and rubbed it. When the genie came out he said " I can only grant you one of two options. A better memory or a biggger dick." My fellow union buddy asked me what my response was. I told him " I dont remember". So needless to say, knowing he liked big dicks and was broke, he no longer has to worry about paying his dues and is now a member our secret club. True story!!

"But I'm an American, boo hoo hoo"

Bla bla bla. I'm not anti-capitalsim. But pay attention and maybe you will learn something. Unions were formed to offset the imbalance of wealth in this country. I'm not saying every union is nesssesary or right now. But I am saying if you get what you're demanding you'll be sorry. I agree that spoiled workers are often lazy workers. But on the same token happy workers are the best employees. It's a fine line to walk but if the balance isn't kept, you will end up with either over powerful capitalists or spoiled lazy workers. Unions are not all bad.

Remember to two fat slobs sitting in front of the Taco Bell with the big rat. I swear I saw them both recently eating there. I wonder if they brought some back for the rat?

A union built home was done by SKILLED labor not some guy that yesterday was working at mcdonalds and today decided to swing a hammer. This thread is funny ! The ones who complain the most are the tards that are not smart enough to get in a union in the first place. After all there is a test to become union that requires you to be able to read.

There is nothing wrong with unions.NOTHING.The problem lies with unions that are 100% funded wit tax dollars.NOT THE CARPENTERS,FITTERS,BOILERMAKER S.MINES,WHATEVER GO JOIN A UNION .everything has its pluses and minses.When one group is funded to the point that they have the ultimate say so of the pay and benifits of the group that fund them now lets all be honest nothing good can ever come of it.There is nothing wrong with NON TAXPAYER FUNDED UNIONS.Plese do not use any comparison of anything that has to do with economy,economicsjobs,how much money people made during the 50s and 60s.After ww2 when the whole world for the most was doing nothing but rebuilding just exactly where was the world supposed to buy things from?Russia?Get a clue the U.S. was the only place on the planet to buy anything of value.Com e on man.

I can go either way with this. I think unions started out as a good, needed organizations, but ended up like Social Security, which is the idea began getting abused. This is particularly shown if public sector unions. I'm all about good wages, and benefits to all workers, but what happens when all the systems that supported them can no longer afford it?

I disagree. Not all union builders are as skilled as you describe and I've known many non union builders who were very skilled.

UNIONS CREATE A SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT

Union guys walk around thinking they deserve as much income as the guys in suit and ties with college degrees. They think "that guys isn't any better than me". Well guess what you had your chance to get an education and you Chose not to.

The guy in the suit and tie IS better than you, get over it. You screwed up, pay the price and deal with it.

Here end of lesson.

LOL my goodness you get angry easy. I was simply disagreeing. I wasn't rude about it I didn't call you names....

Here's what you said,

Pay close attention you gave a description here. If a union built home was done by skilled labor, then you described union workers as "skilled labor." You made no exceptions. I, however disagree with that blanket description. Sure there are some very skilled union employees but just because it's a "union built house, doesn't meant it was built by skilled labor.

AND........
It was also implied in your DESCRIPTION, that nonunion workers all come from McDonald's and decide to swing a hammer. You made the implications my friend. I just happen to disagree.

Deal with it.

Oh and thanks for reading.:)

Instead of complaining, why don't you go join a union and make your voice heard in the middle class of America. Stand up and get the pay and benefits you deserve for the work you do. Don't get paid less for a job well done.

Dear Educated, and let it be said I highly doubt you are. I think it is actually you who feels entitled or perhaps pissed off about union workers making less money than you. You suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Look it up honey and get some help. Don't hate on the hard working union workers cause they make much more money than you!

Seems to be more and more uneducated people on the subject of Unions. Unions are a good thing and everyone should be a part of one.
