Ah.... Another Right Wing Wacko with "Union Envy".
RWWs, because they don't have the courage and convictions necessary to organize and fight for their families' welfare, prefer to beg from their corporate masters like serfs to their feudal kings.
They are so jealous of union members enjoying higher wages, better benefits, nice pensions and job security, they just don't have the intestinal fortitude to fight for their rights. Serfdom is their lot in life.
Union membership is down because the corporate masters and their Right Wing Wackos serfs have joined forced to create "Right to Starve States".
Now the Right Wing Wackos get to starve.
We union members will continue to enjoy our decent wages, pensions, and benefits.
An interesting quote from a pretty good book (no need to name, the anticipated respondents will jump on the author, whom I happen to know):

"Free trade weakened labor unions' monopolies on the supply of labor for industries such as steel, auto manufacturing, and airlines and limited the wage premiums they collected from consumers. THE HIGHER PAY OF UNION JOBS REPRESENTS NOTHING MORE THAN AN UNFAIR TAX ON CONSUMERS (caps are mine). Higher priced goods that cover the higher cost of union labor transfer money from poorer non-union consumers to highly paid union labor. This transfer has never been economically sustainable without government mandated labor laws and closed trade borders that prevent non-union competition. If some manufacturers can shift a portion of their manufacturing to lower cost non-union suppliers...then prices will fall to match the lower cost of labor. Consumers benefit from lower prices. In the 1970s and 1980s, foreign competition gained a toehold in the markets. Prices fell and consumers captured the savings. The United States only lost high paying union jobs because unions lost their ability to tax consumers."

Imagine that, moving production to lower cost producers...

Wouldn't someone that wanted to "treat" all better, be for lower cost products? Are the union workers "paying" their fair share?

Hmmm...

Tell that to the families of the dead men. Men left to fend for themselves. What if it happened to your son?

And tell that to the thousands of groups filing lawsuits with the IRS. Tell that to the lawyers working pro bono.

Besieged with scandals, the White House today released "President" Obama's high school prom photo. According to an administration spokesperson, Americans will be able to see Obama as a regular guy and one who did not have any knowledge relative to any of the current investigations.

There aren't enough photos in his family album to make me view this man as a "regular guy"- he feasted on dog meat as a Muslim Indonesian & stupid enough to joke about it to a shocked audience.... No, ain't nothing about this President says, "regular guy" -

We already played that one.

After we connected the dots we saw a picture of a corrupt and greedy Republican party spreading propaganda and working for the highest bidders with no thought or consideration for average american citizens whatsoever.

That's what you get when you connect the dots.

Guess who HE is??!!! LMAO!!!

Now let's think about this --

Would Bain Capitol be pro or anti union?

Union contracts might interfere with firing people for no reason before you send their jobs off to Indonesia.

On the other hand, Union Contracts might make it harder to fire people, loot the company, and claim bankruptcy and cash in the pension accounts.

So.. Bain union or anti-union?

Gee that's a head-scratcher.
