As stated before, I hold a job and belong to a union. In my eyes, I've received absolutely nothing from the union. I (just like the other sheep), quietly pay my dues and work very hard. I appreciaye my job, and my co-workers. I just don't buy into the myth that the union has my interests at heart. I haven't seen one good thing that they've done. I go to the meetings, I vote, I do my job with outstanding results; but, at the end of the day, all I see the union doing is taking $ from my check and defending the slackers around me. Go union!

I know toyota and other plants/factories very well. Toyota is non-union. All the workers there are making a very good wage, work good shifts, with good pay for the hours required of them, and seem to enjoy the working environment that's been created for them. I just wish there could be more of these jobs come to our area. Wonder how that could happen? Seems like non-union jobs pay the same, have good benefits, reasonable workload, safe conditions. Remind me why we need unions again?

Take away unions and there's no good wage to compare to.....straight back to minimum wage with no one to stop it

Unions have outlived their usefulness and are dying away. People have realized that the Fat Cat Union Bosses make just as much as the Fat Cat Business Bosses. The only difference is that the first one lives large off of the sweat and union dues of the worker while the second guy actually sells a product.

We can sit back and remain a non right-to-work state and get smothered by the likes of North Carolina and Soiuth Carolina. Given the risks involved building a business in the WV with the union mentality we have, we are really lucky anyone invests here.

Keep on slacking and striking boys - run off a few thousand more jobs.

He's probably an honest working member of society who makes a decent wage, supports a family, and doesn't see any benefits from unions. It's possible ya know? Not all productive people who hold down good jobs suck of the teat of the union. I honestly think that I would make more money without the union dipping into my paycheck.

Only one way to find out!
Turn in your Union card and have at it!
Bet you change your tune real quick!
Hard to believe that some still can't realize how much every blue collar worker has benefited from the collective bargaining of the past 90 years!

Completely how I feel about my union job. Also someone else stated that we would all be minimum wage without unions. This makes entirely no sense. There are thousands of non union jobs out there that pay more than minimum wage not to mention the supervisors at my job are non union and make more than the union guys make. Why not pay them minimum wage? They could if they wanted to, but they don't. It's due to skill, responsibility, risk and other factors. That is what most pay rates are based on without unions.

Put it very simply...every union pipe fitter, electrician, etc. I have ever known had a nice house, often a pool, nice car, wife and kids had decent clothes, didn't have to eat garbage and call it dinner, got to take a nice vacation trip, etc.

Show me non-union men and women who, in essence, work with their hands at a TRADE without the benefit of a union card who can say the same? They get treated pretty much the same as illegals on a job site. If not worse.

A skill, a trade, will become more and more valuable. Soon America will have no tech or assembly line jobs left. A degree, 80% of the time for a working class kid, isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

Working class young people are beginning to see the value of skilled labor. Honestly, around here, if you aren't union, you don't have much chance of providing a nice life for your family.

The difference is that fat party thinks the workers are the owners. Workers don't fill the role of owners. Owners get to make mistakes, leaf from them or fail by them, but they're their mistakes to make. Same way with success. The owners role is not the same as the workers role. F150's price is dictated by what the market will bare, irreguardless of what the owners pay the workers. I respect the worker and what they do, but they are not owners. Got any more union garb they've been feeding you?
You lost me at "Irreguardless".
