"The number of American workers in unions declined sharply last year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday, with the percentage slipping to 11.9 percent, the lowest rate in more than 70 years.

The report found that the number of workers in unions fell by 612,000 last year to 14.7 million, an even larger decrease than the overall 417,000 decline in the total number of Americans working."

"The number of private sector workers in unions fell by 339,000, to 7.1 million, while the number of public sector union members fell by 273,000, to 7.6 million.

The percentage of private sector workers in unions fell to 6.9 percent, down from 7.2 percent, the lowest rate for private sector workers in more than a century, labor historians said.

In 2009, for the first time in American history, government employees accounted for more than half the nation’s union membership, but the percentage of government workers in unions fell to 36.2 percent last year, down from 37.4 percent the previous year."

That should clear the way for reduced wages, benefits, and hours worked per week. A Republican wet dream.

You mean that former union workers might have to actually pay for their own Viagra and sexual reassignment surgeries?

If I knew a Regina and she knew my "willy", rest assured she would know it is fully functional, loaded and ready.

How about you? You ever lift up that fat belly and squint at your little fella in the mirror.

Bet it looks like a thimble wearing an afro-wig. LOL!
