It wasn't the Blacks.
It wasn't the Hispanics.
It wasn't the poor white folks.
It wasn't the middle class folks.
Poor Florida wasn't even needed.
Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan - big Labor.

No, it was the Unions.

The unions want all states to wipe out 'At Will".

Ah now that sounds pretty good.

Let's see if it happens.

You sound a bit confused so I have the answer for you. IT WAS THE AMERICAN VOTERS.

You are 100 percent correct, it was the American voters. The American voters who are sick and fed up with Republican lies, obstruction and BS.

It was the little old lady down the street, the veteran next door, the school teacher, the car salesman in town, the college kid, the retiree, and on and on. Sure, if they work and they're lucky, they might be unionized. Percentage wise, it's not likely since only 11 percent of the country is unionized.

"At will" employment states are the lowest earning states in the nation because of the "at will" business screwing over the average Joe while protecting profits of the companies CEOs. Period. Don't ever support any "at will" issues or Republicans and things will get better.

So are you saying that the GOP put into action the 'at will' employment.

I don't think you are correct at all.

The Union's had a lot to do with it.....they want every state to be a closed shop state so that every worker has to join a union and pay dues before he can earn a living and support his family....

That is true and if you deny it you are lying!!!!!

Gotta agree. I was a union member and steward during my working years and we wanted to unionize the world. At times, unions have been good to me and bad for me. They helped get me better working conditions and better pay. When I moved into supervision and management, they interfered with our ability to get the job done.

Historically, unions support has helped elect presidents and other politicians. If the Autoworkers Union helped elect Obama, what else could anyone expect? Obama helped keep the automakers doors open and the workers employed. Romney wanted them to go bankrupt. Don't bother to try to explain that Romney's motive was not anti-auto company and anti-union. If that is true, he should have convinced the Autoworkers.

Sounds like you were a better union man than a supervisor, you should have stayed in labor. But that's what happens, the bastards promote the best union stewards to keep them off their backs, and most won't allow supervisory personnel to organize, if they did there'd be more harmony between management and labor.

FYI...We have always been on the opposite sides of the fence .I was on the corporations bargaining team for many, many years when the contracts were du to expire. Very enlightening experiences....during the daytime sessions it was all for show....the real bargaining took place after hours over drinks and dinners.
Sometimes they struck and other times we locked them out....funny thinking back on it.

I bargained contracts from both sides, once as a union steward and once as a member of management. I was a federal employee both times and so our union rights were more limited and controlled. For instance, we could not strike. In both instances everyone on both sides knew one another, but the whole procedure was an eye opening experience.
