I didn't need to twist your words to make you look like a hypocrite. Again, no one is forced to pay union dues. Unions contribute money to gain influence. The NRA contributes money to gain influence. You probably ought to look again at how much the NRA spends.
Unions want to gain influence to further their own agendas.

NRA uses it's influence to protect all citizen's 2nd amendment rights.

See the difference? Probably not.

Nobody gets forced to join a union, Tony.

You might have to pay in-kind contributions, but ya don't have to join.

Well then. If that is your husband's experience, it must be a universal truth.
She's right, in regards to public work, what she's referring to as a "rate job".

Move the same workers to a privately funded project and their hourly rate drops 30-40%.

That's a rather simplistic, and mistaken conclusion.

Try thinking about whether there is a difference between a voluntary choice of joining an organization and between following the law of the land.

Yep, designed to make it harder for non-union contractors to underbid union contractors, to fleece the taxpayers as much as possible.

That isn't the purpose Tony. Do some research on that issue.

Yes, I did. I was already the highest paid at the shop and lost $1.50 an hour as part of the "deal". That made the choice easier but I still ended up over $.50 down ($.50 was a lot bigger deal in the 70s than it is today) and it took me over a year to get back to the level I was. The mugger took me for $25 a week!

I wonder how many employers will drop health coverage altogether, figuring that it's cheaper to pay the fine.
Is is a flat fine or per employee fine, Tone? They can cut their employees back to under 50 or cut the hours per employee to under 28 per week to avoid any employer provided health insurance, but that will cost the individual a fortune and many of them will chose to pay the fine.

Quality of care is going to drop as doctors leave medicine or just refuse to accept medicare and Obamacare.

Or they can restructure the company into several smaller ones, each with only 49 employees and skirt it. What a friggin nightmare this is going to be. Stay well.

I don't know if it's 'universal', but that's the fact in this country. Unlike you, I don't make statements I'm not sure of.

I'm not sure why, not being in construction myself, but I know that's the way it works. I'll ask him tomorrow.

Throw a minority owned company in there and no one can underbid them on a federal job. And in most cases, they can't do the work right or on time and ignore all OSHA specs. But the inspector's turn a blind eye. Another 'bite' from entitlements.

To your point of quitting rather than joining the union, yes, you made the right decision. A non-union worker can be treated very badly and dangerously in a union shop.
