Study history a little bit and you will see that unions WERE a good thing for workers. That day is passed. Unions are as corrupt as the politicians they back. The union heads at the national level are out for themselves only. If they have to sell out the rank and file then so be it.

If you think unions help employees long term, go talk to a steel worker or an auto worker.

I talk to the auto workers everday, one glad he has a retirement that the Union got him.
One auto workers can transfer to other plants, or go on a waiting list ( call back and set home with 80%of pay. Others can take a buy-out set up by the Union and the company.
Now if their was know union they would not have these rights and would be just told to go home.

And look at many of the jobs that were send over seas or out of the county in the 60s by the steel plants, by greed corrupt politicians that were in office.

When times get hard is when the Unions do better in the long run.

Which is a lot of the reason the US auto makers are near or in bankruptcy. 80% of their pay for not producing anything. What good is that if the company goes bankrupt. Better to have been making 75% for the last 10 years and work for a strong viable company that does not require government bailout.

Oh and those are definately not RIGHTS. They are privlages and extreme privlages at that.
