greedy short sighted union never want to cut anything.

Unions would rather see a business or company close and go out of business rather than compromise to save jobs.

Buy any America steal lately, twinkies.?

..... The whole purpose of unions is to push always for more for their members more and more, for less and less. But some unins are short-sighted and they do not think that they are causing their employer to close down the business, and causing their members to be unemployed. So there!
