Yep unions got all those things going. They also forced all the jobs overseas. They have killed the Steel industry, nearly killed the Auto Industry. Their actions have hurt more people than they have ever helped.

Joe republican woke up this morning and started his day ! He first took a shower and after it made his coffee . The water was clean because some tree hugging lib fought for this in the US congress and made a law ! He now gets into his car and goes to work ! the car he drives is safe because some Dem tree hugging lib fought for safer rules in the US Congress ! He now gets to work ! He gets a pension healthcare , vacation and overtime . Unemployment and workers comp if laid off or hurt so he wont lose his home or benefits . He has paid days off all year long . because some COMMUNIST LIB UNION THUG fought for the rights he enjoys today ! So the next time people like the GOP , rant about libs and unions ? Tell them that they have all these benefits because of them !!! Its sad the idiots forgot that !!! Only in America land of the free??? Home of the truly STUPID !!!

The water was clean because all people wanted clean water,
He gets into his foreign car or his supposed American car that is assembled in Mexico because the unions forced the car companies to outsource the majority of their operations.
The safer rules for cars? Ralph Nader started it and now the unions have claimed it for themselves and not to mention the extreme cost of all these safety things, and lets not forget the fuel.
Workmens comp, unemployment, holidays, all Government not union.
Vacation, pension, insurance, etc. still there in non-union companies. They are there because it makes good business sense to help attract and retain the best people.
Unions had a purpose and a reason at one time but they have become the very monster that they fought to defeat.

What does that have to do with unions? The US Military does not have a union.
