My husband belongs to a union and thank God. Overpaid management, elected officials and conservatives are frothing at the bit to take away our money and benefits. The union holds them legally responsible to the negotiated contract. Why should middle income pay and lifestyle, when their are plenty of rich people, who taxing won't hurt. Hairdressers don't have unions. So, I know how hard it is to live without benefits and to be without health insurance. I can assure you from a life time of experience, having unions is a lot better than not having them. Back when unions were thriving, so were jobs and businesses.<quoted text>
Are you a Union member? I am and have been for 38 years. My union never found me a job and probably cost me one or two. They get $22 per hour for doing nothing. They take my dues and spend what they want to elect Democrats without asking if I want to. They protect the worse employees in my field. Unions had their day but it has long passed. They are just like the government poorly run and mismanaged. Our retirenment is slashed our medical has been cut to pieces and they keep bargaining for more fringes. We have priced ourselves out of the market. The people that need the breaks are the ones who put in on the line, small business owners. They risk their assets every day just to stay in business. And all the while the same Democrats that the unions want in office make it harder and harder to do business with unreasonable regulations and demands. Don't lecture me on how great unions are.

It isn't possible that a REAL conservative would want your money or benefits, unless you got them illegally or unfairly.

You have such an animosity for anyone who succeeds. The unions have put this State into a downward spiral. You are so hung up on class warfare that you cannot understand the consequences. In these modern times companies depend less and less on where they are located demographiclly and more on business climate. Yes we can tax the so called fat cats and the demon business's right out of this State. We have the highest corperate tax rate, we have the largest welfare and entitlement programs to support. We have the highest public employee union pension and wage benefits in the country. We have the most anti-business enviromental and nonemployer friendly regulations in the country. And now we just elected a recycled Govenor that was bought and paid for by my union and all other unions. I know why you can't afford health insurance, you have poor business skills and want to rely on the poor me syndrome. I hate to break it to you but California is broke and all the taxation of "rich people" and business will not get us out of our mess. Perhaps you should stick to your good old boy conspiracies and leave the repair of this once great State to real adults who understand more government is not the answer.
