How can you say they don't work and unions suck, probably because you couldn't get a job there and are living off 200 $ a week unemployment that we pay for you. If production workers put in the overtime they make 70,000 a year, because of a bad ass union and they have to work there ass off. Don't be jealous

Unions do nothing but cost tax payers money...they rob the companies creating the need to bail outs and bankruptcy...they are a total joke.
