Not suprised. I am 100% against Unions and have alwasy felt they are a disease to this country.

Can't wait to see the attempted spins, though!

I agree with him. So long as employers can distort the labor market to their advantage, unions are absolutely necessary to avoid the creation of a bipolar society devided into workers and owners.

We really need to recreate the International Workers of the World to give the workers the economic power they need to deal fairly with the corporations of the world.

Unions were a great thing in the early 1900's, but have become more corrupt with every passing year. There is no place for unions in today's America...

Honest unions are needed more than ever in America and the rest of the world. Corruption, not unions, are the problem.

A globalist eh ?
You do realize you cannot lift the third world countries to US standards.
The equality will come somewhere below the median.
So, you are all for US standards being lowered in order for third world countries to raise theirs ? If so, you should be against US unions as they are anti-globalists.
