Prove it. I've asked many pro union people to prove these kinds of statements and nobody can... just prove it because I think it's pure BS.

Why would you ever want to work for someone who is unfit to be in charge?

That's your opinion...

those unfit to be in charge
Only in the union world do bad managers keep their jobs..... In the real world when someone can't do their job they are either demoted or fired (which can't occur in the union world).......

Banding together? you mean gangs don't you?

Have you heard of OSHA? Occupational Safety and Health Administration - Home

Just one of the reasons unions aren't needed anymore...

wow. ok. how do you like vacation time? 8 hour work days? anti-child labor laws? proper working areas? minimum wage? Government enforced safety standards? I'm really suprised you asked that.
Ps.: I only meantioned a few. I didn't even meantion racism in the workplace or sexism.

Where's the proof, show me where labor unions are responsible for any of that. Seriously, just show me the proof.

~Yawn~ we are talking about 2011, not 1911, unions are as helpful as you-know-what in this day and age....

As far as racism and sexism goes that's what OSHA is for....

-_____-. really? Unions work to increase the rights of workers. In the real world, those with the most money keep power, and its a sad thing. and really? The OSHA? I really don't see the negative in that...

As far as racism and sexism goes that's what OSHA is for (just in case your union masters never told you)...
those who dont learn fro the past are bound to repeat it. There is never a time in the workplace not to band together to reach higher goals.
