Ahhh, the blinded views of a union fan boy. Lemme guess, you work in a place like Motts as an overpaid union line worker who thinks they have the skills to deserve $20+ an hour?

Unions are a drain on society. See: teachers unions.

NY is the only state which has more union rank and file, using 1990 as a benchmark.
