I was born in Michigan which is big on unions and I now live in a state that isn't union friendly. It's pretty easy to do the math..

BTW, I'll be moving back to Michigan as soon as they figure out that the unions are what destroyed the entire state. (yeah, I'm pretty angry at them for that)

Can't put all the blame on them,
I've seen "Family owned companies" that work as a clan and would almost go bankrupt before they dare to reduce the salary of one of their relatives.

I didn't put all the blame on the unions. You also have to have people gullible enough to actually think they're looking out for your best interest.. it's like believing a politician

I believe in Unions, just as much as a believe in "Trickle down during profitable times"

Nothi9ng wrong with the idea of unions but when they in the end ruin a otherwsie producive way of life by their power greed its time for change which natrually happens Its a matter of pricing yourself out of business; really.

they had a place in the early twentieth century, but now they are nothing but a cess pool of corruption for the most part. I'm sure not all of them are, but the big ones definitely are and the uaw is about to bring down the (once) Big 3.
