I could care less either way, but it's fascinating to examine yet another way unions strangle development and hurt job growth.

all unions care about is lining their pockets at the workers expense.
this BS has nothing to do with capitalism, it has to do with greed.

Yea, and the corporate bosses and CEO'S don't care about lining their pockets at workers expense.

The reality is somewhat different.



Obvious to everyone but the unions, the existing model collapsed so this new one would be a start up, experimental and adjustments would have to be made. The unions wanted the same pay and rights they had when their shows on TV went belly up.




You'd think but unions aren't interested in jobs.
So, why did it go belly up on TV in the first place? Obviously people didn't want to watch it anymore. So I am not sure it makes sense to contract the same people again who were responsible for that failure in the first place
And let's be honest, most TV shows only have a certain potential that lasts for a few seasons, then people will start to move on.

So it's the union's fault that the company wanting to rerun the soap was lousy at negotiating?

They never have been, and they never will be, and that's pathetic.

Definitely one of the best job-killing entities ever, no doubt about it.
