Unions may be a relic of times past and no longer considered necessary, but once we get rid of them completely we will be back in a position where
they look like a good idea again, unfortunately the businesses and corporations will invest the money to have lawyers write legislation and pay
lobbyists to get their toxic # passed into law to make sure they never come back in any form.
Over a century of worker rights battles, safety issues and labor laws go out the window right along with collective bargaining rights.Just because
people don't remember why these things came to be does not mean they didn't come to be for a good reason.
This country is going straight backwards in a race to the bottom, and anyone who doesn't really have any real idea how it once became great, which
most don't, are part of the problem. Unions don't need to be abolished because they became corrupt, somewhat ineffective and a drain, they need to be
reformed and controlled more effectively.
Ask your grandparents about what their parents had to go through to get by before all of these unions and administrations and such, which came to be
to control tyrannical employers which were so incredibly abusive of powerless employees in the past, take seriously what they say instead of passing
it off as BS, because it used to be bad.
The U.S. is going backwards, I have been working here my whole life and have seen the changes with my own eyes.
The U.S. is going backwards because there are so many ignorant people who just accept what the ignorant business owners justify themselves doing, I
have worked for non-profits, have been self employed, worked for big and small manufacturing companies and see the same old # year after year getting
worse all the time.
Unions are numbers of people uniting and collectively bargaining with businesses for fair treatment, businesses don't want to be that considerate,
most business owners are tyrants.
OK, now bring on those self aggrandizing, pigs wallowing in their own supposed success business owners claiming "I'm not a tyrant!!", yeah you frickin
are because the way things work today make it absolutely necessary that you be a tyrant just like those who make you jump through hoops to get
anything done every day of the week.
# rolls downhill, the people that are at the bottom are always the ones who have to literally swim in it, live in it, eat it....
Contrary to what has been said earlier in the thread, it's the absolute worst in the south as far as employment, slavery is alive and well here.
I have more, but I don't really want to get banned from here.
