In politics everyone claims to be on the side of the children, but who really is? Pat DeLorenzo is a parent whose daughter suffers from epilepsy. Like roughly 10,000 other epileptic schoolchildren in California, eight-year-old Gianna suffers from the type of prolonged seizures that, without immediate attention, can result in brain damage or death. After witnessing the response of teachers and school nurses to one of his daughter's life-threatening seizures, Pat DeLorenzo now believes that teachers and nurses care more about protecting union jobs than saving epileptic children.

If it wasn't for unions, you'd be working from the age of 8, from dawn until dusk, no breaks, and horrible pay with deplorable conditions and rat infestations.

Unions might have started out for noble causes but times have changed. What unions are doing now is acting like vultures trying to squeeze whatever is left out of an already dying U.S.
“When school children start paying union dues, that 's when I'll start representing the interests of school children.”

I've never worked at a job with a union. I got good pay, good benefits, time off, clean working conditions, treated fairly. It's been working for me for over 25 years. Never needed a union, never knew anyone that did.
