See, the main problem here is that very few people are in a union, and those few people do seem to make way too much money and get rich benefits.
Face it, other people get jealous and hate them for that.
Everybody should be in a union, those who make fat bank in the current unions should have their pay cut, then everybody else being newly unionized should all get a pay raise so that everybody can have a modest living wage that keeps up with inflation.
The vacations and sick benefits are a good thing, Most of us work too long and hard anyway, we should all only need to work part time, not like 40+ hour a week slaves that leave one with 1 or 2 days off a week, the better part of you gets exhausted working all day. I hate it!
Yes, I am an advocate of more free time!
Anyway, if you unionize everybody in one country it will not work; why, because a lot of jobs need to compete with poverty wages and poor human rights with no benefits at all overseas, and if they can't work they get nothing at all.
Only a worldwide revolution and invasion of a benevolent alien power from space would make that (world unionization) happen, I'm ready, you, you benevolent alien people you.
People hate unions when they are not in one.
Everybody should be, hell, It's my labour that I am selling is it not? What if everyone demanded a fair price for that?!edit on 8-8-2011 by Toadmund because: screwed up bolding
