Why all the hate towards unions, you ask? Well I'm going to answer your question with another; Would a slave owner want his slaves to have a voice in their subsistence level accommodations?
F&S for the OP.

It is an artifact. Ive been disgusted by the work ethics of union members. They've shown themselves to be lazy pieces of terds and if i was in the entertainment industry, I'd take all my work overseas where I can get just as good work with 1/8th the cost, and provide jobs to folks there.
Instead, if by law I have to hire union members, 9 times out of 10, I get some 300 pound slob who complains and takes more brakes than hours he works and charges crazy ridiculous amounts of money for their work causing everything to go over budget, when I have seen non-union guys do t better, faster, for less, great ethics, and even became friends after.
Unions are on the way out and good riddance. It will even out the playing field
If they took TV shows overseas; who would watch them?
I understand you have a bad experience with some unions; It's unfair to label all unions and union members the same. That's stupid!
