i would go further to say that public (government worker) unions should be banned. Government workers are our employees, they work for us. If you want
higher pay, better benefits, go work in the private sector. Government jobs are for public servants. Anything else is just counter to the vision of
the founding fathers.
To all the people that actually think the unions have "your best interests at heart" wake up, get a clue you are gullible. You really think that
AFL-CIO or SEIU really care one little bit what happens to you? About as muchg as apple cares what happens to you. You are nothing but a revenue
stream to them. The advatage to the unionis, they can force you to pay the dues even if you do not want to be apart of their little cabal.
Tell that to police and firefighters and then pray you never need them.
How ignorant are some of you, really?
well, where I live, the police and firefighters are not unionized, so I have nothing to worry about thank you.
So, just because I think your position in some debates is the polar opposite of what we need as a country and the antithesis of what this country is
supposed to be all about , you call me ignorant? Maybe you should look in the mirror my friend. Since you insist on playing left/right lets look at
the left a moment, seeing as thought the vast majority or the unions are left leaning.
The left has over the years, been the political party that has worked the hardest at keeping minorities in poverty. The voted against and worked
against emancipation. They worked to keep segregation in place. Now they work at the same ends by duping the very same people they want to push down
into voting for them. Then they turn around and encourage people to remain in poverty and create multi generational welfare families. They propagate
the entitlement mentality and advocate taking my property (money is property) by force and giving it to someone who refuses to work as hard as I do
either presently or previously while in school.
Then, if thats not enough, in most states, when you go to work at a company that is unionized, they again take your money by force. They tell you
that you have 2 choices, you can pay the dues and be a member, or you can pay the dues and not receive their protection, either way they get their
money. So what if you morally object to the union that is stealing your money ? Tough, the democrats in congress long have made it legal for this to
happen. Then when some on wants to change it, they are labeled union killers and heckled everywhere they go.
I really think that people that endorse the unions blindly and actually believe they care about the individuals has a mental illness
