Any excuse to try to make unions look bad.
You people must either not work, or you are idiots.
The unions, however bad they may be, are the only way workers have a voice. Without unions workers are completely at the mercy of the company they
Without unions you would not have an eight hour day, a 5 day work week, weekends, paid holidays, overtime pay, safe work environment, child labour
laws, minimum wage, no middle class
I could go on and on. You people have such short memories, and no sense of history.
Imagine America without Unions
Imagine what life in the United States would (or will) be like without unions. To conjure up such an image, one needs only to go back in time when
unions didn’t exist… back to the Dark Ages and feudalism, back to injustice, slavery, indentured servants, and castles surrounded by rat-infested
thatched-roof shanties housing the starving, uneducated paupers....

Nationwide, organized labor has become the whipping-boy for business groups and their political allies, bearing the blame for much of the
country’s fiscal woes...
Why do you believe the lies of the capitalist class? Who's side are you on? Do you want America to be like Mexico?
The Thursday story about Mexico's labor system trapping millions in poverty reminded me of what my parents said 50 years ago, that if we get rid
of unions, we will be like Mexico -- just the "haves" and the "have-nots."
