There is a need for Unions. History has written that point over and over. Management is never put in the spotlight. Why?

18000 people losing their Jobs, right before Christmas. Looks like the Union didn't help the employees after all.

Most people want to work at a fair wage and safe work place. They don't want to destroy the company. Simply be a part of it. Its called being reasonable.
I served as a chief steward while working for what would be considered a VERY enlightened employer. I was kept busy as hell keeping management on the straight and narrow...which is to say keeping to the collective agreement which they had negotiated and signed as well. I repeat...NO employer gets a union unless they richly deserve it! You guys join in that race to the bottom if you wish - God only knows some folks just can't manage life without a scapegoat - but the corporations are sitting on their dough and as laughing as the lower classes duke it out to find somebody...anybody...to blame for their woes.

Fairness is what we don't have anymore. 100 years of unions have destroyed it.

And the fools readily oblige.
