LOL Now unions are going after Wal-mart workers and burger flippers to get a few of their pennies. Union leaders don't care about the worker at all....they care about their own pocketbooks not the union member...here is a sampling of some of their wages from 2013.

Living pretty good while you struggle aint they?
Unions are SOCIALISM at its finest. I work for a union company...but im staff so im not union.
here is the deal with unions.
take any 5 guys off the bench.
One of them busts his butt, knows what to do and does it well. He doesn't need a babysitter.
The next two guys will get the job done, but need babysitting.
The last two guys need constant supervision, they are lazy, don't know anything and wont learn.
here in lies the problem. THEY ALL GET THE SAME PAY!!!! of course you libtard leftie girlieman union guys will say, no sir. The top guy will get foremans pay. Of course he will when he gets promoted to that position. Until then though...EVERYON IS THE SAME...SOCIALISM at its finest.
And this is another example why New York has become unaffordable for most. Property taxes are out of control largely due to years of concessions to teacher' unions. In one nearby community in Westchester, the town is spending $45K per student and NOT obtaining exceptional outcomes. Retirees can no longer afford to remain in New York and have been moving to lower cost
I work for a company in Washington state that IS UNION. We also have a non-UNION version in Houston.
Guess what? the workers in Houston have been with the company longest, are the most satisfied, and the best employees...get the most done....and here is the kicker....
they are paid MORE than the union guys cause they are more productive...
Shove your unions up your socialist butts.
OH YEA it is always the fault of the Owner of a business for low wages therefore, we need a Union to be sure wages are fair. And may I ask who determines what is fair? Union delegates? OMG people who have never invested a dime in a business? People who never risked everything to start a business? People who never concern themselves with changing times, competition, Fed, State, City regulations? Law suits imposed by people just looking for an easy buck? I can go on and on.
UNIONS at one time were a BROTHERHOOD to day they are greed inspired beyond any common sense.
This is a view by a business man who like so many business men/woman have second thoughts about further continuing development into the so called FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM.
Like I said UNIONS were a BROTHERHOOD at one time today their GREED AND SALARIES AND WAGE BENEFITS ARE A JOKE. ESPECIALLY AT THE HIGH LEVEL OF UNION STRUCTURE.
Union greed and corruption is their own downfall.
The teachers union in a New York (LIBTARD -VILLE NEW YORK) voted themselves a perk years ago...that the employer pay for cosmetic surgery....of all things. LOL.
Today, that school district pays for millions in breast implants, but tucks, etc....all a cost to the taxpayer.
Ohhhhhhhhhh...forgot to mention...that very school district is nearly bankrupt, and has a huge unfunded future liability portfolio all at the hands of the union....
I like how New York State is offering "Tax free" for NEW businesses for 10 years....LOL
I wonder what the businesses that are there now are thinking? Why don't they get some kind of tax break?
If I was a business in that crap hole state...id move out just because of that....
Anyone who doesn't remember the past is doomed to repeat it. Unions were successful when America was the only country in the world with a manufacturing base (post WWII) and the companies could just keep raising prices to keep up with union greed. But the demands from the unions pushed the cost of goods so high that everything started getting manufactured in other countries. By the mid 70's it was so bad that the unions spent more time not working, than working. because at any point in the manufacturing chain that a union decided to strike, the entire chain was shut down. Processes further down the chain didn't have the parts or material needed and processes further up the chain didn't have demand for what they were doing until the chain started back up. And all the union members supported it, even though it cost them all. Many companies went under due to the strikes in other industries shutting them down..... which cost untold numbers of union members their jobs. The unions tried to then force manufacturers to use union made goods, and were told 'Not Possible'. Since there were no longer any plants in America making some of the stuff..... because of union strikes. And the situation escalated until by 1980, every sane person in America understood just how badly unions had poisoned the economy. and then Reagan busted the air traffic controllers union. And the entire country saw how much better things ran with non-union members in the towers. And it was on! The unions fought back the only way they could..... by striking. They let food rot on the docks and garbage pile up in the streets. And that is when America knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, just how truly sick the union members were. Anyone that would refuse to work, just to prove that they deserved to get paid for not working, needed to go. And the unions are dying because of that demonstration of stupidity and evil.
IF they could show where they actually provide any good in America, they would recover. But since they haven't been able to, they are steadily dying. Well, other than 'public service' unions. But the teachers playing that bull chit 'underpaid/overworked card played out a few years ago and now they are going to die too. Thank God!
The World was even a more dangerous place before most of OBAMAS low information voters were born! Americans, for the most part, know very little about History and therefore understand even less about how the world economic system evolved.
OUR GOVERNMENT ..... NOT BIG BUSINESS .... started the manufacturing exodus from the U.S.
Don't believe me? Ever heard of the MARSHALL PLAN? ... No?...I didn't think so ... too boring right!
During the early COLD WAR era ...OUR US GOVERNMENT sponsored and encouraged programs to lure investment away from the US ...and to our defeated adversaries in order to rebuild their economies. The motive behind that idea was the theory that a strong economy on their part would decrease the influence of COMMUNISM.
The prosperity we remember so fondly was purely an accident of history ... A perfect storm of post WWII pent-up worldwide consumer demand and NO WORLD COMPETITION for American products. We could sell anything and everything because everybody else was trying to rebuild their industrial base. There were no Japanese steel mills, Japanese cars ...Korean electronics or Chinese textiles etc. If you wanted it ...it was made in the USA.
Europe and Japan were bombed into ruins! And when they did rebuild they did so with more efficient and productive tecnology ... 20, 30 even 50 years more advanced than any America manufacturing facilities at that time. Much of it was American invented technology that DEMOCRATIC biased AMERICAN UNIONS resisted being implemented in US manufacturing. They only cared about how many UNION members they had so they could collect UNION DUES and remain in business as a UNION. (Yes a Union is a form of business.)
American jobs didn't disappear overnight! In the '60s it was steel ...remember Pittsburg? In the '70's textiles (The South and North East) ....and cars (Detroit). It was just a matter of time before ...POOF! ,,,There goes another American base industry lost to a more efficient FOREIGN COMPETITOR!
Union Liberals think that only Americans have a right to manufacture widgets ... and that its unfair for a foreign competitor to make it better or cheaper (sorta like everybody deserves a trophy but no one deserves to be the winner.) You cannot prevent competition. You can only try to find ways to be a better competitor yourself.
The Liberal Democratic Union fools refused to believe that ever increasing wage and benefit demands and government meddling regulation would become sure ways to EXPORT their jobs in the future! They were wrong! ...That future is here and now!
Lots of people ... or their children ....who voted for Unions and DEMOCRATIC politicians then, are UNEMPLOYED NOW! There are consequences to decisions made in the voting booth my friends ... sometime decades later
IF the union stands up to the corporation, who stands up to the union? These people have a monopoly on your labor and they have proven time and time again that they will drop to thuggish tactics to keep you in line.
No union for me, thank you.
Here we go again!! Knock the unions, boys and girls. In my experience, people that knock unions, know nothing about them. They are, on the most part, jealous of their counterparts, and would give their right arm, to have a union job, where they would be able to make a fair wage, have medical insurance, be able to support their family, send their kid to college, have a comfortable home, and a pension to retire with. In other words, be part of the "middle income class", that made this country great!! Most union employees, are hard working, honest, and proud Americans.
Just to set the record straight, I'm neither a Republican, nor Democrat. I don't need some party big wig, to tell me how the think, or vote. It's called being an Independent, and am perfectly capable of doing my own thinking.
So you nitwits, both Democrat, and Republican, hap at it.
