Re: haters will be haters

Unions have some positive attributes but they too are in it for themselves and are just as guilty of being in the politicians' back pocket as the big bad companies you claim they are protecting us from. Unions are just another layer of management telling others what they can and can't do.

If unions are such a no-brainer, then why do they need to hide behind complex rules and laws that force employees to participate by paying dues?

The only reason organized labor still exists at all is because of goon squad tactics that coerce participation. When truly given a choice, the union always loses. Just like in Wisconsin: As soon as membership became optional, half the employees up and quit. The stupid union can't even sell itself to its own members.

So yeah, it does not bother me at all if some lazy union shitbag ends up on the street. Fuck them.

And yes, as a matter of fact I have been a union member; not because I think unions are great, only because it was the rules.
