"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

America is a Republic, not a "democracy". Ohio is a Republic, not a "democracy".

Who will get today's prize for S.S. in the comments section? Solipsistic Soliloquy is raised (or lowered as the case may be) to a new art form. The Totalitarian Freuds will label all dissenters "silly little man", in deference to their chic and sophisticated laureate, O. Wilde Child. The leftist echo chamber effect helps them focus, which is tough for people who suffer Marxist Mental Myopia.

Unions have had a good effect on this nations work force but they also come with a whole list of negatives.

Inflexibility of the workforce.

Strikes that turn violent. Seen that stuff first hand.

Self serving union bigwigs whose business is increasing the amount of workers under the union umbrella so that more money can be brought in for Union "use".

Just to name a few.

I wonder when the plutocrats in this country will realize that the non one percenters who make up the vast majority of this nation are the most important part of this nation's economic engine?

The less the majority can purchase the worse off our economy will be.

"When employers in this country say labor costs are too high, what they're really saying to you is, you have it too good. What they're really saying to you is, all you need is enough to get you into the plant and work."

Yep this. I don't carry any doubts that what people are required to be paid minimally wouldn't be paid if companies weren't forced to pay a worker the minimum amount.

BobBarker...i have read the account of the crucifixion in the bible several times and i don't believe that is the reason why they killed Jesus. perhaps you may wish to quote someone with some sense about themselves.

Again VW wants the union, find the information from the company itself, and Bob, Rikki don't like cookies, he prefers paste....

Bottom line: Your brothers and sisters will make less, thanks to the predominance of your attitude.

Congratulations.

The irony is, that someone who presumably is a working person, would be crowing about a corporation "Chop(ing) Labor Costs in U.S."

Sorry about multi post, trying new device, so if you vote union the state will stop tax breaks, if you vote union , the rethuglican senator will use his powers and the ones that back him to stop production of a SUV, all that and still UAW only needed about 50 votes to organize, so there will more than likely be another vote, but what gets me is VW wanted union organization.....tell me again how Rikki, Bob, Dave and Charlie are pro american worker, eat more paste rikki

Many viewed VW as the union's only chance to gain a crucial foothold in the South because other automakers have not been as welcoming as Volkswagen. Labor interests make up half of the supervisory board at VW in Germany, and they questioned why the Chattanooga plant is the only one without formal worker representation. VW wanted a German-style "works council" in Chattanooga to give employees a say over working conditions. The company says U.S. law won't allow it without an independent union.

In Chattanooga, the union faced stern opposition from Republican politicians who warned that a UAW victory would chase away other automakers who might come to the region.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee was the most vocal opponent, saying that he was told that VW would build a new midsized SUV in Chattanooga if workers rejected the union. That was later denied by a VW executive. Other politicians threatened to cut off state incentives for the plant to expand if the union was approved

United we stand, divided we fall For every dime they give us a battle must be fought So working people use your power the key to liberty Don't support the rich man's style of luxury

There ain't no way they can ever keep us down There ain't no way they can ever keep us down We won't be bought, we won't be sold To be treated right, well that's our goal There ain't no way they can ever keep us down

We've been shot, we've been jailed, lord its a sin Women and children stood right by the men We've got a union contract that keeps the worker free They'll never shoot that union out of me

They'll never shoot that union out of me, oh no They'll never shoot that union out of me Got a contract in our hand signed by the blood of honest men They'll never shoot that union out of me

The power wheel is rolling, rolling right along The government is keep it going going strong so working people get your help from your own kind Your welfare on the rich man's mind

Your welf
