"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.

be so anti -freedom and anti-living wage is just nutty !For the life of me I cant fathom how the righties here can harbor such hate against a organization that has benefited almost all working americans ! Through the efforts of unions there are things like child labor laws, 40 hr work week, insurance, sick pay, increased safety,vacations , and the list goes on and on ! Why cant these weak-minded brain-washed "people" understand that without union struggles we would all still be working 80hr weeks ,6 days a week for nearly nothing ! Thats not democracy thats still slavery !

Wow , what a line of crap !! So I suppose this is your new "go to" website ! Well thats their opinion as idiotic as it is !Unions are still the line in the sand for the safety of workers ! And unions assure workers rights and keep businesses from taking advantage of workers ! I think the history of unions tells the true story ! Things like the 40 hr work week , child labor laws , paid vacations , sick days , and the list goes on and on ! You may not be union but you can thank unions for what benefits you get !When poor wrongriki cant find a VALID arguement this is the garbage you have to deal with !

In the time it took you to write that a union shop would have had 2 coffee breaks and filed one grievance.

When ever a person makes a CHOICE to either A: work at a union shop or B: work at a non-union shop they are making their own personal CHOICE !!!When you say they have no choice your LYING !! ~~~Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein~~~NO#1 theres nobody holding a gun to anyones head forceing them to ratify a union ! Thats more of your right-wing garbage that is propagated in order to sway you weak-minded types !NO#2 Just in case you havent noticed we live in a free democracy that as one of its bases is the right of the majority !You do know what a majority is dont you ?

And since you cant accept facts into your peabrain just remember your the one who said very vehemently that you cant buy an AK-47 and you were wrong about that one ! If the majority doesnt rule here then why is Obama president ? So your answer is full-o-crap !

See theres your problem tiredbrain , you seem to think that the vote would be close and usually its not ! Look thats just tough ! If your not part of the majority you still have choices ! You can choose to stay at the union shop and enjoy the benefits of collective bargaining or , you can find yourself a nice non-union job ! Since 87% arent union that should'nt be a problem ! So the choice is still there !

Put an end to the rights war on working people !Lets talk about your lack of brotherly love !!! Its not very loving to lie and mis-lead folks ! Especially when you say people have no choice when a person chooses either to work at A: a union shop or B: a non-union shop !! Now just how is it that thats not making a choice ??

Why is joining a union part of a job responsibility? Joining a union and performing a job don’t seem to go together. Have a job being held hostage by a union never made sense to me.

why a person who is anti-union would seek a job at a union -shop: maybe that person has a wife and children and needs a job. If that person is qualified for the job and can do the work in question, why does he have to join the union to get that job

munster...have a great evening. i have an early morning tomorrow and i will check for your response then.

own employment terms regardless of a union-shop or not. whether you like it or not...you have placed an undue burden on the job seekers ability to gain employment without your union strings attached.

ok, lets talk about choice for a moment. as i have stated before i am not fond of any corporations entering into labor agreements for many reasons. i hold them to blame for allowing it. just like i am not fond of employers hiring through labor search firms or temporary agencies. while they serve a purpose by acting as a substitute human resource office, they also become a pay-to-work scheme. i do not feel that anyone should have to pay to work much less join an organization that is tied politically just to gain employment. what occurred during the unionization process has limited ones ablity to gain employment unhindered. the union and the company are limiting the job choice by requiring something other than job qualifications. suppose all of the employees got together and required joining the local moose lodge, vfw hall or even a religous institution to gain a position. you would not approve of that...now would you? personally i think anyone should have the right to negotiate their o

munster...no deflection my friend. just countering your slam against republicans by using the priceless and quotable example set by your poster-girl Hillary. you are proud of her...right?

munster, i take exception to your statement. i think hillary has pefected your claim as evidenced by her Benghazi testimony. remember that after the denial, dflection and lies...it doesn't matter who has died. telling truth no longer is important in your venerable democrats eye.
