"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.

BobBarker...your response to the subaru story i posted spoke wonders as to the mental state of the hyper-dedicated union devotee. they lost the bid...get over it. sore losers and terrible representatives for the professionals they claim to promote. tsk, tsk, tsk. you personally should be ashamed of yourself for the promotion of punishment against an american company in exercising their right to free choice in whom they write contracts with for service. in this day and time, that sort of under-handed thug-like intimidation won't work.

dispute" written in the corner of the union sign and fact that the fonts don't quite match, the two banners are nearly identical. Read as one, they are also hilarious -- to anyone who has a beef with unions, that is: "Shame on Subaru of Wichita for having unbeatable prices". thanks unions..."out of adversity comes opportunity". 8-)

BobBarker...YAWN. but here's some more union bull squat..... "Subaru of Wichita recently launched a $1.5 million renovation of a former Suzuki outlet, converting it to a Subaru showroom. Subaru of Wichita hired a range of local contractors for the upgrade, including a firm called Hi-Tech Interiors, which carried out some drywall installation. The problem is, Hi-Tech Interiors is a non-union shop, a fact that didn't sit well with the United Brotherhood Of Carpenters And Joiners Of America Local 201. And so, the union took to the streets -- or, more precisely, the right of way directly in front of the dealership. Members unfurled a large banner that reads, in big, red letters, "Shame on Subaru of Wichita". In return, the dealership's director of marketing, Aaron Wirtz, did what any bright, grammatically oriented person would do in that situation: he finished the sentence with a sign that reads, "for having unbeatable prices". Apart from the words "labor dis

Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Franklin, John Adams, Melancton Smith, George Mason and the rest of the Founding Fathers recognized "democracy" as a failed and dangerous means of ruling a free Nation. They rejected it. We are now suffering from too much mob rule, 51% mentality. Your POTUS makes statements that mean "I won. The law is mine to pick and choose and ignore at my whim, or twist into a bat to whack my political enemies!" Anyone who lives by mob rule "democracy" in place of a Constitutional Republic with immutable Rights for every Citizen, all the time, deserves to be made a mere subject of his elected "king". You are not far from serfdom, comrade.

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.
