What happened to the "Union Influence in Politics" topic?

Even though I initiated it as the debut topic in the Times forums, I'm happy to realize it has been deleted. It died an ugly death long ago, and should have been executed long before it was. I'm curious though... Why? I am unaware of the travesty that occurred that was sufficiently heinous to warrant it's deletion... As compared to the tripe on ALL the other threads that is evident on a daily basis.

munster, the company is now called AFIMAC. i found them through google. after reading a little about them, it would seem to me that if the unions settled their disputes strictly by legal means, there would not be a necessity for a strike protection service. actually, what you are complaining about is the company protecting themselves, their "replacement" workers and business interests from potential "former" employees exacting their own remedy.

Yes,there is a constant chill to the air. I have well gas and plenty of firewood to keep things comfy here , lts. two x six inch insulated walls and brick exterior make a very heat efficient nest.

you know mod, in as much as it would make companies more profitable, i have to believe that many of the agreements were to transfer wealth to other economies as well as strengthen relationships between our countries and expand trade that utilized less labor in our country such as technology and information. the easy scapegoat is to demonize the evil corporations. but take a moment and look at the outsourcing that is being expanded by GE through this administration. i am not saying that this administration is any more "evil" than the last...i am simply stating that nothing has changed to stem the flow of jobs even when it is obvious that something quick and positive must be done.

when jobs started leaving us for foreign labor markets, there were no acceptable concessions that could be made to retain said jobs.

moderation, imo it would be a factor. how much is debateable...but every flea needs a dog...doesn't it? that is why the unions desperately need to get a foothold in as many government jobs as they can. not just for the relative job stability but for the political clout that comes with it.

good evening moderation...how are you doing?

munster, check your facts my friend. according to abc news the top ten politicians in america contain 60% democrat, 40% republican and 10% independent. you may wish to check on the cngress and senate...but i think you will find an equal blend of dem and rep.

sad about your indoctrination. btw, you may not have noticed but you folks have minimum wage jobs in your neck of the woods. you are just showing your regional prejudice against the south. we will gladly let your companies bring jobs down here...but keep your unions and high taxes up there. they have served you so well.
