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.

With the Koch brothers wanting to acquire newspapers, who does not think they will use this as a way to further push for RTW laws, in their attempt to lower wages, give workers fewer options to have livable wage jobs, and using govt. Subsidies to keep payroll and other costs down, at the expense of taxpayers. RTW is wrong and gives very few power over so many. No choice,no voice, that is the goal of RTW and its backers.

So are union laborers, noble or ignoble....of course paying employees starvation wages, knowing the govt. policies will subsidise those living within a certain percentage of poverty level, is not so noble either. right to screw the workforce is wrong.

Being forced to financially support political activities you do not agree with just to keep your job is also wrong.

One of the many reasons unions were formed.

Two of the indicted educators accused in the Atlanta Public School cheating scandal have turned themselves in to the Fulton County Jail early Tuesday morning. The 35 educators, including former superintendent Beverly Hall, must surrender on Tuesday. They all face charges of racketeering, theft by taking, influencing witnesses and making false statements. A grand jury hearing the APS case suggested a $7.5 million bond for Hall. If convicted, she faces up to 45 years in prison.

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment;

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public.

The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.
