You're mostly incoherent in your posts, but in this one, you're over the top. WHAT is your point and what does it have to do with Unions? Are you implying that if everyone stayed in school, got a different job, and waited to have children, that hotel rooms would no longer need to be cleaned, tables bussed, dishes washed, and trash collected? Who would do those things? Your mother?

Those are entry level jobs that people would work while they continued their education before moving on to better paying careers wuth a future rather than working at them their entire lives and complaining that they are not earning a "living wage."

And how many people would stay in hotels at $1000 a night? How many hamburgers would be bout at $10 per burger? Unfortunately, those jobs have to be done for low wages or it just doesn't work for the people starting and sustaining the business.

President Obama is scheduled to meet with labor and progressive leaders today at the White House to discuss the fiscal cliff and overall economic strategy moving into his second term. The meeting will take place behind closed doors and the press isn't invited. Exactly who will be there?
