What happens to the unions when the employer quits? What happens when you show up to work, and the gates are locked? HA! WE BUST DOWN THE GATES! HA! What happens when you try and enter the building, and the doors are locked? HA! WE BUST OPEN THE DOORS! HA! What happens when you find out the electricity is turned off? HA! WE BUST UP ALL THE EQUIPMENT, WE TEAR DOWN THE ESTABLISHMENT! WE BURN IT TO THE GROUND! HA! What happens when theres no place to work? HA! oh damn It's coming unions workers. And I'll bet your union bosses have an out. When the money runs out, what ya gonna do? Trash America? Where's your wealth coming from now? Canada? Mexico? South America? Europe? Asia? Russia? Where?

All those Union jobs went to 3rd world countrieswhere the Corporations can pay slave wages to slave workers with no protections for unfair labor practices and no benefits leaving behind the American worker that helped to make them profitable all their previous years.
All those millions of American workers can no longer afford to purchase the more shoddily made goods at higher prices that those corporations desire in the name of greed therefore eventually putting them too out of business like they put their former employees out of work.

On the day before the workers learn that their jobs are gone, will the union bosses move themselves and the union funds (pension, strike, political, etc) to the Cayman Islands, where they board a ship to parts unknown?

Just ask the union members of Eastern Airlines...Pan Am...countless trucking well the union did for them.

If there is any domestic airline that has not been forced through bankruptcy yet, it's because the unions have not yet squeezed hard enough.

The unions did well by them.
it has been the selfish corporations and Republican created recessions that has not done what's right for the vast majority of the American citizenry.
Thats why Willard MITTens Romney will NEVER be President!

No unions and greed in the form of union member "entitlement" destroyed Eastern Airlines and Pan Am and are in the process of destroying the US Auto Industry. Have you ever held a real job?

The Chicago teachers strike is over, but the public didn't win. Schools will still transfer bad teachers to other schools because it's nearly impossible to fire them. When bad teachers go from school to school, principals call it "the dance of the lemons." It would be funny if those teachers didn't slowly wreck children's lives.

The basic issue is: Who decides how to manage a workplace? Unions say it's good that they protect American workers from arbitrary dismissal and make sure everyone is treated equally.

But it's not good.

Rules that "protect" government workers from arbitrary dismissal and require everyone...
