Every industry the unions take over dies. They pillage and rape it till it moves overseas. Just a few. Steel Industry...Airlines...Textiles...Communications...the list goes on. I was a member of The United Steel Workers Union for 3 years. I saw how they bullied, intimidated, and robbed their own members. Thankfully, unions are in full decline. I hope Walmart kicks them to the next world before they give them a foot in. The only people unions enrich are their leaders and government lackeys.

These are jobs that are integral to this country and can not leave. If the Chinese figure out how to prefab and ship a complete road, more union jobs are going down.

Actually they keep the most inept on the payroll so they can be recruiters.
I worked in a union situation(in a right to work state) and some of the folk I was obliged to work with, at the same pay, had to have someone bring them to work or they would probably get lost.

Perhaps it was the radio segment that I did this week asking for comments and feedback about unions. I asked on the air for people who were union members to call our listener line at 202-681-1732 or email us at

I was looking for comments about the good and bad that goes along with being represented by unions.

Still looking for comments, and now want them even if you don't have a union.  

Personally I think unions are outdated relics of an age that belong more to Stalin than to Dickens.

Or maybe it was the Facebook picture I posted...
