Strangulation by Union

Unions back in the day had their place and usage, but they are out of date as is the crank telephone! They are not there for the workers but for those running them. When you do not force dues payment or forced joining (and hence forced dues payment), and forced collection is also forced payment, it is amazing by how fast those members quit!

Unions have become what they once beheld, their own corporations. Ironic and speaks volumes about human nature doesn't it?

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...
