Workers are also to blame--striking for more of everything. I remember an Uncle who worked at the steel getting 12 weeks paid vacation every year.
Having been in business, I can say this: People don't seem to understand that any producing business has a maximum amount of money it can make through the sale of their products.
Prices have to be competitive, if one isn't willing to do that, then they have to eat the loss or close. Most of the jobs that are unionized are government jobs paid for by our taxes--if the workers and unions demand more, we are the ones who have to dig deeper into our pockets.
So if 15% of the nation is on welfare, a huge percentage are on un-employment and disability, 1% are the rich, that leaves the rest

to keep everything going. Then comes obamacare with it's 17 new taxes, higher food costs, reduction in Medicare and a lot of salaries followed by "death panels in the healthcare bill that will take care of people over 70 by not treating them if their non-medical panels don't think they can contribute anything to society or the cost is too high. After that comes the millions of abortions of babies who could have been producing throughout the years, paying taxes and into S/S----Who do we really have to blame? This didn't happen overnight. America has set the stage for political figures to feed our greed.

How right you are Luther, not only have unions infiltrated the public sector in the school systems but the federal government is overwhelmed by union corruption. Good example in point is the Davis Bacon Act which the unions got their buddies in Congress to pass in 1931 mandates any construction project benefiting from any government spending must pay top union scale to ALL non union workers participating on said project while union contractors are allowed to put one journeyman making top dollar with numerous certified apprentices (helpers) at a mere $10.00 an hour on the same job. This process assures only union contractors can have the lowest bids and thus get all the government work because the private sector cannot compete with them.

At long last unions are on the run and losing battles in multiple places at once. Let's take a look at some dates and headlines.

June 7, 2012 LA Times: 2 big cities OK cuts to worker pension costs

Landslide victories on ballot measures to cut pension costs in two major California cities emboldened reform advocates, who said they expect a flurry of copycat initiatives and increased support for Gov. Jerry Brown's long-stalled push to curb the state's obligations to its employees.
