You folks that are anti union need to keep working for McDonalds wages & benefits. Without unions / organized labor could and can get ran off without the grievence process. Not only that....If it were not for unions, the average bear would still have dirt floors in their houses !!!

At least that’s what I see posted by California libs. How can this be when 1/8 of Americans live in California but 1/3 of welfare recipients live in this state. And it’s only downhill form now since libs have uncontested power in CA now. I only hope the rest of the country won’t have to bail them out.

If unions are so great for the workers why UAW has been rejected time after time at auto plants in southern states? UAW has tried to unionize them numerous times and got rejected by the WORKERS not evil management. And before you embarrass yourself again posting nonsense do your homework. “Right to work” states have not only higher growth of jobs but also growth of average income. Buy the way when you compare income make sure you also look at cost of living in the states you compare. For example cost of living in California is 40% higher than in Texas so you have to look at salaries in these states accordingly. Looking just at the numbers you would think California is a paradise on Earth. At least that’s what I see posted by California...

It is obvious that your education came from the unionized teachers. Many of them can not write an organized sentence or paragraph either.

The Detroit News recently reported that union membership has declined five-tenths of a percentage point – 11.8 to 11.3 – in the workforce.

“Total union membership fell by about 400,000 workers to 14.4 million. Teachers unions were among the hardest hit, with the ranks of public school teachers and educators falling sharply,” it noted.

The thinning union ranks are blamed on state budget cuts which have resulted job losses for teachers and other government sector employees, found.

The AP report did not mention that some teachers are choosing to walk away from their union. But that’s exactly...
