To Paulus Textor. You need to read up on labor law before making ignorant statements about organizing and unions. I think you will find Mr. Stossel has a labor contract with his employer which has many clauses that protects him and his family, and provides him with an excellent standard of living with a very generous salary and benefits package far superior to yours. I would be very interested to see it. But we won't. Check out Barbara Walters contract. Her Agent is a genius.

You need to see "On the Waterfront," and "The Sopranos" to get an understanding of the evil of unions. They are so coercive that organized crime cannot resist them as tools for larceny. Union Racketeering is so evil that even one of the most iconic American Liberals, Bobby Kennedy, spent many years of his life trying to bring Jimmy Hoffa to justice. Who runs the Teamsters now? Jimmy Hoffa Junior. Hoods!

Organized Labor and Organized Crime working together for a better America- just ask Jimmy Hoffa!!!

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...
