I say show me a union worker that does not shop Walmart or buy shoes, clothes, all kinds of products, motorcycles and ect. that is not union...HAAA! A bunch of hypocrites! You don't mind paying less for things that are not from union workers or union stores...you just don't want anyone else to pay less for you to having "higher wages"!! I think if you are in a union you should HAVE to buy union!!!! Or back the Coal Workers unions..your brothers, but OB wants to close them down! The steel workers union is gone because so many union workers did not buy things made with steel made in US, the same thing happened with the clothing industry here in America! Hypocrites!

The biggest myth about labor unions is that unions are for the workers. Unions are for unions, just as corporations are for corporations and politicians are for politicians.

Nothing shows the utter cynicism of the unions and the politicians who do their bidding like the so-called "Employee Free Choice Act" that the Obama administration tried to push through Congress. Employees' free choice as to whether or not to join a union is precisely what that legislation would destroy.

Workers already have a free choice in secret-ballot elections conducted under existing laws. As more and more workers in the private sector have voted...
