Nancy. On the Military be nice. The reason for military support is that in order to meet mission requirements they are involuntary nomads. This moving has basically required the equivalent of nomadic support system to be there at each location. Tricare is the equivalent of business supplied health care.

I hear a lot of rhetoric but no solutions in this article.
Remember, views of tax rates are subjective and objective. But even objective analysis by business may say it is cheaper to move to a more competitive tax region than remaining. And a person paying a tax rate for years may not appreciate any increase thus initiating a search for a discount.

My problem is tenure in retention. If applied to automobiles I would have to drive a Model T. Even education should have the right to control costs thru quality analysis and best practices. I hate it when someone says, "We have always done it that way."

The unions must face that benefiting from increased profits is a two sided coin. If you demand increases in good times, you must face the fact there will be a decrease if business goes down.

Your comment is inaccurate. As business increased Romney used suppliers outside the US. The cost controls resulted in increased business and more employees hired in the US and at suppliers both in the US and outside. Also, some better products have patents controlled by companies outside the US. I am involved in the auto industry and frequently some better components are shipped from overseas. The lower cost and better quality allow for increased sales benefiting both US and overseas suppliers including increased employment on both sides of the border.

By Law non union members recieve the same benefits as union members. But they can't vote in elections. They get the negotiated raises and benefits. They are represented by the union in labor disputes. So it is fair that they pay for the union services and the expense extended on their behalf. But the argument on supporting union political or other non-service expenses is where the Supreme Court drew the line. Paying those expenses should be voluntary as supporting political positions against your beliefs involuntarily is a violation of free speech.

Union dues are mandatory. Church contributions are voluntary. There is no Comparison.
