Unions do no postive service to the workers. Those who always profit are the union bosses. Private sector workers are well aware of this. On the other hand, public employee unions are completely out of hand, and before long they will bankrupt our country. These people might as well be tenured since it is almost impossible to fire them. Merit is not considered - it is only how long they have been employed. American taxpayers have been raped by these people long enough. These unions have to GO!
