    They can vote out the union when their contract expires.

    My favorite quotes:

    Haha. It's called compulsory unionism, sweetheart. Move to a Right to Work state.

    What the hell do you think they've been doing for the last 80 years??

    Do you know why?

    Its called a contract.

    These members are protesting a cut in pay from their government employer.

    The union agreed to it to keep them all employed

    Your thread title is awfully deceptive...but you stole it from a hack right wing sight so I guess you get a pass on that one.

    It isn't "California", but two groups of county workers in Fresno. Also, these groups aren't leaving unions, just SEIU...to start another UNION.

    Probably the vast majority of them. I have a job and I'm not in a union.
