    I never have and pray that I never will.
    Working people should support other workers when they go on strike.

    Yeah, in Britain you would get the shit beat out of you because you cant protect yourself. I have crossed picket lines all the time, and if anyone wanted to get in my face, they would back off real quick.

    Hard for me to say this but my father was a union leader, still is.. and I would absolutely cross the line.. UNIONS the past 30 years are over corrupt, the monopoly they have created with the help of democrat mayors have killed African American private small businesses.
    It’s time to get rid of unions and return only with a set of rules that private business break.

    I have crossed picket lines at grocery stores when their whoevers were on strike. I have never personally worked anywhere that was unionized, but if I did and was not in the union, I would cross it without hesitation. As an employee, my duty would be to my employer.

    As an employee my duty is to ensure I'm not getting screwed over by my employer. My loyalty is to my family, not my employer. That being said I've never worked in a union but I have no issues with them.

    I think unions are no longer necessary and currently take advantage of the system and do not benefit the consumer whatsoever. All should be disbanded:
