    If someone doesn't want a union job they should.... not be forced to pay tribute to a union as a condition of employment.

    So... take responsibility and seek employment elsewhere - or get the state to force businesses to provide jobs tailored to their liking?

    No. Not be required to join a worker union at their employer of choice. It isn't complicated..

    What's "free market" about forcing people to pay for services they don't want?

    :lmao:




    you left out quite a few choices.

    alright.... how about this.

    business A hires a person B. Person B is very happy with the new job... but is also informed its a "union shop" and if he wants to work...he has to join the union and pay dues?


    Why?

    the business hired him. Person B wants to work for them..... Why should the unions be allowed to force him to join and pay dues.... or not let him work.

    If someone doesn't want a union job they should....be hired as a non-union employee and get a bonus for not engaging in extortion against the company that's giving them a job.

    Could you imagine the hostility toward the non-union scab?

    Talk about an HR nightmare...like throwing a pedophile into general.

    you are free to seek employment elsewhere.. and the employer should be free to kick out a union to keep positions open for on-union employees, if the union tries to stiff arm employees into joining the union
