In the wake of Wallmart asking it's employees to vote republican to thwart Unionization attempts. I thought we should talk about this issue. I will be the first to Admit that Unions have done a lot of Good for the working man, but take a look at the most heavily unionized industries in this nation, and you get a who's who of under performing industries in trouble. Auto Manufacturers. Air lines Steel manufacturers. Public sector. Teachers unions. ETC all these industries have consistently done poorly. Ask yourself why? It is due in large part to unrealistic Demands put on the companies by unions. Demands that ignore the health of the Industry at the cost of the workers, in order to make short sighted gains in pay and benefits.
