    A recent book says that the biggest scandal in union history came during WW 2 when union activity reduced war production by about about 25%!!!

    In one case they refused to load a submarine until their working conditions were proper. Too bad their working conditions didn't include being bombed the way the sub crew's working conditions did.

    Why are union people thugs? They are taught that they are victims entitled to steal from those who stole from them. This is the same tactic liberal marxists used to attack American blacks.

    Most of the unions had a no strike policy during the war and took pay cuts to support the War, and I believe the Public Teachers Union took a 5% pay cut to help the war effort.

    You +1'd this publicly. Undo
    Workers staged work stoppages in 3000 separate instances across the country in 1942 and ... Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union prevented such behavior.

    They refused to load submarines and on balance cost us 25% of war production and God knows how many lives.

    Unions should be illegal again so they have to work for what they are worth just like the rest of us rather than for what legalized violence will get them at our expense.

    Yay! Republicans are cheering lower wages and no benefits. Yay!​


    The GOP has rewritten the American Dream. Good luck on that!

    actually higher wages for tax payers not those who steal from taxpayers. see why we are positive a liberal will be slow



    the American dream is to use government to steal wages from others who don't steal but earn their wages??
