    I for one believe that even on their worst day, their good for the blue collar worker.

    Unless of course you want to work for a Company, live in a Co-op house, and shop at a Co-op store.

    Without the Unions, decent pay, pay raises, benefits and retirement would be non-existent.

    A lot of people ( Those without Union Representation ) I believe hate unions, because of their jealousy. I believe they should fight to UNIONIZE!!!!

    Have any of You listened to Rush, Beck & Hannity and noticed how they complained about people having class envy against them. Then through mis-direction they started bashing unions, and now everyone wants to bash unions. Now I ask you, why would Rush, Beck & Hannity bash unions, unless it's because maybe they have class envy, they say it's lonely at the top, who knows maybe it is. Let me know what You think.

    Unions were a necessity but they've morphed into what they originally fought against . . money grubbing leeches.

    Unions are bad. They are only out for the dues.

    Well, I guess it's back to working for the Company, living in a Company House, shopping at the Company store, until I ask for a pay raise, without union representation.

    Then the next thing You know I'm living with my family in a cardboard box in Shanty Town, warming my hands over a 55 gallon barrel that's burning trash.

    I don't believe Union Boss's are any worse the CEO's, Boards of Directors, or CFO's of big conglomerate companies, I think we have Corporation greed and NAFTA to thank for the downfall of the middle class, more so than union boss's.

    Fuck unions, i used to work for a union company, i was better at my job and worked harder than the other members, but could not be rewarded for my performance. I was paid the same rate as the other members who were lazy and stupid for the most part. I left that company and quickly moved up Operations Manager for a non union company and am being compensated much better than before. So you're wrong again, corky......
