    The popularity of unions are taking a hit in this economic crisis.


    48% See No Further Need for Labor Unions, 30% Disagree


    64% think Boeing has the right to open the plant in South Carolina while just 21% disagree. When respondents are told that the NLRB believes that opening the plant is an act of retaliation against the union, the numbers barely move. Only 17% think the agency has the right to prevent Boeing from opening the new facility while 64% disagree.

    I can't believe that this thread doesn't have more posts?! IMHO the NLRB needs to be disbanded. If you want to know why jobs are leaving the US just look at the empty Boeing plant in SC.

    Then look at the thugs in Wisconsin whining about a valid political process where they lost power. Kasich on OH is also finding out about union thugs. IMHO State employees should not be allowed to unionize, same as the Federal employees. They have guaranteed jobs, they don't need unions. Besides their pensions are sinking States as well as companies.

    2012 will show unions where they stand, or unemployment will hit 20%

    I think unemployment will rise.
