    Parting the Red Sea had to be a very convincing argument. Who's gonna say no after that, except that idiot Edward G. Robinson.

    Except he didn't really "organize the labor" until after they left the job.

    He would have been crocodile food if it had not been for the fact that the Pharaoh was his adoptive brother.

    If he is, then when will the Hebrews stop the strike and come back to work?

    Looks like never!

    Considering he didn't negotiate with their 'employer' for better work conditions, I would say no.

    He demanded complete freedom from the tyrannical government, not to compromise with it.

    A ringing endorsement for collective bargaining rights!

    Bargaining with who? Unions bargain with their employers, to get more benefits from them. Not to leave the company and go be on their own. :eusa_whistle:

    Employees do not need collective bargaining rights to quit. They can do that on their own. Which is what separates employees from slaves.

    In the days of the Pharoah when the slave asked for better working conditions they got a spear in the chest, so much for unionization.

    Yeah! Who needs good working conditions? Why, that just cuts into the bonuses companies can pay to the executive suite! And those are the people who work hard and are smart! Just ask the guys over at Bear Stearns or Enron or Worldcom!

    Employees would be better off with a spear in the chest.
