    Answer, the broke USSA.

    Liberals speak a good talk about workers rights and livable wages, however, if you were to abandon the free market and pay workers above their market worth then economic disaster would come to the United States. You will never eliminate the bottom 20%. Nevertheless, Karl Marx viewed unions as the vehicle to socialism/communism, which is why the modern democratic party are socialists. If unionization is good for a few companies then they would be good for all companies right? Wrong.

    Pubic, you're full of shit. Every job does not need to be unionized. Unionization is the result of unfair and overly greedy management practices, i.e. bullies. Many companies treat their employees with the respect they deserve; consequently, their employees have no need or desire to unionize.

    Yep, unionization has always been a last ditch reaction to exploitative bullshit.

    So just minimum wage jobs like Retail, Fast Food, and such? Because everyone knows that government unionized workers have experienced a plethora greedy management practices, and thus, needed to unionize to keep the man off their backs. :rolleyes:

    I think it's interesting that the unions are being blamed for what's largely been political corruption and incompetence and most importantly the devaluing of the American dollar as a result.

    "Card Check" is any process by which an employees' right to a federally supervised private ballot election is taken away. This can occur by union organizers coming to a business and asking workers to sign a card in public, or by having mail-in cards; the union, your co-workers and your employee will still know how you voted.

    Why do they have to know how you voted, so they can go upside yo head if you didn't vote their way...

    Are unions really violent?
    According to the National Institute for Labor Relations, there have been over 9000 recorded incidences of union violence, but have recorded only 1,963 arrests and 258 convictions.

    What is Card Check?

    Actually, your stupidity contains some truth. Government unions have limitations and restrictions that private sector unions don't have. BTW, have you ever worked for Uncle Sam? I have...
