Obviously, like any high powered businessman, Trump does not like unions.

I just saw a report of a country in West Virginia where more than 75% of voters cast their hope in Trump to bring back the coal-mining industry. If those poor folks really think that coal will be cheaper to harvest than natural gas (never mind the pollution) then demagoguery has won over reason and reality. Sad, really.

Now, when blue collar workers in those "rust-belt" states realize that they've backed the wrong horse, either they will turn against unions for not adequately heralding the scam perpetrated against them.....OR......unions will become stronger to better lobby for the common worker's rights.

Yes, sorry...made a type-o and meant county.......but if you ever traveled within some parts of West Virginia, you'd see that they do resemble a third world COUNTRY.
