    Organized labor is communist thugs, the only reason the communist thugs failed in the US is the Sicilians, they were more brutal and they took over the unions, and run them with an iron fist. That's how the likes of the Pelosi dynasty got their start... and the Newsomes.. its all in the family...

    That's one way to look at it. Organized labor is holding employees back. Why would they try harder if somebody is giving them something for free? Without organized labor you can earn a better wage instead of being given the same as all the other slackers at work.

    "Increased income inequality is all due to organized labor. Think about it. Remember hostess union death? yeah... and union bosses were still funding jobs exports by politicians with union workers money.

    But you drink the coolaid, so you will not see it.

    I don't remember, never joined a union, was able to fend for myself, but, unions have a place. Anything that's corrupt turns bad.

    Nah, I don't drink any of that stuff. I tend to think for myself rather than listen to or watch prognosticators...

    Nice story and if that's the case income inequality should be decreasing, like union membership.

    See above.
    Think about it. Remember hostess union death?

    Yes I recall that event, do you recall the details?

    Along with the concessions that had already been given up to that point?

    Yes, the ivory towers never make a mistake.
    It's always someone else who is to blame.

    Don't follow leaders blindly. Think for yourself. It's increasingly apparent that no one will do it for you. This is disappointing news, but not unexpected. I am in agreement.
