Not to take one side or another but; Why is the US workforce down to only 17% unionized and 11% of that is Government unions?
Is anyone happy with the performance of our Unionized Government workers?
Yes I DO agree that the benefits that we all enjoy today were won by the Unions against the "Robber Barons". I am very thankful for them.
No I don't agree I need to pay an unskilled Unionized worker $75K with a thirty-years-and-your-out retirement to mount the tires on my new car [being built].
I also have seen "surplus" Unionized workers at a Local GM parts distribution center being warehoused at full pay playing cards/watching TV each day.
I also see plenty of extremely hardworking Friends at the Construction Locals here paying out their wages to corrupt Autoworkers and Government unions who hardly work at all. Instead of being part of the Brotherhood they are more like Leeches to their Union Brothers.
Just my observations....
