Should other businesses follow Wal-Mart's example and get rid of their labor unions?

While unionized businesses (such as General Motors) are in dire straits at the moment, non-unionized Wal-Mart is continuing to make a profit. There has never been clearer evidence that labor unions destroy businesses and cause workers to lose their jobs while using forced "dues" from the workers they harm to fund socialist politicians who cause even more harm to the workers with their economically disastrous policies. Isn't it about time to eliminate those glorified wings of organized crime that we call labor unions and strengthen our economy?

Dude! You took the wind out of my sails. The only thing I can add is that if Walmart was unionized, it wouldn't be a discount store any more. Labor unions over inflate the price of substandard products. Yes, eliminate the unions/labor barons and restore the American standard of products and productivity.

YES!!! Unions at on time were good for America. But in todays age there all about power and money. Not one concern for the worker. They don't realize that they are killing the tree that feeds them.

I think the union was a good idea at one time but it is outdated and needs to be refedined.

wal mart and HEB do not hire union employees and their workers earn more per hour and have better benefits than the competition, and both business are a success.

Most union drives are not about money to begin with , most of the problems are how people are treated in the work place.
