Are Union members being paid twice the $ for 1/2 the work + huge pensions destroying our economy?

Shouldn't we all strike against the Unions and refuse any service they are involved in? Especially the government Unions which should be illegal? I mean can you imagine a Unionized Military? Are workers for the government less vital? Well I said that wrong, if the government wasn't a bloated bag of crap, wouldn't federal workers be as vital as the military if they were performing in legitimate jobs actually allowed under the Constitution?

No, we should all get paid as well as Union workers. My friend works at UPS for 11 years and like 17+ hr part time. He works hard, it is like military type motivation at UPS.

If that was true, then wouldn't all unionized industries go south of the border in just a few months? They are not. And you have no evidence, just your rant.

They don't help. Union workers get too much protection. They get paid far too much in some unions but get the shaft in the teachers union.

It sure helps. The American unions are the main reason stated by Chrysler why they built their two most advanced factories in Mexico and Canada. They could not reach an agreement with the union. ()

The military is more similar to a unionized arrangement than you think - highly bureaucratic, clear and documented chains of command and job descriptions, established grievance procedures, the whole nine yards really.

that is true and no one can ask them to work

You're welcome to boycott Union handled goods, but it means spending a considerable amount of money for the the most basic needs. Unions are just another product of the free trade that conservatives have preached.

Yes but they do donate a lot of money to the DNC. The unions plan to become more competitive is to force all other companies to unionize. In other words, if what we are doing makes us less competitive then we should require everyone else to be less competitive.

Union workers have been known to abuse the system. Have you ever driven by county road workers? Eight of them stand and watch while one does the work. They were exposed in my county, coming to work late, meeting for breakfast, taking mid morning breaks, long lunches, afternoon breaks, urinating on the side of the... More

Congress are not Union but they get 3/4 their $175,000 a year salary after 10 years and can retire at age 50 but are going to make YOU wait til age 70 for a few hundred bucks so dont blame the unions until you have worked in a dirty hot 110 degree foundry for 25 years
