If you need a great example of what unions can do... just look at Greece. The place is completely bankrupt thanks to the fact that 1/3 of the populace works for the government in one way or another, and their government union salaries, perks, benefits, have completely bankrupted the entire country which now needs a bailout.
Then there's France... strikes every five minutes... another weenie "we're all helpless and need to be supported" type country.
Abolish the unions, and make everyone stand on their own two feet instead of holding hands with their lazy-butt "brothers and sisters"... jeez. I mean, have you every seen a smart government worker? All unionized.
Right On!! Good example. Of course its a uphill battle since Obama Zombies have never heard of Greece or its current financial problems. They are so under/misinformed. Hey its got to be presented in a reality, MTV, Hip Hop, concert type format to get their attention.
I can't speak for all unions but when I worked at Boeing, maybe one out of 6 of the people I met seemed to give a damn about doing a good job. The rest just worked as slow as possible all week long so they could milk that Sunday double time. We worked 19 days on and 2 off for the better part of 5 months because of the lazy jerks with no lives. OT sounds great at first, but it gets old pretty quick.
I was all for the last strike; but not because of pay, but because of all the fricken mandatory OT. They threw more money at us, but still worked us like dogs.
If You, the Union, and the Shop Steward made the lazy workers work for a living, you would have made the numbers, and wouldn't have been worked like a dog... What goes around, comes around... The Good Workers should have made the difference... A Union is there to protect the workers from unreasonable business practices, NOT TO protect the LAZY! That's where the UNIONS fucked up...
