    TO ALL UNION BASHERS

    As a retired union, ex-union and gov't employee I am here to tell the unions that you are all wrong in trying to brain wash the non-union workers to support you.
    Union is only good for the union member, fantastic for the union leaders and no one else.
    You the unions bring hardship and fear to the non union people. Your tools are threats, intimidation and violence to get your demands and they usualy work.
    The hards ship you bring to the non union people are: Raise the cost of living; raise taxes; reduce employment; and increase the number of poor people.
    Union lets tell it like it is.

    • As a retired union, ex-union and gov't employee I am here to tell YOU that you are wrong. History's lesson is unions are a positive force for creating and maintaining upward mobility. The few unions left in the USA still impact worker rights and protections for all employees. In the Federal Government unions protected employees from criminal and psychotic managers when the IG and legal staff were afraid to act - my dues, as a manager who supported unions, was a very good value.

    • Your right the union is the last dinosaur trying to tell it's member's they invented the wheel when everybody else has been allready driving. union members better catch up and get on the bus.
