I am pro union. And yes there are some bad ones out there but that don't mean they are all bad. And if you are anti union that is fine by me. You have the right to be treated like crap on your job if you so choose.
Any way, I just wanted to put up what I had posted on the subject matter:
Now someone brought up workers rights laws and OSHA. Research it, a number of unions were involved with getting the workers rights in place and setting the regs for OSHA. Unions pushed to get child labor laws in place and to set the 40 hour work week and overtime set at time and a half and workers comp laws and yes higher wages and better benefits. (it's not a bad thing to want better wages and benefits) Can all of the good that a union provides be abused?? You damn right it can, and it has been. Some union members have been abused by their own. Remember Jimmy Hoffa??
