Ahhh, Unions... :blush:

This is one reason why I HATE unions & will never work a job that requires me to join one.

These arent right wing fascists attacking our rights...this is Left leaning Labor.
Modern American unions are nothing more than legalized mafia extortion rackets...and this proves it.


Although, the phrasing of the bill makes it sound more generally scary than it really is...I believe it has to do with influencing votes on union shops/membership issues.

Well it has to pass both houses and be signed into law, then stand up to potential legal challenges, but the bill as written is really quite awful. Anyone else getting a weird "Phantom Menace" vibe besides me? Freedom is dying to the sound of thunderous applause, methinks.

And, yes, Stunt, most Unions wield way too much power- and now they are not afraid to flex it. There is more to the entire bill than just the Union stuff, and that is what scares me the most. We are seeing these massive bills full of many provisions being rushed through votes before anyone has a chance to read and understand all of it, much less point out the flaws. This bill has lots of flaws in it, and hopefully it will die.

I hope so. But that doesnt mean it couldnt be interpreted differently later on... you know, like our constitution that prohibits this?

Unions...

They have a place. And that is for workers employed by very powerful corporations. However, unions DO abuse their power. They should be there only to ensure a safe and fair workplace. They shouldn't act as a cancer to the corporations that employ their members.

As for this bill, my usual response.

...

Sigh.

This is why I never have and never will work for a union. They do just as much bad as they do good. I've heard great things about them, but I've heard just as many horrible things.
