There was a time and place in this country for the unions but its time for necessity is over.

Badger said this first there are jobs all over the world if you are willing to work.

List them.

Sorry badger but today yur just another union bashing parrot.
Its human nature to be greedy and pay as little as you can for labor. Unions are agents. I guess you are really pissed off at pro sports venue pricing due to all pro athletes having an agent....or the rich all having legal representation in every aspect of their lives? Saying unions had their time and place is asinine at best.

Any of you who want lower wages also must support illegal immigration and the low wages they are willing to illegally work for, yet i'll bet to a man you all call yur damn selves conservative as well.
Go fuck yourselves....polly ....bagawk!

Many large corporate companies in this country treat their employees like shit.
You will have that with unskilled labor. And in general there are the shit companys out there. That is a difficult situation to change in retail. Skilled labor/professional is completely different situation. I was in a union for 12 years, (1982 - 1994) absolutely worthless. Unions had there place but that is long gone in this business climate. I would of done better with out the union. I say ReNationalise, screw globalization. Take care of are own first then worry about the rest. Unions are the reason we lost 35% of are manufacturing base. Plain and simple. You want to change that, make it a equal playing field & watch all the Usa companies come back like they have been recently doing. I agree with Trumps methodology, it will work for the USA. Some goods will cost more in the end but it will drive up US wages as a result of the policy. We are still the largest economy in the world & other countrys still want to do business with us. They have much more to lose & that is our barganing Ace in the hole.
