  •  If your mom... (2+ / 0-)

    If your mom had ever held a union job, I'm sure she would change her opinion. I work with plenty of people who were previously anti-union. Now that they have union jobs, all of them agree that the union is the best thing that ever happened to them. More money, more protection, better benefits, and actual employee rights, something most workers these days can't even imagine.

      at places like Lockheed (back when it was Martin Marietta).

      When I was at Qwest (now Century Link) my dad was so anti-union he suggested I should quit the job just because it was a unionized workplace - out of "principle". When he passed he was making a six figure salary in his consulting business.

      liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
