    how important unions are not only to the country, but to workers everywhere.

    I've learned that whenever the politicians or business owners try to bust a labor organization, it is all about money.  Workers suffer while the idle rich and their politician lackeys keep focusing on the incoming cash. Politicians and the wealthy join forces to pass laws to stifle the middle class and working poor.

    I hope that the 1 percent got to see the decline in work quality from trying to close out unionized workers. However, they won't recognize the difference because their spoiled, gated lives shield them from ever recognizing the hardship the average person goes through during these occurrences.

      If only we could get every labor situation this much publicity.  Especially with this much clarity about the effect on everyone involved.

      Fear is a tool and so are the people who fall for it!
