  •  picket lines (0+ / 0-)

    When I grew up in the 1950s, I was told never to cross a picket line--it was disrespectful of those people on the line.  Somehow, Americans forgot this--especially when AFL/CIO workers crossed PATCO's lines.  And that disrespect has been the death knell of the union movement--and the beginning of the slide out of middle class.
    Tech workers today are mostly not unionized--thinking they're different and don't need unions.  As grandma used to say, "some people are smart, and smart, and stupid."   They should look at what happened to pilots and stewardesses after the fall of PATCO.
    Hopefully, unions return in favor without resorting to violence-- but I doubt it.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
