  •  Why do the Rs hate unions? (3+ / 0-)

    Let us count the ways:
    1. Unions contribute money to D candidates and office holders, and campaign for them, get their members to vote for them, etc. etc.
    2. Workers are a necessary evil - if you have to have them, pay them as little as possible to maximize profit for owners - unions interfere with this important fact
    3. Unions institutionalize bad behaviors like laziness, and sloppyness, and seniority and make it harder to fire employees (particularly for illegal reasons) and exploit them and treat them badly.
    4. Its not fair for the companies that have to work with union labor to compete with companies that don't
    5. Unions are a pain when they fight for safe working conditions, health care and pensions.
    6. Unions are fronts for organized crime and union leaders are all jack booted thugs.
    7. Unions fight to make companies actually pay for experience.
    8. Union members are part of the 47% and the 99% - AKA the Enemy.
