    It was American "unions" who decided that foreign workers weren't worth fighting for--and indeed were enemies to be fought AGAINST.

    And they paid the price for their shortsightedness.

    I had that discussion with them back in 1988.  Now, they're no longer around to discuss anything with.

      in Chicago many years ago, while in college.  I was often struck by the shortsightedness of the union members, honestly.  I understood it but it made me sad.  That company eventually closed down most (80%) of its union shop and moved all the business it could to the suburbs where they paid 1/2 of the wages and far-less appealing benefits for the same work.
