      the number of people who post. They are treated fine, by all accounts. There are plenty of mistreated workers in the world, but this place ain't one of them. The last thing we need here right now is labor strife due to outside agitators.

        workplace? that sounds like a right wing commercial in a right to work state.

        since when is the only reason to form a union because you're treated poorly?

          there is no need for any of us to interfere in the private relationship that exists between staff and management a Dkos. Just because we are permitted to say anything on this blog does not mean we should be encouraging people to unionize without any provocation or knowledge that they desire our interference. It's really none of our business what the workers at Dkos wish to do with respect to their employment.

            unions, but if i give mine, then that's me "interfering in the private relationship that exists between staff and management"?

            last i checked, i wasn't encouraging anyone to do anything, at least i don't think the words i used reflect anything like that.

            but carry on.

            •  You can talk about unions all you (0+ / 0-)

              want. But to talk about the employees of this specific blog organizing a union is just rude for we guests to do. It is none of our business and it is inappropriate for us to chit-chat regarding the private relationship that exists between Markos and his employees.
