  •  Yes, there are a lot of union-haters here. (5+ / 0-)

    I don't belong to a union, I probably never will belong to a union, but some of the anti-union comments on this blog just sicken me.

      haters of all kinds, but the fact is unions are on the downward slide, their numbers are decreasing, especially teachers, with RttT and privatization, vouchers, charter schools, these programs all undermine Unions.

    •  I still have my UAW card . . . (1+ / 0-)

      . . . from when I worked in the auto plants to pay for my college.  This summer work, at good wages, allowed me to escape a lower working class life.

      I always will be grateful for the unions.  God bless the Reuther brothers (even though I am an athiest).

      of corrupt media. rightwing talking points that attack unions are propagated by media and viewing public unthinkingly absorb the attitude.

      the slanted and misleading studies that claim public union workers are paid more and enjoy more benefits - these were studies funded by the koch brothers and put out by rightwing think tanks like cato and heritage foundation.

      this points out how these billionaire funded studies are misleading.

      obama: we have done things that people don't even know about. (that's what i'm afraid of.)
