Bye Bye American Unions – Don’t Let the Door Hit You

There is this general belief among the ill-informed (mostly liberals) that unions somehow benefit all workers in the U.S. That may have been true 100 years ago when unions made headway into workers rights. But in those days, the rights of workers were so inhibited, that they could barely pass as human rights. The recent decision in Wisconsin dealt a blow to unions and so called collective bargaining.

So who cares? According to this source, which is a relatively recent article, the percentage of U.S. workers who belong to a union is less than 13%. That means that less than 1 in 7 working persons in the U.S. at the time of this article was covered by some kind of union. So the reality of today is that relatively few workers have a union standing behind them. This makes the union folks nothing more than a special interest group. And it’s odd that these union bosses resemble the thug-like ‘copper bosses’ that the unions fought so hard against long ago. Like this union rep who struck a 5 foot 1 woman who was filming the scene.

Michelle Malkin has a full story on this goon at her site here. Sorry Unions. You don’t represent American values any more. Step aside and take your place in the annals of history where you belong.
