Industrial Unions Send Billions $$$ to Dems Without Members Approval

Don't worry, when your buddies in the GOP make unions illegal you won't have to worry about it anymore.
 
GOP won't have too, unionism been imploding for several decades.........

True enough. I wonder though....after the tax cut is actually felt, and workers see that top execs are getting richer and richer, but they are only bringing home an extra $1,000 per year, unions might see a resurgence.

Doubt it....what they going to do go on strike? LOL

Organize. Or perhaps there are enough believers that all this money is going to trickle down to them that they'll continue to vote Republican and perhaps succeed in getting the tax rate lowered to 3% for the top 1%

How many will walk off their job and ruin their credit score these days?
 
Unions have no leverage anymore.
Their only tool in their toolbox is to withhold their labor.
Looking at the numerous failed strikes prove they have no leverage.
Unions have a tendency to bite the hand that feeds them then ***** about loosing their jobs.
Sorry I feel this way but I was very involved in Unions at one time.
The Eastern and NWA strikes taught me a very good lesson.

I became a union steward just prior to our strike at USAir when our present steward made a comment about don't be surprised if you see him being bused across the picket line.

I think it was ATL that had 100% cross.....I forget. Few in PIT including some probies......and the union made a big issue over that which most thought was BS.

Our second strike authorization was the type legends were made of. Everybody voted to walk thinking they'd never get a vote to walk and they did, then everybody who didn't think they'd get a vote to walk crapped their pants and demanded and got a second vote.

Easy credit killed the strike vote.

I heard " I got a wife and kids to support" too many times.

All fine and good. But what do you think the response from the average worker, union or non union, will be when they see peanuts tossed their way when it comes time for a raise while the execs get bonuses that buy them a beachfront mansion in Playa del Carmen?

Most likely nothing........piss and moan at best. Who are willing to walk and jeopardize their livelihood in this world anymore? That stuff is pretty much over. Most companies have learned how to placate the union experience, besides, the only ones who worry about 'peanuts tossed their way' are your socialist communists.

It bothers congress more until they're co opted by lobbyists.

So companies have us right where they want us....."quityerbitchin and get back to work...you're lucky you have a job". Wasn't there a time you were upset that Stephen Wolfe was pulling in a salary that was greater than the CEO's of Delta, American, Continental and United combined while asking you for pay cuts? They finally got you to come around.

Oh the golden parachutes and high salaries were issues.

But what you willing to do about it?

Get everyone to walk out and go Eastern and lose it all?

I worked with many from Eastern.....they talked a lot of talk but I'd love to have been a fly on their walls when they told the old lady everything we have just went out the window.

The 'Wolfe' gang of bandits raped United before US,Airways.
Ask ALPO what they did to United the summer of 2000.
And they were 'owners'.
 
When Onions watched (and some cheered and scabbed) NWA replace mechanics.
That sent a death nell for unions.
We can debate it started with the Air Traffic strike failure under Regan but they had no legal right to strike.
