rocknrobn26 Posted November 20, 2009 Share Posted November 20, 2009 The union brotherhood/sisterhood. If you don't understand now.....you'll never understand. God bless all my union brothers and sisters. Are unions perfect? NO! But I'll take their imperfection vs relying on big business, the educational sector treating me fairly. How many company owners died fighting for their cause? Yeah...union brothers died in their cause! (read your history) How many lives have been saved by unions protecting not only their own but all that work in the related industries (non-union) vs the company looking out for them? More than you'll ever count. Unions have lost their purpose? Yeah...sure...and so has equality rights. Age, Sex, Race and the rest! I said I wouldn't post in the "Other" thread, but I have to comment on the mindless posts in the other thread! Yeah Chi is losing convention business. And the UNIONS are the only blame??? That's laughable. How about Chi's outrageous sales and hotel taxes? Not to mention parking fees that are equally outrageous? Unions may be a part of it, but get real...too many factors in Chi to zero in on the Unions as the only factor regardless of what the convention reps say. If I violated something by creating this post, then ban me, chastise me, or do whatever is appropriate. But the green puke that is spewed by a few pompous asses who have no idea how unions are needed needs to be addressed. Unions are here and I pray they always will be. They created America and stand FOR AMERICA! it's called FREEDOM! If you live in a state that involves hiring union workers and only union workers...live with it. Choose to move where that isn't the case. If you live in a right to work state and can pay lower wages...good for you. Outside of Chi proper, union membership is not as big a deal. The burbs are no where near that. But I digress... I always laugh at how the anti-union people are afraid/hate 14% of the working population. Feeling naked? 14%??? !!! Nuff said. BTW...Teachers and others who do NOT have to join a union have restricted rights, long story, and are called "Fair Share" Members. I truly appreciate the quotes from Yo Mama, Atomic, Yuke, Ursa, Sac, Skippy, et al. (sorry if I forgot someone) Thinking people w/ no agenda. Gotta give their opinions some credibility regardless of where you stand. Peace to all, but THINK FIRST, then talk/comment/discuss! rr26 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
