    I never went to university. My job could be pretty much be classified as a 'skilled trade'. I'm not worried about being replaced by somebody else. That said, I find this to be a good idea regardless of whether you're a Republican or Democrat. People work their asses off trying to repay off school loans from careers which simply don't pay what was invested in them while at the same time struggling to pay off house bills etc. Essentially, I think universities are OVERPRICED for the jobs which people acquire once out of them. As one musician put it:

    You pay 150K just to earn 50K a year.
    Oh and where would you be without the labor union?? oh yea replaced by someone who will do a better job than you do for less...

    Union members are hardly skilled...

    Unions can't replace talent. You can't train to do what I do. You're either born with it or you're not.

    Non-union workers are far more talented and work way harder just because they have more to lose. Union workers are protected by the unions so they can make crap and do a crappy job and they have absolutely nothing to worry about...

    I can do anything you can do, I probably can do more -- way more.

    What utter nonsense. I suppose you have some way to verify that? Maybe putting a union worker beside a non-union worker?

    Gather evidence instead of assuming? HAH! Liberal nonsense.

    Even public universities are getting pricey. I know my alma mater (Berkeley) has more than doubled its tuition in the last 5-10 years.

    I wonder how this will apply to graduate loans. Hopefully it will. All of my loans have been through the federal government and I started college in 2008. Maybe I'll be in good shape when I graduate and have $240,000-$500,000 in debt to pay back.

    Yeah - I do - it's called personal experience. I worked a union job, I worked non-union job(s) and I can tell you that non-union workers are smarter, work harder and care about their product while (most) union workers don't care about anything just as long as they get paid and are required to do the least bit of work possible.

    Union workers have no incentive to make a good product because the union will always back them, non-union workers have to make a good reliable product because they can be booted at any time for making a piece of sh*t.

    Understand?

    I've worked both and my personal experience shows the opposite. Union workers were better paid and happier, and this led to better work because they enjoyed their work more.

    Does my anecdote cancel out your anecdote?
