Certainly your choice, but I am waiting to see how the GOP hurt you and your family more than the union did?If you enjoyed last weekend thank a union.
Honestly though, I got screwed pretty hard by the union. I worked for three years at Local #113 and a lot of money was put into my pension plan from my employer. The job moved to Chicago and I had to transfer to Local #2. Same union, different local. I worked there 2 years until the job was done.
But because I wasn't at local # 113 for four full years I wasn't "vested." And because local #113 and local #2 did not have a "reciprocity (sp?)" agreement" between them, I lost ALL of the money my employer paid into my pension. Five years worth. That was THOUSANDS of dollars. The union KEPT it all.
So, needless to say, I got a F.U. in my pocket for unions.
What does upset me is the rightwing hypocracy of wanting to keep government out of the private business sector while, all the while, approving of government sticking their dick skinner's in the unions. And the lie they use to justify their hypocracy about actually caring for these workers is just mind boggling. Rightwing corporatist type people don't give two snits for workers. Never have, never will. They just as soon have a chinaman do their work. This is just the government, under republican dominance, attempting to diminish their competition (democrats) by going after their revenue streams. No more, no less. They do not care about workers, union or not. It's all about their dirty politics. Gerrymandering, voter oppression, union busting, is what they are doing in attempt to bolster their OWN power and assure the rich continue to get richer and the poor continue to get poorer and more dependant on the rich.
No. I'm no fan of the union. But I hate the GOP much, much more.
