    As the state is RTW, they could vote to form a union and have nobody join.

    Okay, thanks.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    What other choice does he have to break into the market - which is precisely my point! - No union - no business.

    I say **** that - no unions.

    German companies are not as adverse to unions because unions are deeply embedded in their culture. They have even learned to be partners. Workers are not perceived as low lifes.

    Oh, you talking about right to work law which is either law in TN or not. What does thus have to do with OP?

    And every company or corporation is NOT unionized.... Unions have just found a way to invade certain industries and take them over like Education, the auto industry, some parts of manufacturing just to name a few..

    And they're all greedy psychopaths that are all under the delusion that the jobs they do are unique to themselves and no one else can do them at a lesser wage and be happy doing it..... Of course everytime these clowns don't get their mandatory 10% wage hike every year and free pizzia on Friday they throw a **** fit and go on strike and pretend they're victims of oppression.

    Their greedy psychological games don't impress me at all.

    With your presentations here, you are very ironic and twisted to suggest that unions have a greedy psychological persona while apparently not seeing the one in the mirror.

    That's because Germans have accepted it - especially after the whole "wall thing" - Germans are quasi-communists, and that is how they had to be and act for that wall to fall.

    This has more to do with history than Unions.

    Um, it has more to do with German workers feeling they too deserve a piece of the pie.

    No the real irony here is the simple fact that most union workers don't have a damn clue as to how a business or corporation works.

    Yeah you're right - I don't need a union - because I do good work and work hard - and I don't need protection from some union delegate to make excuses for me.... In short I'm the harder and more intelligent worker, and guys like me need no representatives to make any excuses for our work because there arn't any excuses to be made.

    That's why so many people are opposed to unions and support right to work legislation - because they know they're the best workers and don't need to pay some bitch union dues just to keep a job - which amounts to extortion.
