it is the big national unions that cause most of the issues.
the reason is that their operating costs are so high that they are running out of money while paying big fat checks to union bosses. I find it funny that these guys are suppose to be for the working man while making 300k+ a year. that comes from YOUR paycheck.
so while you make strike pay of 25 a week they are getting full checks. the only reason your on strike is because they talked you into it or the majority of people into it.
it is the national labor guys that you have to watch out for.
Unions and union dues seem to be generated now to wine and dine and pay the union executive, hold negotiations in posh hotels and convention centers, send union executives to Vegas and other locals for conferences, pay high priced labour lawyers, set aside some cash for meager strike pay, and most importantly of all establish slush funds to front politicians who do their bidding in municipal, state, and federal government. It's why unions are so out of favour these days.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
there is a difference in a union representing their workers to the company and then spending dues on candidates that they members might not support.
