    True, but since I hear stories about them qualifying for or being on welfare, doesn't that make the military part of the 'taker' problem? Shocking!

    If you don't want to give to the union then you don't have the right to the union job.

    Don't be a taker... even worse, taking from your fellow co-workers instead of taking from the government

    It's not the union's job; it's the employer's job opening...

    Isn't it funny how libertarians and conservatives are normally so keen on the sanctity and protection of contracts?

    It's not much of a contract when the State doesn't allow for a choice when doing business...

    You know what a contract is, right? An agreement freely entered into. Who is forcing employers to enter into a contract with a union? The state has no part in it.

    Uhm, if the State is non Right-to-Work, it most certainly plays a role...

    If a state is right-to-work it interferes with the right of two free parties to freely agree a legal contract.
