    Again, I suspect feigned ignorance for this issue has surely been discussed a gazillion times... but for those that truly may not be able to figure it out on their own, if enough non-paying workers take union jobs then the union will lack the funds to sustain itself and die (or be voted into dissolution). At that point the union contract will be lost, and the remaining union workers (all the workers, actually) will likely see a reduction in wages and/or benefits.

    It's just like paying income taxes... if a few people decide to just quit paying, even though they can afford to, and subsequently a sufficient number of others follow suit then government fails. Now while the conservatives probably like that scenario, sensible people know that things society depends on will fail too -- police, certain healthcare services, bridge/road repair, airline traffic control, banking controls, military, etc -- chaos.

    I'll be happier if I've increased their standard of living and they pay it forward to the next worker.

    I'm referencing right to work state employees who don't pay dues yet are covered by union protections due to federal laws in this specific instance.

    I didn't say she paid income taxes. I assume that she has bought things and paid sales tax. If she owns a house, she's paid taxes on that and if she rents, some of her rent goes to pay taxes.

    The situation presented in the OP is not the result of a strike. The topic appears to be right-to-work freeloaders, not actual picket line crossers.

    IS THAT what you're saying the article is misrepresenting (I can't help but notice you've completely avoided my repeated requests to clarify your statement).

    The bolded line in the article you claimed you had issue with did not claim that there was proof intimidation did happen, it stated that it makes intimidation or harassment EASIER.
    The intent of the Fox article is clear and that is to portray the union as intimidating non-union employees which is propoganda. You can pretend that is not the point of the article, and this thread, but that is clearly the intention

    The cons know that but they always play the intellectually dishonest semantics game when the topic of the poor paying taxes comes up. Every. Time. How they mentally endure so much fail is beyond me.

    Right to work is one of the reasons States like Texas can provide job opportunities to the Millions of economic Refugees from plague States like California and Michigan.

    Good hard working people come here to find jobs and raise their Families and calling them " freeloaders " is just a another example of pro-Union thuggery.

    so suddenly even though the topic was workers that come into a factory or workplace during a strike, because you found yourself in an untenable position you are now shifting to state employees.

    Okay.

    "Freeloaders"? Are these people standing around and doing nothing for their paychecks?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
