    Unions should be banned considering they're nothing but an extortion ring and our present labor laws are more than enough to ensure the safety of every worker.

    I'm not anti-Union. Nowhere near how the folks here think. At most I would be skeptical of the NEA (and its state affiliates) because of prior encounters in regard to other issues that a lot of times right-wingers view as a left-wing issue.

    That being said, your attitude toward non-union workers is appallingly immature.

    Well they may not be a kid per say.

    But dependant on childish reasoning to make their case for continued support of the Unions ? Yea

    Do you know what costs union workers their jobs? Non-union workers who will work for less money in unsafe working conditions, in order to fuel those nice big bonuses management awards to itself on a regular basis.

    Re: ‘Pressure tactics’: Unions publishing names of nonunion workers

    For those that support this "scab list" being made public....why? What is the use of such a public list if not to cause harassment? Putting flyers of the list up in the neighborhood the person lives in? What is the point in this list? If harassment is not the goal then why not just send a representative to that person to talk privately? It sure would cost less.

    As for those that say that such "scabs" are freeloading. It is your choice to join a union and pay the dues or not. It is also the union leaders choice to continue to ask for the things that they do eve knowing that those that don't pay union dues will benefit. Saying that these people are freeloaders is like saying that those that didn't vote but supported Obama are freeloaders because Obama happened to win due to everyone else that voted for Obama. Its silly and idiotic.

    And another member of the Far Right checks in with his opinion. Can you guys just get together and select one spokesman? You are all parroting the same junk from the same anti-union sources.

    I am really enjoying your behavior in this thread juxtaposed with your sig.

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.
    Oh, brother......I've had much better success and paid better in non union jobs.
    I just didn't like seeing lazy asses keep their jobs because of union protectIon.

    I would agree, except you have this incredible self-centered viewpoint toward your fellow-workers. Not everyone is going to be part of the Union club, Jack. That doesnt give you the need to be a jerk and encourage threatening behavior, because they chose not to join a voluntary organization.

    I suggest you re-read the OP, because that is not the topic.

    Or you can continue to be wrong
