    Years ago (may still be true today), in some industries -- like construction -- the employer simply calls the union and tells them how many and what type workers they need. The union supplies the bodies (so to speak ).
    You can try to explain it all you want, but the union does not own any jobs.

    Since when does the union have jobs?
    They hire non-union labor to protest for them (they don't want to pay for the more expensive variety)...

    Come on now. I was totally being a dick. It's totally obvious that the union is the employer and I'd be a total bastard for *not* being in a union.

    When was this? 1895?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Must be different where you are ... here, in Colorado, I work with the local unions trying to place veterans. All of the trade unions (plumbers, carpenters, etc.) work as I described ... right now, they send potential employees to builder, but he selects who he wants ... there is a discussion going on about the union paying some portion of the training costs, but that hasn't been decided yet ... maybe there was a suit filed, or a law written, that made it different here.

    Nice of you NOT to read the story and simply say Fox is lying... how very... ummm... progressive of you.

    I find the Right To Work For Less crowd's outrage on this topic to be more than a little disingenuous, to say the least...
