Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Just to clarify, Wiggin earlier in this thread tried to make a distinction that these people that are being called "scabs" here are parasites.
To be clear, all employees are parasites, but they are necessary to run the business.
Union workers make more than they are worth and get benefits they did not earn so I don't see how anybody can defend them, other than the parasites taking what they did not earn.
With 140 employees under my roof
I don't like union...never have....never will
I prefer workers who can negotiate for themselves....who are motivated by their own success
I don't like nor tolerate dead weight lying around.....here everyone is competitive and that keeps everyone sharp and employees running at near peak levels
But we pay for the best employees....probably 15-20 percent over what our competitors pay in some areas
Finding and keeping top talent is hard to do.....but worth it in the profit arena
