    Companies know this, which is why the idea that Labor and Capital come to the table as equals, is a myth.

    When unions come in, they bring about more of an equilibrium between Capital and Labor which of course, Capital doesn't like.

    This sends Capital into the loving arms of Right to Work for Less States.

    Capital is happy to give quarterly to the coffers of politicians sympathetic to their plight because it is cheaper than paying people a fair wage.

    When all else fails, Capital looks outside the US to exploit Labor. Plenty of hungry bellies outside our borders.
    .. and yet unions still haven't learned. Must not be the brightest people.

    Yes, most people don't look past their bellies and undermine the whole process by readily allowing themselves to be exploited.

    Texas has nation

    “Texas is the biggest job creator in the country in all four job quartiles,” Fisher said Tuesday while at The Dallas Morning News for an editorial meeting. He was referring to the government’s four wage groups — lowest, lower-middle, upper-middle and highest wages.

    Last year, however, the number of Texans making minimum wage or less fell by 21,000. They accounted for 7.5 percent of all hourly workers in the state, down from 8 percent in 2011.The share of those workers also dropped nationwide, accounting for 4.7 percent of all hourly workers in 2012, down from 5.2 percent in 2011.

    “The declines are really not surprising,” said Cheryl Abbot, a BLS regional economist in Dallas. “The last minimum-wage increase took place in 2009. Some of those people, not all, would have received wage increases in the last couple of years.”

    Doesn't change the facts still:

    Texas had the most minimum-wage workers last year, accounting for nearly 13 percent of all such workers across the country, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    I believe workers' rights should be strengthened nationally to prevent other states from allowing the race to the bottom that we've been seeing for decades now as middle class jobs disappear while corporate profits skyrocket.

    Any idea where those corporate profits go and where the wages these people earn go. How about the tax revenue generated on those corporate profits? Do you people ever think of individuals and the benefits of actually having a job? That's ok, send them to TX. Since we don't give away the state our Cost of living is a lot cheaper here

    Yes they HAD. Apparently, given the business friendly atmosphere that has been eviscerated in California, the number of people receiving minimum wage in Texas is declining.

    Of course California can still celebrate its win the "Highest Poverty in the Nation" category. Liberal/Progressives should be proud. Perhaps they can buy a donut or two for those workers the union screwed in Palmdale.

    I was defining terrorize for you, since it appears you were unfamiliar with its proper usage.

    "Card check (also called majority sign-up) is a method for American
    employees to organize into a labor union in which a majority of employees in a bargaining unit sign authorization forms, or "cards," stating they wish to be represented by the union. Since theNational Labor Relations Act(NLRA) became law in 1935, majority sign-up has been an alternative to the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) election process. Majority sign-up and election are both overseen by the National Labor Relations Board."

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Card_check

    Majority of employees voting to unionize doesn't fall under my conventional definition of "terror."

    Again, why do you keep lying. Texas has the highest number of people making FEDERALminimum wage, California has three times the number making California minimum wage but you ignore that. Prior to July it was $8 an hour. Keep showing your ignorance of your own state
