    A) It's not different. Employees vote, majority rules, it's just public.

    B) The "union friendly" company should be happy to let the vote go through unless, as logic would dictate, they're not particularly union friendly.

    Public itself makes it different. Card check and the current (standard) process is why the company does not want it and the union is insisting on it. Sorry that you don't see that.

    B) The "union friendly" company should be happy to let the vote go through unless, as logic would dictate, they're not particularly union friendly.
    No one said they were.

    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.

While they have a central government for national interests that affect everyone, they don't interfere otherwise. And the Swiss people are expected to have guns in every home, and to take recurrent training to stay skilled in the use of same. Even Grannys are sharp shooters, and know how to defend themselves! Would you invade such a country? Hitler opted not to!

    Oops, Trick or treaters are here! Beggars's Night has begun...back later.
    Beggars Night? LOL. That sounds like fun. Really. I don't think they could pull that off here in sunny SoCal.

    I have to tell you, I had great employees at my previous company. Frankly, had they decided to let he union control their future, it would have saddened me. Not because of any financial impact. I was blessed beyond my wildest dreams. What would have saddened me was going that route would have meant the company was not providing the opportunities and rewards I have always felt was part of the reason we were in business.

    Advocating that the balance of power between corporate interests and workers' interests be shifted closer to the middle is in everyone's interests.

    Interesting and yet expected that you run when challenged and are proven wrong. Only in the liberal world does more spending, more handouts, and bigger govt. equal better state performance. You ignored that California has the highest number of people making minimum wage, has the greatest number in poverty, provides massive handouts to its citizens, and has among the highest taxes in the nation. Wonder why that doesn't concern you and why that is never mentioned when you attack TX?

    You see, partisan hacks like you never admit when they are wrong, thus just ignore the responses and in a few days will come back making the same lies over and over again. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you?

    Lol... what? That's not even remotely true.
