OK, but to demonstrate that living standards hadn't declined that's what you referenced. If not for that purpose, why mention new autos and college? Surely you meant something...I didn't call them "positives" and you should evaluate your own statement here.
You tell me. Or, better, instead of asking me vague questions, make your point.Ok, then, where do these policies come from then?
The workplace votes for a union. If there is a union in that workplace, not joining is just a decision to enjoy the negotiated pay and benefits, but freeload off others who pay their dues. And if workers don't like working in a union shop, find another job with better pay and benefits. Pretty straightforward. And not un-American for employees who benefit from a union to pay for those benefits.Unions are not Un-American. Forcing someone to join one so that they are "allowed" to get a job is un-American.
