    Unions fight to not reduce costs even if they lose jobs

    Even if true, it doesn't matter. It's through negotiation. And both sides put their name on the paper. Both sides hold blame. And let's not for get, the artilce you supplied pointed to excess in mangement.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Look at the times. At that time people were making less than $10 an hour. They were making 3 times that. This an example of abuse of power to get pay that is extreme

    oh, yes, good thinking

    and it's almost always the case that management brings to the negotiation table demands for pricier and plusher pensions for the membership

    the unions usually have to be dragged kicking and screaming

    Agreeing to something that will make you fold is not more noble or intelligent than asking for such things.
    well, they could always let the bosses shut down the shop

    again, very clever

    way to think things thru
