    The amount of hate directed at the American labor movement is staggering to observe here. It is as if all of you were completely uneducated about the history of labor in this nation.

    The history of labor movements in this country has little to do with the corruption seen from them today.

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

    Not only that, their membership continues to decline


    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is out with its annual report on union membership. It’s down, once again: 11.9% of employees in 2010 were union members, down from 12.3% in 2009. There were 14.7 million union members, significantly down from 1983, the first year for which comparable data is available, when there were 17.7 million. Note that the population of the United States in 1983 was 234 million as compared to 308 million in 2010.

    And you can provide ample evidence of this alleged "corruption" of the American labor movement?

    There is a reason union membership continues to drop and there is a reason that union goods are more expensive than goods from non union shops and nations that have non union businesses. Labor unions have priced the manufacturing business right out of the global economy and markets. those that complain about lost business ignore their own behavior in shopping price when making purchases especially big purchases i.e. autos.

    You mean the Ford that didn't get taken over by the Govt? didn't Ford renegotiate with the unions to get more favorable contracts?

    The unions have been a partner with Ford for many decades now. They negotiate contracts to the mutual benefit of both.
