    600,000 jobs lost in Ohio, thank you unions for all that you do to shrink economic growth and job creation. But what the hell, you got yours, right?

    So.....forced payment of union dues. And then you're for forcing people to buy health insurance, too.

    I thought you guys were "pro-choice". You seem to pick and choose what our "freedoms" should be very carefully, eh?

    They're unfirable. They get out of everything they can and sit on their lazy asses most of the day.

    They are everything that is wrong with America. We used to be exceptional; now we're unionized.

    Then they wonder why companies look outside the U.S. for labor. Yes, it's cheaper, but it's also because those people actually work.

    It's not about protecting the union. It's not about anything other than doing the job. The company might pay me less. That's my choice. The company might pay me MORE if I don't join the union. Yay!!!!!

    You union guys just keep sendin' your dues, Randel. Me? I'll get promoted and get raises on my own merits. It's worked for me so far...quite well.

    I think that's one of the main problems of society today.

    We think we are ENTITLED to things. I hate to break it to you haymarket, but besides anti-discrimination and sexual harassment laws, you have NO RIGHTS as a worker. You don't even have a right to a job. So as an employee, you have no rights.

    Stop thinking the world owes you ****, because they don't.

    Explain how government-paid employees who produce no revenue and are paid solely through tax dollars should be allowed to unionize against taxpayers.
