"Yes I read the 9th [amendment]. It doesn't say **** about abortion." -Jamesrage
The courts are ****ing retarded. They're just trying to be practical in order to make things happen despite how people clearly haven't invested the time needed to think about what they want to happen.
There is something very wrong going on with this country and freedom of speech. People are increasingly claiming it's their right to control other people just because they can make a lot of noise, and other people can't.
This is VITAL to any form of parliamentary procedure. Without respect for "no votes", entire organizations can be subverted by the hands of the few.
In contrast, an abstention means you're simply not making a decision, but you're still participating to satisfy a quorum.
Instead, the government wants the union to be as corrupt as possible so it can charge as much as it wants in contracts for wages.
That way, the government can justify levying higher taxes, and continue to crowd out private enterprise.

Besides, there's the argument that they can join a temp agency and find their own jobs.
The real issue has to do with the overall culture of society this encourages. Not only will it lead economically to higher wage demands and taxes, but it will lead to information entropy in general which is worse than any economic tension imaginable. By reducing the necessity of organizational cohesion required to take action, organizations can create layers of secrecy where only insiders know what's really going on.
It's not just abusing worker rights, but it's destroying real citizen equity in general. The situation of insider information creates a world of second class citizens who can't defend themselves because they don't have social networks or subjective familiarity with legal terms of art.
Steps to Creating a Union WorkplaceSTEP 4: Make Your Union “Official”
Once you’re able to show strong majority support for creating a union, usually through the signing of “authorization” cards or a petition, the next step is to make your union official. There are different ways to do this depending on your type of workplace. One common way is to request the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which is a neutral government agency, to hold a secret ballot election. Depending on the state, public employees may have their own state agency conduct an election. Another way to gain official union recognition is to have your employer voluntarily recognize your union. OPEIU organizing staff can help you decide which method might be best for your situation.
At this point, you may be asking, “What will my employer say to workers forming a union?” The typical employer will say you don’t need a union because he/she will not want to give up any control or power. You and your co-workers need to be prepared for what to expect when your employer learns about your steps to form a union.
See, you don't even know what the **** you're talking about.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
