    Re: Unions threaten Business

    First and foremost once the governmental workers are paid for the services they provide, the money they have earned is no longer taxpayer money. No more so then the money I paid to ford to buy the F150 is my money anymore. It is fords, up until ford uses that money to pay its suppliers (either of labor or parts). Once that money is paid it is the parts supplier or the labor suppliers. As the factory workers at ford have chosen to be unionizied they have choosen to use a portion of THEIR money to fund the union operations (not my money anymore)

    Lastly a boycott is generally the lack of use of money rather then the use of money

    they won't be. and i suspect that this is more intimidation than it is honest threat. threat implies ability; and I frankly don't think that the unions would be able to carry off a boycott of that many businesses for that long, nor that it would necessarily shut down the businesses if they did.

    what they may choose to do is to picket outside of (say) someone's restaraunt, and generally abuse and harass people working and shopping there. that would be a more effective intimidation; sort of a "you don't know if we will choose to destroy you, but it might be you, so sign the paper" kind of move.

    but we shall have to see if that happens; if it does, i think it will backfire on them, just as a general strike would.

    Its the wallets and purses of Poor and Middle Class Taxpayers in the private market that have been the host organism to the ever growing 1000 lb union parasite......

    .......the same Poor and Middle Class Private Market Taxpayers that have sacrificed time and time again........who cant afford to buy their own health insurance, their own retirement, their own roof and food...........

    First just to clear the air YOU are not my friend, YOU give me NOTHING, I work for and earn my pay check. Those who preceded me organized the workers and through an organized effort the workers were able to improve not only thier job conditions but also their living conditions.

    Those YOU elected to office represented YOUR interests at the bargaining table if you felt the contract they negotiated was not in your best interest YOU should have voted them out of office. tHE TEACHERS in Wisconsin offered to renegotaite their wages, YOUR elected representative said NO, His primary goal the goal of the republicans is to weaken the middle class by taking away their collective bargaining rights, NOW the union membership will repond by removing their money from a company that used their union membership's money to fund his campaign,

    They have a great idea in Wisconsin, in PA one of the large donors to the republican govenor "who was convicted in 97 of employing illegals" was giving a job as the State Treasurer will feel the financial bite at his business.

    What governor Walker of Wisconsin started the union membership will finish, We don't need to picket we just need to keep our hard earned cash out of the pockets of those who donate to candidates who want to destroy our rights to organized representation at the bargaining table

    such rights do not exist for government workers. :sorry: it's called public service.

    And? Call it what you will, there is no lawful block on trade union membership for government workers en masse.
    Don't work out, work in.

    sure there is. private sector unions serve as a potential veto over the owners of a facility. public sector unions serve as a potential veto over the people. the first is acceptable in the competition of the market. the second is rebellion and punishable by death. that being said, i'd wager that it's probably also punishable by saying "no, you can't do that".

    It looks like Wisconsin governor needs to do more to strip unions of their power. Maybe he should make Wisconsin a right to work and at will state.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
