    Wrong. The union (in all cases except construction and pigs) protects employees from predatory employers and unsafe working conditions. And back in the day unions did great things for cops and construction worker...

    There are issues with many unions. But right to work isn't about working. Its about killing unions.
    So adding a union on top of your boss helps? And while it gets YOU more money, its decreases competition and raises costs to the consumer. Consumers like me who dont appreciate it.

    And its lots more than simply about a bill to "kill unions", its simply a dated model of failure.

    Re: Income Inequality

    Income inequality is a natural result of capitalism. It means its working. Having said that there is an issue with the fact that income inequality is growing. Thats not a good thing. Gains as a result of the recent economic "recovery" are all going to the upper wealth bands. Again problem. I suspect that may be because the gains are a result of the fed printing money which is going into financial assets and real estate - both are experiencing bubbles. Problem.

    The key, as always, is jobs. Good paying jobs. Incentivizing job creators to move jobs offshore needs to be addressed. Bring a lot of those jobs back by removing the incentives for companies to move jobs offshore. Lower the corporate tax rate and STFU with all the anti-business class warfare rhetoric coming from our own government.

    Well then go away (and you would be horribly mistaken.)

    Would a system that's "fair" have been founded by men that were so hypocritical as to preach freedom but deny to all but a select few?

    Would the police of this system target minority's at alarmingly high rates compared to everyone else?

    Would it allow children to be taken in by foster parents only to have them be starved and Beaten so the foster parents could make a buck? (A direct result of defending social services)

    would a majority of its population feel misrepresented?

    Would it bomb ppl for no reason and start wars of aggression around the world?

    I think not.

    Its this kind of mentality that destroys america. Why should you not be able to make a decent living working their? What about the mentally and physically handicapped and seniors that get stuck in such jobs? Or just dumb ppl? Why do they deserve to not eat?

    Again GO AWAY LIAR

    You have posted a string of falsehoods and I don't care to engage with such irrationality.
