Workers here are FORCED into unwanted unionization by the Dems, who love slavery. That is why Dems are known as the puppets of slave owners!

Yea right..labor unions...I watched (from afar) while this valley tanked because of labor union dysfunction. When the lazy man would hide behind his union while the honest hard worker was forced to become like his "union brother or sister". Funny how powerful the UMWA thought they were and they caused their own demise..They have dismantled themselves...

Since the days before the Civil War, democrats have always been the party favoring slavery, and they still do...only now some of the slaves are white and the master is the government!!! Dems love slavery and forcing their will upon others.

If a conservative were to quote Abraham Lincoln as a reason for the way something should be today, Liberals would pounce saying we need to join the 21st century.

Throughout much of the twentieth century, business leaders and public officials assumed that the great danger to the American polity would come from the far left—from communist revolutionaries or New Left anarchists. But it never really did, and doesn’t today. The real threat to America’s large republic is from the far right. The middle-American radicals represent the dark intolerant side of American politics. They reject the attempt, beginning in the Progressive Era, to smooth the rough edges of a capitalism that, left to its own devices, leads to monopoly, inequality, and poverty. And they promote the polarization of the parties, making a functioning government impossible and throwing into question the Constitution they claim to revere. - John B. Judis

Thoughtful,That's why one fourth of American jobs pay poverty wages, and three fourths of Americans live paycheck to paycheck? 76% of Americans have no retirement savings. The fact remains that without unions the employer makes all of the rules, can change them at anytime. They may give you an employee handbook, but who writes it? Unions allow workers to ensure that things important to them such as wages, benefits, and working conditions are agreed upon with the employer in a legal binding contract.

Class warfare comments simply does not solve or address this issue. Any individual can elevate their worth to a current position or job, seek out alternate training for another position with more responsibility, income level, or opportunity, or look for small business needs within their area. I have mentored thousands of individuals. this process helps that individual seek out their inherent strengths and talents, weaknesses, and develop an action plan for self growth, timeline to meet, and a vision for their ultimate goals and expectations. Many of these individuals have had families, had to continue to work full time, and were able to succeed and reach a path for meeting their economic and aspirational goals. Easy by no means, challenging, you bet, sacrifice, absolutely. Worth it, only each individual can make that decision.

If workers are so bad and undeserving of a decent wage. Let the CEO's make their own products or provide their own service. Let them also buy all of their own products and services. The employer class need us more than we need them. "Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed." Abraham Lincoln Dec. 3 1861

It is very sad to see folks brainwashed by liberal socialist into believing that paying dues to criminal unions is good. They take the money to empower agendas that create the worst environment for the workers. Then the jealously that drives the hatred of the hardworking risk takers or lucky people. If CEOs are so bad then start your own company and support your union employees until they drive you out of business or create a socialist company where all employees, regardless of skill, education, risk tolerance or talent all make the same salary?

Better yet, have the government set the salaries and allowable product prices for everyone like Soviet Russia or Venezuela...they are doing so well? Galt/Taggart 2016.

I can almost understand a guy trying to think and vote like his daddy and grand-daddy would.....they see it as sort of a family tradition or loyalty passed on through generations. What I cant understand is how long it takes todays working stiffs to figure out that daddy and grand-daddy got a RETURN on their investment.....but they never will!!!....HELLO young worker!!......your loyalty is a one way street and you are the only car on the road!!!!

Mr. Ben, there are many opportunities for individuals to improve their expertise, develop their talents and skills, seek out job advancements, and elevate their level of responsibility, income, and promotional growth. It is beyond any political affiliation or membership.Millions of Democrats and Republicans have enhanced their careers.

Today's GOP is doing all it can to dismantle unions. Republicans hate the working man. Only 2 types of people vote GOP: Millionaires and suckers.
