The reason why my job is going to India.
Rambabu: Steve, why are you the only American programmer working at Visa in Foster City?
Steve: Because unions aren't allowed here and business lobbyists got their way in Congress.
Rambabu: Why does a programmer need to make $40 an hour out here, while programmers in India do well on $3 an hour?
Steve: Unions allow workers to get paid more for doing less, which raises taxes and construction costs, while destroying education.

Labor unions suck...all they do is hurt themselves (not getting payed and freezing their asses off striking after collective bargaining fails)...they also hurt the consumer by giving them one less option in purchasing decisions...and hurt the firm by making them looose all their money and eventuallty they run out and cant pay the fucking union people

Outdated social construct perverted from a once noble mission into socioeconomic virus destined to usher in the next great depression.

In the 1920's, unions protected people from slave wages and conditions. Over time, they won the war and the American middle class boomed. Today, having fulfilled their mission, rather than fading away, they continue to fight in a kind of sad, desperate grasp at hanging on to their own existence. They are not unlike the ACLU. Having gained the major victories and won all the good fights, they seek out the most petty, trivial, and even downright morally reprehensible battles in effort to justify their continued existence.
How come Japanese cars perform better, get better mileage, and are safer?

Well, maybe it's because the Japanese don't have cut $2000 of features out of every car to fulfill rich union retiree obligations. Or perhaps it's because they have more money to hire the best engineers because they don't pay uneducated, unskilled workers $25-35/hr to do manual labor.

Wait. Wait. I got. Perhaps it's because they're workers haven't been poisoned by American unions and feel like a craftsman trading equally with their company rather than leeches trying only to suck out as much as possible while exerting the minimal amount of effort... hmmm?

Useless in today’s workforce. The backbone of the Democrat party. The single biggest threat to corporate America. An antiquated union of organized laborers originally formed to protect laborers from unfair labor practices that now has turned into a demanding list of unreasonable promises from companies. Unions have become corrupt and now promote overpay, laziness and corruption for the intent of receiving unmerited benefits. The auto industry’s UAW has ruined the state of Michigan demanding high pay for unskilled work in a struggling industry. You often pay union dues and get NOTHING for your investment (no union representation when under corporate discipline). All unions do is bitch about corporate injustices and retaliate against the hand that feeds them by deliberately sitting on their asses or picketing, while hoping the company will give into their immature demands and pay them an unmerited higher wage. They want more pay for less skill, work and productivity. No wonder corporations don’t want a labor union. I hate them too. The labor union is detremental to corporate America and is the reason why the Rust Belt exists today. They are useless and antiquated.
I hate the unions. They are almost all bad.
