    Don't under estimate the awesome power of a collective Cheeto strike.

    Anyone with a brain and skills knows that all unions suck ass and are full of talentless slackers that rely on the union to protect them when arbitration time comes....

    And I mean ALL UNIONS SUCK ASS.. The UAW sucks ass and has bankrupted GM, the teachers' union sucks and had bankrupted our schools... etc.. etc.... Union protect the weak and the stupid... If you have skills and a good work ethic, you don't need the protections of a union...

    Not fully true, near enough but not fully true. Unions at one time served a very needed roll, to help level the playing field for workers when the employers were abusing their power over those with little choice. But those days have come and passed. My dad was union with the RR for 30 years. At the end of his time with them, I was taking home more in my check then he was. Now that he is retired... well lets say I am jealous of what he gets now.

    The problem with unions now is that they are still operating like they were 50 years ago. When the global market was less then what it is now and cheap foreign labor wasn't a concern. They still operate as if they can still bully the corporations into their demands without fear of losing. Problem now is those corporations can just close up shop and head over seas for cheap labor free from the unions. Unions need to play catch up and learn to try and save the jobs by keeping them here, and be willing to do what it takes, and be less concerned about what they can get from the corporations.
