    How do you feel about certain states outlawing labor unions and collective bargaining?

    This is not a hypothetical. Many states to include, Wisconsin, Alabama, Maine, Ohio, and Arizona are pushing legislation to limit the power of labor unions; especially those for government and public service employees. Are we losing all the ground that Americans gained for us over the years through blood, sweat, and sacrifice?

    I don't think that the labor unions and collective bargaining should be outlawed.  I do think that shops should be open though.  I work in a closed shop, and have always been a union man regardless of the shop being opened or closed, but I think that people should have the right to decide.  I've stood in protests and picketed -- my union has a no strike clause -- and I've given up raises to ensure that my union brothers and sisters keep their jobs, so I sure as hell don't think that someone seeking to make a political name for themselves should be able to destroy the unions.

    The state governments can do whatever they like with their own public-funded employees as long as they curtail the possibility of future collective bargaining from the military agencies.

    I think a lot of people forget why unions exist. Unions were created because business owners used to treat their employees like slave labor and would fire people who were injured on the job, leaving them without $$$ or medical. Women with children who lost their husbands due to an employer's failure to protect employees were forced to beg to feed their children. People were fired if they disagreed politically with their bosses. Apparently this is still happening in Wisconsin. Collective bargaining helps people maintain health insurace, reasonable working hours, safe working conditions, injury compensation, etc. I do not want to go back to the days when my grandfather and great uncles worked in coal mines until they dropped dead. I don't think unions are perfect, but they are a lot better than the histoical disposable worker model.
