    Nice cutting and pasting but that doesn't change the fact that Indiana is going to become a right-to-work state and prohibit labor contracts requiring workers to pay union representation fees.

    If I were a religious liberal I'd start praying the Obama doesn't lose the 2012 presidential election. Thank goodness Utah had the good sense to allow our workers free agency.

    Also, let's look at some RECENT history on unions.

    Not ONLY did Mitt Romney pick the wrong side, again...

    now, we have examples that he can CHANGE his stance on any issue...

    in just, x24 hours.

    How can you support someone...

    'if unions today were so wonderful, they could maintain and grow membership without forcing workers to join them.' - lost in DC | 9:06 a.m. Feb. 1, 2012

    No one is 'forcing' anyone to join a union.

    It's called 'collective barganing.'

    How 'collective' is it, when you have 4 people?

    More unfounded facts.

    And what happens when you DON'T have collective barganing?

    'A separate AP analysis found that at least 4,000 workers lost their jobs at 45 companies bought by Bain...' article

    You get fired.

    You have reduced benifits till you have none.

    And you have no minimum wage.

    People talk of 'sweat shops' in other countries. Where children work x16 hour days.

    America, does not have such problems.

    Because, we have unions. Collective barganing to barter WITH big business.

    Not to let them remind us we should be 'thankful'...

    to be working x16 hour days.

    if unions today were so wonderful, they could maintain and grow membership without forcing workers to join them. Too many workers see their dues being spent (contrary to the law) on political causes they oppose and on union bosses' perks.
