    The unions and their leaders are feeling the wrath of Michigans poor economy over the last couple of decades, from the loss of the auto industries clout, to the auto manucfacturers moving to Mexico.
    The shining city of Detroit is an example of poor and corrupt government in that state, it now has become the poster child of bad government, hoping on handouts from US taxpayers, there is no more Bacon to bring home, sad, very sad.
    Unions deservedly so, have fueled their own demise.

    I have trouble seeing any justification for "closed" shops. How can anyone justify requiring joining a union to work at a particular location? In what way is that "freedom"?

    The Associated Press likes to put a crisis into everything by the words they use. This helps sell newspapers and in a state that has Detroit, Unions have been blighted with rust and corrosion over the years and they don't want to lose their power base.

    This helps sells newspapers and rial up the people who want to keep President Obama for 4 years more.

    The Chicago group is probably involved with the tactics as the 3 million votes they won the election by can be accounted for in the unions and not just some Republicans not going to vote. The Supreme Court helped Unions get more power through their ability to campaign directly and not just by supporting a candidate.

    In the 1870s and into the 1900s Unions may have been beneficial for some, this election for both parties was a new experience and will allow more monies and energy to flow toward big business and unions making their bid for their desires.

    The unions are "plotting" their strategy. Interesting choice - plotting.

    Why not considering?
    looking into?
    thinking about?
