How do you expect to win back the middle when your attitude is that anyone who makes a wage as opposed to entrepeneurship, is somehow a dependent drain on the American culture? When are you going to divorce yourself of this vitriol? People who attack the union have no idea what the union does FOR the American well being and safety, how they now work in concert with management for the improvement and economic streamlining of the system. They prefer to swin in the stereotyping because the Republicans decided to make them one of the scapegoats of their platform.
Unions have long since gone beyond the purpose they were formed to serve and have now become a drain on the employer and the enemy of the bottom line. Hide behind that "if you are against the union you are against the working man"schtick while you can. People aren't fooled by it anymore.
Look around you; the end is nigh.When they replace your job with machines will you support them in the event they look kindly on you once they become self aware?
