Draginol never tires of orienting unions to entitlements and therefore all of whom are lazy, spoiled bastards. God forbid that anyone should want better healthcare and wages.

if that was all it was Steven, then Unions would not have sucked their hosts dry like leaches.  Once they forgot they had a symbiotic and not a parasitic relationship with the companies, they lost all sight of benefits for the workers and became just another special interests that do not give a damn about the worker, only their own power.

Exactly, when a Union becomes parisitic in the relationship it actually begins to defeat the very purpose they were created for by putting the company (in this case auto company) at risk of longevity they are actually hurting the very worker they are trying to protect.

There is simply no rational argument—you’re either for or against unions. The sucking action you heard is coming from both sides. Management wanted and got enormous productivity while willing to pay for it. The symbiosis came to an end when imbalanced trade came to our shores, and Reagan worked a deal with southern governors guaranteeing that no unions would make inroads in auto factories built by foreign companies. I do agree, however, that unions long delayed in making adjustments to the realities. It showed me that they have lost sight of priorities and why I no longer believe in unions. Instead liberals should be pushing for a viable bill of rights for labor.

Too simplistic. The essence of bargaining rights is to compromise. It worked well for sixty years in auto manufacturing until workers were being threatened by Japanese autos, yet management did nothing to face the threat. UAW, too, was lackadaisical by not insisting that manufacturers go back to the old 4 cylinder drawing boards and make a better engine for the times—in this case the 70s oil crisis.

No, you are not either or on unions.  and yes, Stupid management is as guilty.  But when management said uncle, the unions never stopped.  Now the unions are running the government shops.  And who is winning?

The only company that refused to be sucked into the ponzi scheme.  In a few years, it will be the only American Car company left.  So what are you going to do about the unions then?  With no companies to work for, what good is a union?

 

The leech gorges itself until the host dies.  And the Union's hosts are dying.

excellent video.

I was born in Detroit but lived in the suburbs from age 3 or so.  I have been back many times, and every time I do it just validates my reasons for never returning to Michigan.  Not only because of what is in this video, but also because of the horrible roads in the state and the highly evident lack of concern by state government officials. Looks to me like all they care about is the money they are making, and to hell with the rest of the state or its people.
