The benefits of keeping the UAW out of your auto company: Zero layoffs. Zero strikes. Zero health care premiums. Zero pay cuts..


NO! NO! NO! NO! These poor workers are BEING USED by THE MAN™! The need the UNIONS!™ to come in an make their lives BETTER!

Meh. There is a reason unions are dying, and to watch their death spasms….not really tearing up much….

    Yeah, right. Workers are so important to companies, who just wants what is best for them. They act fairly, provide support when needed, and don’t ever let money blind them to the need to be forthright dealing with employees. See it all the time. Like…. Um… Well… Never mind.

    Some pretty blatant “cause and effect” links you provide are DOA. This is one of them: Unions cause layoffs? Unions cause health care premiums? Huh??

    Mike. I think you might have head me say this before, but do you read what you right before you hit post?

    I only ask because you claim that these evil companies refuse to take care of their employees, paying them slave labor wages and making them work 100 hour work weeks in unsafe conditions.

    How do these guaranteed benefits pensions and job pools, which are ever increasing drains on the company’s available capital, exist when the companies are obviously drinking the blood of their worker’s children.

    Oh. Riiiight. It didn’t happen in a vacuum. The Labor Unions need to show their workers there is a reason they keep paying their wonderful dues that are automatically taken from their paychecks whether they wanted to join the union or not, so gotta keep “negotiating”.

    Sorry Mike, but labor unions are a dying breed. They’re dying because they no longer serve the union member but the Union.

    Well, if you go in with the assumption that all companies are bad and want to take full advantage of their workers, and unions provide a net benefit to their workers then of course unions are great.
    You can make any argument when you take your assumptions as gospel – all that assertation and little to no analysis or thinking helps you sleep at night…

    Simply put, unions drive up the cost of doing business. Do with that fact as you will.
