Just a Squeaky Wheel
Newman links to a report which claims "49% of employers threaten to close a worksite when workers try to form a union." Well, frankly, I don’t know why they shouldn’t just cut to the chase. If the shop owners don’t, the union will try. They might even succeed.
Another claim: "51% of employers coerce workers into opposing unions with selective bribery or favoritism." Come again? How is favoritism coercion? Bribery? It isn’t coercion until your life and health are threatened. Note: I am not saying that such threats don’t happen, only that it’s a straw-man argument to equate "coercion" with "bribery and favoritism."
Finally, as a really obvious example: The California Teachers’ Association has made sure that California
has the highest-paid public teachers, while simultaneously driving
proficiency scores down, down, down. Gee, who got screwed on that one?
The date rapists are the unions: they talk you up with all kinds of false promises, then when you’ve lost touch with reality, they rob you of your hard-earned money to use for their selfish purposes, including hiring the lawyers to screw you again in court if you try to challenge them.
Congratulations, Mr. Newman. You’re the inaugural member of the Professional Victims’ Club.
