What happened to the "Union Influence in Politics" topic?

Even though I initiated it as the debut topic in the Times forums, I'm happy to realize it has been deleted. It died an ugly death long ago, and should have been executed long before it was. I'm curious though... Why? I am unaware of the travesty that occurred that was sufficiently heinous to warrant it's deletion... As compared to the tripe on ALL the other threads that is evident on a daily basis.

Being forced to financially support political activities you do not agree with just to keep your job is also wrong.

One of the many reasons unions were formed.

Two of the indicted educators accused in the Atlanta Public School cheating scandal have turned themselves in to the Fulton County Jail early Tuesday morning. The 35 educators, including former superintendent Beverly Hall, must surrender on Tuesday. They all face charges of racketeering, theft by taking, influencing witnesses and making false statements. A grand jury hearing the APS case suggested a $7.5 million bond for Hall. If convicted, she faces up to 45 years in prison.

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment;

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public.

The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.

Stimulate improved job safety of our workers, through assistance to the States, employees and employers;

Continue and further perfect its programs of assistance to the millions of workers with special employment problems, such as older workers, handicapped workers, members of minority groups, and migratory workers;

Strengthen and improve the Federal-State Employment Service and improve the effectiveness of the unemployment insurance system;

Protect by law, the assets of employee welfare and benefit plans so that workers who are the beneficiaries can be assured of their rightful benefits;

Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of Sex;

Federally-assisted construction, and maintain and continue the vigorous administration of the Federal prevailing minimum wage law for public supply contracts;

Lets end the republican war on teachers !You are ignorant of unions so you refuse to believe that anyone WANTS to be a member ! Let me assure you that the VAST MAJORITY of union members want to be there and dont mind paying their share for the benefits they recieve !You believe all the garbage propaganda the right-wing goober fests tell you and since you have NO EXPERIANCE you just cant axccept the facts !And just HOW IS MAKING A CHOICE , NOT MAKING A CHOICE ???

Wow , what a line of crap !! So I suppose this is your new "go to" website ! Well thats their opinion as idiotic as it is !Unions are still the line in the sand for the safety of workers ! And unions assure workers rights and keep businesses from taking advantage of workers ! I think the history of unions tells the true story ! Things like the 40 hr work week , child labor laws , paid vacations , sick days , and the list goes on and on ! You may not be union but you can thank unions for what benefits you get !When poor wrongriki cant find a VALID arguement this is the garbage you have to deal with !Deflect ,deny , mis-lead and lie , thats exactly what wrongriki is doing now ! Please back up your claim (lie) that I'm receiving benefits from the union !Please let us all in on it !

In the time it took you to write that a union shop would have had 2 coffee breaks and filed one grievance.

Yes, right to work for less !End the republican war on workers ! The whole of your arguement is that people dont have a choice RIGHT ?Well seems to me that if a person either chooses to work at A: a union shop or B: a non-union shop they are making a conscience choice ! SO EXACTLY HOW IS MAKING A CHOICE NOT A CHOICE !!

So go flap your ignorant gums someplace else !
