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.

scrappile...labor in and of itself is very noble and admirable. in that i think you will agree. the labor i was referring to was not individual labor but the organized variety that has morphed into another entity that differs in many ways from the noble ideas at the root of it's creation. my point was and is that organized labor in this day and time is a Special Interest Group. that was the crux of my statement.

LTS- Labor is the noble cause, for even if your income is from your money making money for you, somewhere in that equation, someone is laboring away to let you achieve that. Even if it is the person making that ham biscuit you enjoy, or the farmer making that sugar available, or the grower of the tea you sweetin with the sugar, as you wash down that ham biscuit...think about what a chore it would be, if you had to now your own fairway....OK Rikki, you can eat more paste now....

BobBarker...newsflash: Labor is a special interest. you have been duped into thinking it is actually still a noble cause.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.

Definition: Verbal bullying occurs when someone uses language to gain power over his or her peers. The verbal bully makes use of relentless insults and teasing to bully his or her peers. For instance, a verbal bully may make fun of a peer's lack of physical capabilities, may tease a peer for being a "dumbie" or "nerd", and/or may call a peer names based on appearance. Verbal bullies are one of the more difficult types of bullies to identify since their attacks tend to only occur when adults are not present. Even though verbal bullying creates no physical damage, this type of abuse can have lasting psychological impacts on victims.

I borrowed it from R1KRA8. The post right before mine. Then I added my personal experience to it.

That is me speaking from my experience in union negotiations.

The UAW’s loss shows that the 1930s adversarial union model has little to offer today’s workers.

That is SOOO true. Unions are out of touch with todays workers and take their money for what?? An arbitrator to go in a meeting with them and hear management recite the contract and their interpretation of it ??? Management will only agree to what ever benefits themselves so who is being scammed?? The workers !! By paying their $50/month useless due for a gaggle of worthless union stewart....

FYI, The expiration date of all labor contracts are agreed upon by MUTUAL CONSENSUS.

Negotiations always occur BEFORE the expiration of any current contract.

Any coincidence you infer to bolster your point is merely... COINCIDENCE.

R1KRA8: Irrespective of what Jason Menard? thinks, our kids ARE barganing chips, regardless of who places them there.

We consider alternatives in their best interest, everyday, in every decision we make.
