"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

Actually it was a tool to maintain a fair balance between the military/industrial/imperialistic facets of japan.

OWO...i was speaking about Japan. Believe it or not... but not everyone has the blind allegiance that you exhibit.

But if anything stops the insanity between OWO and stillhere then I retract my last fact and will enjoy the lack of pixels regarding their squabble.

Moderation...it appears as if labor unions were a tool but not necessarily required for the reconstruction. it simply was a carryover from the new deal. Much like here, it was viewed and used as a tool to usher in communism. MacArthur was rightly scared and immediately stepped in.

Unions were required in Japan, as a condition of their economic plan, after their surrender.

OWO.. When one removes the fence, no side needs to be chosen.

Different unions do have different ways of determining stewards. Call it a draw.

There is life after your union servitude...perhaps a deep breath and a walk outside would assist you in reclaiming what is left of your and everyone else's sanity.

OWO.....you have been proven wrong...however, you can't prove that still here has never been in a union. you seem to be the only person that seems to care other than your adversary regarding this topic.

ohwiseone" I would like to ask you the same question: Why do you worry so much over 11% of the work force ?

You sure do invest a lot of time on this topic.

If we had Right to Work rules all you Rhetoric would go by the board.

Right to work is the way to go. It gives a worker a choice to join a union or not. A job should not depend on whether or not you are a member of a union. If you are trained and qualified, you should get the job without having to pay forced union dues.

Read very carefully...unions and their members do a fine job of demeaning themselves. It is rather comical to watch the years of union mentality exhibited by you on these forums. I suppose if I supported only 11% of the workforce I would lash out as well...without any regard of any self-dignity.

Munster....you said correctly that you "can't understand". That may be an understatement. Proportionality does not even begin to support your indoctrinated thought process. Please advise if it is a thought process or conditioning that causes you to interact in your peculiar manner.

Corporations pay there Officers from profits. Unions pay their fat cats from Union Dues. They make political donations from Dues. And what about the UAW Golf course in Michigan? It was a good idea until someone found out about it.
