    Congratulations, Mr. Emmanuel. Prove these nay-sayers wrong!!!

    Union-bashers have obviously never belonged to a union, been related to some one who has belonged to a union, been married to a union member, etc. Therefore, if you do not have any experience with any unions other than what the media reported over Hoffa, or are management listening to the company propaganda, please be quiet. There are a *lot* of different unions, please don't judge by either a) Hoffa, or b) biases journalism by biased media outlets, whose owners would like to ban collective bargaining! They've an agenda all of their own.

    Union bashing never was about race. And all races belong to unions.

      If the unions came to the table to negotiate and agreed to the % that the Scott wanted, the money deal was done. Why take away collective bargaining, because the rich want tobe able to have slave labor and people at their mercy. No its not about a race war, its a wealthy VS. Middle class war.

    “Those who would destroy or further limit the rights of organized labor – those who would cripple collective bargaining or prevent organization of the unorganized – do a disservice to the cause of democracy.” -John F. Kennedy (1960)

      Did you not read all the blogs? It is usually the hate spewing coming from the right, with no solutions but to have the average Joe pay the way. If you are an average working Joe you are voting against the people you are.
