Attitudes

Read the attached article. I am by no means anti union, and I am fully aware of the truly important role Unions have had in the development of industry in our country. However, as I read this article, I am struck by the negative attitude directed towards such an important element in our country...the companies that create jobs. There is no question that Union involvement in anything will increase costs. And I think there is little doubt about the fact that Union leaders know that by taking the fairness away from the Union election process through the grossly misrepresented and ridiculously named Employee Free Choice Act, they make it increasingly easy to line their own pockets on the backs of the hard working people of this country.
It just seems to me that these people could provide a valuable service if they tried to do what they originally set out to do...protect people who ware being endangered or exploited. Wouldn't that be positive?
Your thoughts?
