    What’s an example of atypical thuggery? Of any stripe!

    Oh please! Just where ARE all these “sweat shops”?? You know they’re illegal here in the states. Minimum wage is $7.5 an hour, that is NOT a sweat shop. Don’t like it? Get another job!
    That’s the thing about you guys, you really do live in a different world where evil is behind every rock, and you want somebody else to force everybody to do things YOUR way.
    If you’re mistreated at work, you either go get another job, or you take them to court.
    Can’t get another job? Thank your boy in the white house for destroying the economy (and soon to be the whole country). Not qualified for a job? Thank the radical liberals running the “government school” system, they OWN and operate them, conservatives and the GOP have almost ZERO to do with the school system except provide TONS of money to them. Didn’t learn while you were there? That’s YOUR fault, can’t regulate stupidity or intelligence.
    Sweatshops…. indeed! Look! Over there!! An evil CEO behind that rock!!! Haha, made ya look!
    Good grief.
    (and if unions were all so great, why is there SO much corruption associated with them?? Why are the “right to work states” (my God, we even need a “right to work”? That very term makes me sick!) doing so well? They should be failing without everybody being in the unions! Why are the most unionized states/cities all failing? And why are the unions such a small part of America? if they were so great, then EVERYBODY would be in a union.
    Unions are a useless, old, dead, dinosaur hanging around the countries neck, dragging it down like an anchor in a lake.
    They served a purpose decades, generations ago. But today, they do nothing but drive business away and destroy corporations.
    One more question, if unions were so great, why did general motors try to get rid of the unions when obama the lawless give general motors TO the unions? You’d think, that the unions would want to keep their OWN unions! (the answer is because they know how destructive they really are, that’s why general motors had to be bailed out by the taxpayers in the FIRST place!)

    The purple shirts, you know, a lot like Hitler’s brown shirts. The seiu, where they attacked those people in the town hall meeting, trying to prevent them from speaking bad about obamacare. You know, it was on the news, that time when one of the seiu thugs bit off that guys finger.
    There’s another where they actually beat up a guy in a WHEELCHAIR!

    Uhhmmm, this is a comic strip. Can you keep your political rants to yourself, or at least take them to the editorial cartoons.

    I was anti-union. I had 7 consecutive years perfect attendance and was one of only two who made 100% production. Company hierarchy started harassing me but left others alone. I phoned a lawyer and was told that without a union one couldn’t do much against bad management. For that reason alone, I would want to be in a union, just so management would follow the rules. As for thuggery, I don’t know who started it; Henry Ford had his goons.

    In the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, if a violinist in the big cities would not join the union, a union thug would find them and break their left had with a club. Fact. My wife played professionally and knew a man who was ‘thugged’ by the musician’s union.

    Unions did a lot of good and still do…..but they have also gone overboard.
    When I was in a Union job the company was willing to pay the workers more but the company wanted to eliminate the time and a half on Sundays that a small crew got.
    Sunday was their normal workday. They got Monday and Tuesday off. It really didn’t make a lot of sense for someone to get paid more for working on Sunday.
    The Union considered it non negotiable. Even though it would have raised the wages for all workers.
    We went on Strike and lost. I was in my 20’s at the time and living was cheap but for those with families and mortgages they lost a lot. All for about 6 hours of “time and a half” for a handful of guys.

    Like that’s gonna stop the trolls. Just try to ignore them. Or flag ’em like I do.
