    Seems to me if its a good union then most members will continue to pay dues. I thought Dems were for choice?

    But if the employers hire two part time employees instead of a full time employee, then the government can brag that they’ve increased the number of jobs 100%!
    .
    YEAH FOR FISCAL JUGGLING!!!!

    Just make sure the new employees don’t work enough hours to qualify for health insurance.

    Air Force One has an elevator that can help a man in a wheelchair get aboard. However, if that plane flies overseas, the man in the wheelchair is subject to disability challenges we’ve abolished in our country. The older I get, the more people I know who benefit from handicap ramps, parking spaces, and laws that prevent businesses from discriminating against the disabled. I made my Union comment under Lisa Benson’s cartoon but this one gives me another chance to express my anger at how Republicans voted against the UN Treaty that would have given the rights our country has given our disabled to people everywhere. And their reason for doing so was ignorant to a point of criminality.
    Respectfully,
    & Happy Holidayze

    Something will fill the vaccuum that unions leave behind and it may not be pretty.

    If the likes of the Koch brothers get their way, it’ll be the Second Age of the Robber Barons- where the rich have all the power, just like God intended. (Never mind what his son said; that’s just commie propaganda.)

    “Something will fill the vaccuum that unions leave behind and it may not be pretty.”

    A bit dramatic considering that they only comprise 7% of the private sector workforce.

    C:, at 66 with the usual infirmities of my age, I can appreciate what you say about handicap facilities. I read the argument against the U.N. measure and I must say it seems illogical to me. The prevailing fear amongst the conservatives is at some point “someone” will use a U.N. mandated treaty to impose some onerous limitation on our freedom’s. Reality as it is, this treaty could be helpful to others that don’t have the protection of the ADA and if they subscribe to the treaties of the U.N. . I guess we can attribute their attitude for one of the reasons they lost the recent election.
    The unfortunate reality today is the people that need it the worst are likely not resident of a country that adheres to the mandates of the U.N. or they are so impoverished they can’t enact them. Therein lies my objection to the U.N. in general; I think it is a totally ineffective body for the results it achieves. Better I don’t go down that road here…
