    “I used to be a governor” Sounds like Illinois. Governors convicted: Otto Kerner Jr., Daniel J. Walker, George Homer Ryan, Sr. and Rod Blagojevich.

    If unions went away today, we’d be back to 60-hour weeks, no weekends, child labor, and the rest, by next month. Meanwhile, the GOP would be cheering that it had brought some jobs home, albeit without much in the way of wages… but they’re the party of your boss and have been for a long time.

    Two-time union buster, brought down by a nerd with a pocket protector who wasn’t even trying.

    …I don’t know what’s more disturbing, the fact that anyone here believes in the promises of politicians – ANY politicians – or that people are willing to suck up entirely to the unions OR the bosses. Every last one of them is honest as a three-dollar bill, and as dependable.

    Since I don’t read the rightwing commenters, I’m going to assume they despise every benefit that has accrued to working people from the unions.

    Take the job, Phil! If you’re going to rot in prison, you might as well rule it, too.

    Sad to think about all the people that were killed trying to prevent Unionization in the early days. Now all it takes is a little GOP propaganda to turn so many against them.

    Unions have training programs that you can’t get anywhere else. Look at the elevator union, or the refrigeration union. Small casual labor unions have the in lieu of vacation/holiday pay and insurance for the workers, that the small contractor can’t take care of.

    Yes, there are many that are corrupt, but that is everywhere. I will trust a union before I trust the company.

    Brown and Root, Kerr McGee, etc are just companies that pay unskilled workers 1/3 scale and take 2x the man hours to finish a job – with 10x the accidents.
