The problem with government

The truth is that government unions are still needed today. The sad truth is that our
system of governance rewards incompetence and that despite fantasies from some I have witnessed extensive bullying by management.

The basic problem with unions is that they need to stick with work place issues and get out of politics. The unions have so closely identified with following the lead of the Democratic party that they have become irrelevant.

If unions wish to become relevant they need to focus on real issues like bullying workers. This is not about professional criticism of actual work performance. A work place bully mentally harasses and abuses workers with physical and psychological abuse.
Many of us can convey stories of abuses that last years. It takes a toll on our daily lives even outside of work.

Beak, this is how they get you to quit. Just as you were pushed out of the family business they're trying to get you to quit.

Careful, if you quit in this economic environment you may not be able to continue being a fancy man.

Beak, excellent article on Qadaffi and Fanon, who I know is a favorite topic of yours.

If what you said were true, then EVERY private enterprise would need a union. The truth is, they don't and nobody does.

Man up beakerkin. Stop being such a whiner. You don't like being bullied? Then take care of the bully yourself. Everyone else does.

Gee Ducky, I thought that maybe you had been arrested for vagrancy and criminal stupidity. Hadn't seen one of your stolen avatars in a while.
