Yeah, The Right Is Over-reacting about Unions

It is high time that the department of Justice get involved and stop the union bullying and violence.  They are out of control.

Not all unions. There are some unions that I feel are absolutely needed. The mining, logging and fishing industries are very dangerous jobs. The unions give them an added layer of protection for the people who are working in them.

But generally speaking unions have outlasted their usefulness. The reasons that unions were necessary back in the day no longer exist. We have laws in place of wages, fair pay, number of hours allowed to be worked, paid holidays, and the list goes on.

I also don't think the rank and file union member is bad at all. It is the very powerful people at the top that cause many of the problems.

There is a great deal of violence and illegal behavior involved in some unions. Just ask Jimmy Hoffa Sr.

I personally believe and can back it up that teacher unions stand in the way of much needed reform of public schools. Teachers who are not performing need to be fired. I also for the life of me don't understand why they are resisting performance pay. Many teachers will end up making more money. In return they give up some of the gold plated bennies that they get. It is a win win. The teachers make a higher pay, the kids get a better education, and the tax payers get some needed relief from these benefits packages that are no longer sustainable.

No one should be forced to join a union if they don't want to. They shouldn't be forced to pay union dues directly from their paychecks either. If they want to join, write a check.
