Congress Should Outlaw All Unions and Eventually Abolish Them
If Congress really desires to straighten out our country’s fiscal problems, one area that would contribute greatly to reducing our federal spending and decreasing our annual deficits and national debt would be the unions. The unions in America should be rendered illegal and eventually abolished permanently. When labor unions were started over a half century ago, they were sorely needed. This need was because management took advantage of the workers with hiring child labor, working people long hours at low wages, and providing no benefits to employees. When the unions were organized, Congress passed child labor laws. The unions, through collective bargaining, were able to negotiate better wages for workers and also negotiated better working conditions and benefits. Hence, the unions were good at that time period of our history. However, as the years passed, the pendulum swung to the other extreme. Now, unions are taking so much advantage of workers and management that they have now become the bad guys. For example, here is a list of what now characterizes unions:
- Unions have co-opted the Democrat Party and run that party as they so desire because of the multi-millions of dollars they contribute to Democrat campaigns.
- Unions are run by union goons who constantly revert to threats and physical violence to get their way and what they want.
- Unions have become a totalitarian organization that does not want states, cities, and companies to have “right to work” laws. Unions want to unionize all companies so they can have a stranglehold on the free-enterprise system.
- Unions tax their members and use most of the money collected to finance progressive candidates for political offices. When the candidates they back win, they are under the control of the unions.
- Unions want to eliminate the secret ballot for their members so they will know who support them and who do not. They get rid of members who do not approve and support their totalitarian practices.
- Unions are infested with leftists, progressives, socialists, statists, Marxists, Maoists, and communists–particularly in their leadership.
- Unions are in cahoots with the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA), The Mafia, and other such criminal and subversive organizations. When Jimmy Hoffa tried to bully The Mafia, he earned himself a concrete casket, which has never been found. Serves him right.
- The unions, in collaboration with the Democrats, are ruining our cities and states (and now the United States of America) because of their exorbitant wages, retirement benefits, salaries and bonuses for union bosses, etc.
- Companies are forced to raise the prices of their products and services to offset the high labor costs caused by the unions.
- Unions have co-opted the White House by finagling free-access to the Oval Office. The union bosses tell the POTUS what to do. They are so powerful that they demand what they want from the POTUS and get what they demand. The unions now own part of auto companies. Can you believe that?
- New members are forced to join the union and pay dues (taxes) even if they don’t want to. The members have no freedom of choice. If they don’t go along with the union’s program, they are kicked out. So, if they want to work, they must be a union member.
- When they strike, if any scabs cross the picket line, some of them get physically assaulted and pummeled into submission.
- The unions have become a detriment to the safety and security of the United States. The union is a political organization. They couldn’t care less about the welfare of their members. When push comes to shove, the goon leadership sacrifices the members. All they want from their members are their dues and their forced participation in strikes, protests, and demonstrations.
So, my dear friends, this is the present condition and characterization of the unions in America. They have become criminal, subversive, and corrupt organizations. They have screwed the State of Ohio and is screwing the State of Wisconsin. They are also working to screw the State of South Carolina. Eventually, they will screw the entire USA. Hence, they should be abolished and barred from existing in a free country as the USA. They belong in countries like Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea, not the USA.
