I was talking to my Dad awhile back about unions. He mentioned that my Mom's Dad ran a textile mill in Alabama back in the 30's and that he carried a pistol in his pocket and had a 50 cal machine gun on top of the bldg to keep roaming union thugs at bay. They didn't play nice when they came to town.

I agree that unions were needed at one time, but they have outlived their usefulness. Through intimitadation and strikes, they have brought mfg to it's knees and driven it overseas. Jobs that should be paying much less are now paying 2-3 times what they should and driven the cost of products through the roof and/or driven it overseas.
