Protecting us from the Union menace

Posted By on Wed, Oct 24, 2007 at 10:06 AM

Unions a menace, business leader says,” proclaims the headline in the Business section of today’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Seems the chief executive officer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce sees unions as a threat to the nation’s economy.

And that’s news? When hasn’t the Chamber of Commerce hated the very notion of working men and women organizing for the common good?  The list of changes  that unions have brought  to the workplace - and which have been bitterly fought by such stalwart folks as the Chamber - is too long to list here.

Good grief.

Maybe we can see an article detailing the benefits of belonging to a union next. In the Democrat-Gazette? Sorry - bad joke.
