wow a thread just for me... at one time i thought miles had gone down the socialistic crapper. I was wrong, you people are in such a minority in miles and most of you do not even live there. i will say this, i have lived in las vegas, worked union jobs there, i know the upside of the unions and the down sides of unions. this knowledge has not come to me through reading or listening to political pundants, it has come to me through experience. as a business owner now, i am full aware how harmful unions can be to all business. why dont unions opt for profit sharing rather than pensions? not all industry have profitable quarters. why dont unions start their own companies and stop hijacking the labor and investment of private citizens? why can teachers not get fired when they vote autistic children out of their classes? business responsibility to society is not to create jobs it is there to create profit period. i dont do what i do for fun, i dont need the practice, i want the money. i dont need an employee telling me how much i have to pay them. if they dont like what i pay then they can go and find a different job.
