So you don't think that what is going on in the Republican statehouses is not a coordnated effort to chip away at the ability of people who acutally work for a living (not collecting dividends) to have any control over working situations i.e. collectively bargain. And don't give me this narcissitic "I am the best their is in my profession and I should be able to bargain my own wages as I see fit" shit.Just because something has a certain historical origin doesn't mean times haven't changed. I am very grateful for some of the benefits every worker (union or not) enjoys because of what unions did in the past. That doesn't mean they are still beneficial/useful/needed today.
In the real world numbers count. If working people can't organize which is power, all you going to see is the continuing erosion of the middle class.
