    Unions don't put big corporations out of business. Rewarding bad management with exorbitant bonuses puts big corporations out of business. Sitting in ivory towers not understanding/acknowledging that even CW has issues with HFCS and other chemicals in their kids' snacks is what puts big corporations out of business.

    A statement from the company states it's the union's fault. I wonder what an independent audit of the financials and internal documents would prove.

    Never understimate the cesspool that is the upper eschelons of large US corporations.

    Yep, unions have caused more unemployment and the bankruptcy of more companies and industries than any social group in the history of mankind.

    Unions have completely destroyed this country, and you're right, unions helped turn our country into a third world nation of impoverished and bankrupt citizens.

    "Right to work" states are another idea that I can't wrap my head around. I've heard people say it's an attack on democracy to be a right to work state. What's undemocratic about allowing folks to not join a union? Isn't a RTW state more democratic that a...what's the opposite of a right to work state? What do you call that?
