If the Unions Are So Bloody Great, Then…

…how about giving  people the choice whether they want to be a part of one or not?

So I read this article today regarding the drastic drop off of union membership, which is now down to a 70-year low, with 400,000 leaving the union rolls.  The union bosses can’t believe that membership is so low these days and blame the bad economy, weak laws, political and ideological assaults, while James Hoffa of the Teamsters is saying they’re on the uptick, even though membership is plummeting.

I am a big supporter of Right-to-Work laws because they make the unions “sing for their supper”.  In my mind, if someone wants to join a union, let them.  If they don’t, then they shouldn’t be coerced into union membership.

I suspect this drop-off is just the beginning.  With Michigan now a Right-to-Work state, I can only imagine how long it will stay in the top ten unionized states.  It doesn’t surprise me at all, because the unions are failing to make their case in the world of free-choice.

I guess, by weak laws, they mean “not compelling people to be in the union”.

It’s a good thing, in the midst of a lot of bad news.
