Using your logic captain strawfish. Having health insurance must suck.
The real question this article leads to is:
If only 11.3% of working Americans are in unions why is so much credence given to the GOP argument that unions are ruining America?
Remember we were fed that the unions are one of the causes of our current economic mess. That is what the governors who severely limited collective bargaining told us. The reality is that the country has traded one powerful special interest group (unions) for another (corporate lobbyists). So an alleged democracy that was once manipulated and controlled by the money of unions is now manipulated and controlled by corporate America.
As to your question as to why so much credence is given to the GOP argument that unions are ruining America, its simple; since corporate America also owns the media, the sheeple follow the shepherds and say in unison; "bahhh, the unions are destroying the economy today, bahhhh",
while at the same ExxonMobile just bought another politician. That is why many of the same posters here who rail against the influence of the unions (a special interest that once owned much of the government) can't comprehend the idea that corporate interests are now doing the EXACT same thing.
