This is a great article. I fully support getting a fair wage, and good working conditions.
The working conditions should be set by the government (it falls under that protecting life thing), and the fair wage should be negotiated by the person getting the job.
But many people have decided that Unions are the way to go, and in this case while fighting for jobs the Union actually lost the jobs that they were fighting for. Which I feel for the people who did not get hired, but really it is the Union leaders fault. They got a big head, and did not negotiate, so they screwed their selves over real good. When your union is costing you your job, do you stay in the Union?
