A really good friend of mind happens to work for UPS down in Corpus Christi and a while back about maybe 3-4 years ago maybe longer that they were now a union. He said that drivers were on strike for about 2 weeks. He said he doesn't mind that UPS is unioned, great benefits, raise very 6 months to year. As far as states implemeting businesses to become union is something they really have to sit back and think about. Now we know how much of a pain your state governmnet can be, but they are trying to figure out ways to bring more jobs into your cities, with the unemployeement increasing we need to find different ways to bring in more jobs, and if that means becoming a union, then so be; as long as it's going to benefit the entire city.

Hmmm, it is not working out that way, the three worst states to do business in are
48 C
49 NY
50 New Jersey
all heavily unionized. the unions are now primarily in govt employees, there are more govt union members in the Teamsters than business, this is why Vallejo CA is in bankrutpcy, in govt there is not someone to say no to a demand that cannot be met, the 1976 NYC crisis is being felt again in Illinois, Mish has a poll on his site about how to reduce the IL state budget, Barack bought a state penitentary for $200 M plus to help bail IL out, business pays the tax that supports the govt, the only jobs being created are in govt while business is shrinking, that is the problem in Greece where 3 Million govt workers went on strike last week
