    So they should support politicians that would take away their rights? Gee you think that the Heritage Foundation might have a bias?

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Or maybe not support politicians at all?

    Maybe if the unions used dues to actually support workers instead of the democratic machine people would want to join. Just imagine if the billions of dollars of union dues that have been sent to politicians had been put into pension plans instead? What if the unions could advertise they they have over funded pension plans and raises in projected pension benefits? Maybe that would attract workers? Instead they are underfunded and the money goes into democratic coffers.

    If politicians are actively working against the worker's interest, shouldn't the union be working to protect worker's rights? Shouldn't they have the same rights as tobacco companies?

    Which politicians are these and what exactly are they doing to work against workers rights and interests?

    They are called Republicans, if you actually paid attention to what is happening in the world instead of bragging that you do not watch the news, you would know.

    Hmmmm... Imagine being told after 30 years of working for a company, that the pension you were promised is now going to be cut in half. I thought unions were protecting workers interests?

    Is the union not responsible for this mismanagement of funds?

    Or was it the greed of some corporation or evil republican ?

    The way I see it, the promised pension is a contractual union obligation.

    Hey you are the one that chooses to brag about your ignorance. I do not have the time to instruct you.

    But a lot of those companies went bankrupt after the industry was deregulated in the 1980s.
