An opinion not shared by the overwhelming majority of people in the workforce.
Oh no!!! Not that!
You can call me anything....But ya' better not call me a goof!, Them's fightin' words! LOL!
And then they hired him to pick a peck of pickled peppers...Oh no...Wait, That was Peter Pepper!
How do you figure that?
Men willing to risk being stomped by union thugs in order to get the work done in an effort to feed their families can hardly be considered cowards.
However...A large group of men that would drag an individual out of his vehicle and attempt to stomp him could easily be described as cowards!
NEWS FLASH GENIUS:
It doesn't take much thinking to figure out that setting up a picket line costs many people money too.
Many more people than are affected by the guy crossing the picket line.
If I have a load that has to be delivered and you have your little picket line set up...I will cross it!
Funny how the union guys always resort to criminal acts in an effort to get their point across...Wouldn't it be ironic if the truck that you sabatoged in the morning was the very same truck that crashed into and killed your family in the afternoon?
Victims of your foolish act.
There is a distinct difference between a union and an association...
A union uses collective bargaining and more often than not force backed up with violence to negotiate and stongarm businesses to provide wages and benefits to their employess at the rates that they demand.
(You union guys can bleat all you want to about how it's just a business thing and there isn't any union provoked violence...But I have seen it too many times to buy into the lie)
An association such as the OOIDA represents a group of individuals and/or businesses in the political and legal arenas to assist them in creating a better business environment in which to operate.
If I run my business poorly and lose customers the OOIDA isn't going to force or attempt to force my customers to reinstate me, However a union will threaten all sorts of problems for a business that attempts to remove a non productive worker regardless of the situation.
The unions are so weak these days and their membership is so small that you could not generate enough business to keep a company such as that open...
