Heard about the Verizon union strike? It’s going about where you’d expect.
“We don’t do that, and nobody in the union leadership supports any of that,’’
Apparently the cables cut their own throats shortly after the strike started. Coincidence!
The union is, of course, claims to be the victim here.
…the CWA said it has received nearly two dozen reports of Verizon picketers being hit or narrowly missed by company vehicles driven by Verizon managers or non-union workers.
Obviously union picketers are playing chicken with traffic in hopes of terrorizing “scabs” or actually causing wrecks. Oh, does that seem cynical?
In theory, private sector unions would be acceptable organizations as long as they weren’t granted a monopoly. Any other group or individual would be free to compete against them, just like everyone else in a free economy. Of course, they wouldn’t be competitive either.
Unions are foul, and they turn people foul. They should be as reviled as any other bloated plutocrat robbing the public via monopoly.
UPDATE–Have you no shame, Grandma?
