About the United Auto Workers and Unions

You readers know how I feel about Unions. Their time has passed. The United Mine workers are a perfect example. A dwindling membership because the welfare of workers is not the number one priority anymore. Instead of taking my union dues cash and investing it in my pension, they throw that money to political campaigns and parties. The union employees are over paid and corruption is included in every aspect of their existence.

The unions believe all workers are equal. As a man that has worked since I was 14 (summer youth employment program) one thing I do know as a fact is that "all workers are equal" is bullshit. A few years ago I wrote that Union jobs create mediocrity. Bristol Herald Courier blogger Jody Lee has a great little video that sums it up here. Take a few minutes to watch Jody tell it like it is! Then look at the big three auto companies and compare them to the others and you will see why those Honda, Toyota, Nissan workers vote the unions out 99% of the time. Unions kill the spirit of the worker and that shows in the product or service they represent. After my last involvement with the United Mine Workers I vowed I would never pay union dues again. That was about 8 years ago and I still have not changed my mind. Unions are no longer about the benefits of the worker. They are all about politics and cash....lots of cash earned with labor, given to a political party that may or may not fit your beliefs. As a worker walks a picket line starving and losing everything he or she owns, that union organizer's pay check keeps on rolling in on time. As the workers sacrifice, the union employee profits, his pension grows as yours declines. My brothers keeper indeed.

Dead on the money, I'm from Maine a state ridden with the cancer of the paper mill unions and what you've expressed is what occured there. These unions have got to go.

Carl, as you may know, union workers do not have to pay the proportion of dues that goes toward politicking or anything else other than core union functions (e.g. collective bargaining). I recommend that union workers interested in exercising this right contact National Right to Work for help.
