The unions are up to it again, bashing every non-union workplace they can find. In the most recent issue of the local UAW newsletter they proudly bash a local store chain as well as Marc’s and Walmart. Here’s what ticks me off the most, this local store chain is HIRING and I’m trying to find a job there, among other places. For people like me, who have no jobs and are looking for anything right now, the stinkin’ union is doing more harm than good. But that is typical of the union. Unions have for the longest time been looking out for themselves and themselves alone. To heck with the unemployed, to heck with their own company as long as they can suck the blood out before it dies.
But the hypocrisy part comes in above the plea to not shop at non-union shops. In BIG, BOLD letters is the statement “SUPPORT AMERICAN WORKERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON”. Now isn’t that the height of hypocrisy? They would have you believe that the union has a monopoly on American workers? What a crock! American workers are by and large NON-UNION. Perhaps the ad should have stated “SUPPORT OUR FAT CAT UNION BOSS AND HIS CRONIES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON”.
Now I don’t mind if they say to support unionized markets or whatever. Really I don’t. It’s their free speech right to do so. Sure I think that unions pretty much foul up everything their hands touch but that’s their prerogative. However, when they basically advocate a boycott against a reputable, respectful business that is HIRING in a bad economy, you can be #@&! sure that I’m ticked off. There are a lot of people that would love to have a job from this small business and couldn’t care less if there was a dang union involved. If people boycott this business, that means less profit for the company and as a result fewer or no hiring. When was the last time the stinkin’ union employed somebody? Or wait, the employment comes from the companies that they screw. That’s why they call them union ‘members’ rather than union ’employees’; because the union doesn’t hire ANYBODY! So if you want to talk to me about supporting American workers, I’ll do it. I’ll shop at that business that’s hiring. In fact I’ll do it just to stick my thumb in the eye of the union boss.
Americans need to realize that the unions are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the liberal/progressive movement. They may have served a purpose years ago, but they’ve long since stopped looking out for the working man. I’d trust the CEO nowadays more than the union boss. Shame on the UAW for bashing a employer that actually treats his workers right, WITHOUT THE UNION THUGS!
