The Koch Brothers are pitting working folks against one another.

No brains and they have their heads so far up their back door that they can't see for the darkness .

Stay away from the light don't go near the light ! For if you do you'll be able to see the truth of life !

That and their a bunch of cowardly trolls !

Do people remember what it was like before Unions?

Most likely not, but it was well known that Corporations willingly paid their workers poorly, and put them in dangerous work places making worker mortality much higher than it is these days.

I'm forever grateful to those Unions who were called "communists" merely because they wanted to be treated with dignity and fairly.

Yes, you've listed some wonderful things that Unions have brought to the US labor market...

However, let's also remember that Unions then provided cover for 40+ years of Mob racketeering and pension raiding.
Unions also priced themselves right out of work in the auto, textile, and manufacturing industries.
State and Government unions have built themselves incredible cushy jobs where they can't be fired.

I'm curious if Unions are SUCH good things... and as some above have claimed "a basic human right"... WHY won't liberals ever permit the US Military to unionize ??

Koch Brothers and Rupert Murdoch are trying to edit history to say that minimum wages, and weekends, and all those things were created out of the goodness of the hearts of the Tycoons.

Luckily, we can see through their BS.

Also, they're propagating the nonsense that somehow money still belongs to the employer after the paycheck has been signed.

A) There's absolutely no truth whatsoever to any of your claims, you're just parroting easily-debunked propaganda that's refused to die since Marx first sat down to pen his totalitarian dogma.

B) What Unions ACTUALLY do is steal a large portion of the worker's money, which they then either pocket themselves, or donate to Left Wing politicians (which is the real reason people like you do so much to cover for them) who do everything they can to ensure the Big Labor racket continues. To say nothing of the fact that they deliberately keep workplaces unsafe, because they need to perpetually justify their own existence, and because they protect the jobs of lazy and unsafe workes because all that matters is that the Union get a chunk of their paychecks.
