i dont care what you do or think, i'm only responding because it's something to do and you put it out there.

that said, it sounds/reads like you begrudgingly joined and just prior you do say "Pretty much anti-union" ...and thats fine, i'm not trying to say you must like unions and i'm not taking a shot at you!

was IMA's comment needed? probably not but on the other hand who cares

I was making a joke, albeit at your expense. I just think no one here is going to be shocked to find out you are anti union. Unions have certainly done some shady stuff, but the good far out weighs that and I think we need stronger unions right now at a time where workers rights have been severely eroded.

Like all things it seems like consolidating power leads to more corruption. I wonder if we had more numerous and more specialized unions if some of the less desirable things that happen with a union would be tempered and more benefits would come from it.

Also, am I the only who sees the NRA and the AARP as essentially unions?

You said you were anti-union.


I don't get people who constantly [expletive] about government corruption and waste, rail against unions and "union bosses", but think corporations shouldn't be held responsible for the ridiculous amounts of malfeasance they commit on behalf of their shareholders. It's [expletive] lunacy.

They were supposed to be rivals across the bargaining table, one jockeying for the best deal for Fiat Chrysler, the other pushing for a good contract for autoworkers.

Instead, the FBI says, former Fiat Chrysler executive Al Iacobelli and the late UAW Vice President General Holiefield were scheming to enrich themselves, jet-setting and buying luxury watches, jewelry, a Ferrari and $37,500 Mont Blanc pens with money that was supposed to help train autoworkers.

The top negotiators did this, authorities allege, by secretly funneling FCA money through a UAW training center and a fake children's charity, ultimately spending it on themselves. They pulled it off with the help of an FCA financial analyst who cooked the books, they say, and ignored a warning years ago that they could "go to jail" for their misdeeds.
Quote:
Holiefield, who died in 2015, was the senior UAW official responsible for negotiating contracts with Fiat Chrysler on behalf of the union.

Detroit’s FBI chief David P. Gelios went so far Wednesday as to say the indictment “calls into question the integrity of contracts negotiated during the course of this criminal conspiracy.”

I don't remember taking a strong stand for the idea that corporations shouldn't be held responsible for the ridiculous amounts of malfeasance they commit on behalf of their shareholders, but I guess it can be implied because all conservatives are crooked.

Fairly predictable response. Instead why don't you tell why you oppose unions.
