Don't like your organized labor outlook.


Business runs with land, capital, and labor. In GOP thinking, the main thing is to do this as cheaply as possible. That is fine for the first two. But keeping workers pay as low as possible is not good. Sure, there are union abuses (remember featherbedding?) but unions helped so many get to the middle class. As union influence has gone down, wealth disparity has gone up. I like that teachers, auto workers, police, etc. can have decent incomes. GOP thought is that they should make as little as possible so those at the top will do what? Get uber wealthy and start another business that pays low wages (but at least workers keep working)?
