I recall times/days in the early 1930s when my mother was working for 3-4 dollars a week. My father had died a few years earlier and left a mortgage for our home. My mother would come home all torn up emotionally because the union organizers were on her back giving her a hard time because she was doing piece work to get some food money. I have never forgotten the thuggery of the union organizing members. This is not to say that workers in those days did not need some organization to better their working conditions. However, I saw the need for unions fading out in the WWII when the need was for national survival instead of setting up socially destructive union bosses. Times have changed and there should not be any unions that operate outside of public, not administrators or crooked politicians, authority. This applies to all public unions including firemen, police people, and so called government employees/servants.

So sad when people are just trying to feed their kids (my grandfather had 10). So many of those thugs have no compassion; “it’s all about me” Many of the teachers care only about getting all they can for themselves and couldn’t care less for the people who are really suffering. I have a cousin who has worked for Kelloggs and make unbelievable money, yet every few years they have to ask for more; it’s never enough.
