Someone posted a story the other day that Union MEMBERS (everyday folk like you and me) are some of the most basic God and Country -loving people there are...
So why would they allow their union leaders to align them with the most anti-American communist god-hating homo supporting democrats?
I THINK THIS COULD BE A WATERSHED moment IF WE ASK ALL OF THEM THAT!!!
What does homo-loving and god-hating have to do with union’s protections of workers rights
Well, I believe God fearing Republicans shouldn’t waste the moment and just let them flounder forever.
Unions, as all neutral things, can be used for ill or for good, to court bane or to receive blessing. It was putting man first and God anywhere else in the pecking order that got unions and everything else in a mess! Because man is spiritual and can’t stand alone anyhow... that was true in the Garden of Eden and it’s true now. That ole devil snickers in the corner that he’s got um. Until God’s salvation is accepted then watch that devil scurry, though not without spouting the biggest clouds of lies he can. It is a battle scene, it is a challenge scene. But when approached in the courage of God, it ALWAYS is a victory scene.
In answer to your query about why people join and follow unions. In 1967 and 68 when I was in college I worked summers as a laborer in NYC for Local 731 Int’l Laborers and Hod carriers. I was paid $4.75/hr. A good wage and better than most college kids got back then. If you go to inflation calculator you will find that $4.75 then is $33.22 today, but members of 731 make $41.29 plus $26 in benefits/hr. Given that construction has weather related down times the laborer still can make $75K-$85K per year plus benefits. And the laborer is at the bottom of the construction wage scale in NYC. Carpenters, electricians, wire lathers, ironworkers make more. The non union guys are making $25-$30/hr with very minimal bennies in the area. That’s why people join and stay in unions. Oh and back in 67 I worked my tail off for those 9 weeks and the guys I know who are 731 laborers today still do. One final thought. In May 1970 I and 100K other hardhats marched in support of President Nixon and the troops in Viet Nam in the hardhat parade. No one complained about us being union members then.
