15 years ago +/- I watched a union member in Spokane bemoaning the fact that Alcoa was closing it's Spokane plant. He was telling the reported he had worked there for 18 years and the had gone on strike 3 times and now the plant was leaving. He would not understand the idiocy of his comments.

It almost sounds like he thought his time on the picket line was some kind of investment in his future job security.

Come to think of it, he may actually have been told that by his union leadership, and been stupid enough to believe it.

A WA Republican (one of the few) just said he wanted to introduce a right to work law. Governor (tax break for corp coronisim) Insley, said “no way”
