If we could just reverse the Union movement in America, would we be better off?

My twelve year old could carry a lamp in a mine, having weekends off is really over-rated, forcing companies to have safe work places (what good did that do the Miners anyway?) Company paid health care isn't necessary because in America everyone has the right to walk into a hospital for health care. Or just stay healthy. If you need a raise at General Motors just ask the president, if he wants to give you one, he will or you can quit for a better job.

If the unions go, how much better off would America be?

    Yes, company profit would be up due to lower wages and we would finally get that land of gentry Republicans talk about.

    The Union movement served a purpose but it needs to be reformed as it stands today. Union work rules need to be reformed and some union workers, such as teachers and other public employees in places like NJ, NY, and Calif., make way too much money. In addition, many federal workers are lazy slugs who make too much.

    Reverse? No. Labor laws aren't the problem with unions. The problem with unions is they are no longer concerned with average working American's. They are no less corrupt than private businesses and sometimes offer even less benefits, while fooling their employees in to thinking they couldn't have it better elsewhere.

    .It is not that anyone would want to reverse the Union movement. It is the corruption and interjection of Organized Crime into said movement that is the problem.

    good point, the masses waste far too much of their trivial lives with family, friends, loved ones etc..., which could be used producing goods and services etc....

    Since most unions jobs are in the public sector that would be a welcome change.
