When is the conversation going to switch from union wages, to mimimum wages, to survival wages?

3-5 years I expect, with a huge pool of skilled worker unemployed willing to do anything, loyalty from a company is unlikely.

Agree or Strongly Agree

    The irony is this:

    Private sector employees used to make MUCH more than public sector employees. Private industry has driven wage and benefits down to such an incredibly low level, that they've been able to turn poorly paid private sector employees against poorly paid public sector employees, in order to further drive down wages. We are witness to this, in Wisconsin.

    That's going to happen regardless of what happens with the Unions. Reigning in the public sector Unions' costs are only a way of slowing that down. In case you haven't noticed, the Country, most States, and many Towns and Counties are broke or near broke. We're all going to be in the same boat, pretty much. Better hone any skills that are of use to people. That will be the only bargaining tool most people will have.

    Loyalty? A company is created for one reason.......to make money, not to create jobs, or to show loyalty and affection to its workers. In order for the company to stay competitive it must attract good skilled labor and it does this by offering competitive salaries and benefits. I don't see where loyalty enters the equation.

    Everyone else is doing it. Unions have no right being exempt and expecting the rest of us to pay for their special beneifits, when we don't get them. Blame Obama. He's a serial job killer.
