If someone does not want to belong to a union, why would they go to a place that has a union?
Steel, I agree with your statement ""You're not forced to work or stay at a job you're unhappy with. You're free to leave anytime.""
So if you do not like the UNION, you have the right to quit and move on.
""No one should be forced to join any organization,pay dues if they don't feel it's in their best interest.""
Again I agree with you. No one is forcing a person to work at a unionized place. They can look for employement else where.

Its funny how unions are to blame when companies close. I wonder if GE will be like Hostess/Wonderbread. We are closing business, can't afford to pay our employess, OH WAIT we want to give EXECUTIVES bonuses.
Hostess To Pay $1.75 Million In Executive Bonuses After Blaming Unions For Bankruptcy
Hostess Brands, the maker of sweet snacks like Twinkies that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week, will ask a bankruptcy judge today to approve a plan that will allow it to pay $1.75 million in bonuses to 19 of its executives.
Congress never questioned the Banks when bailout money was given. However when money was given to GM, Congress said GM exec's should not fly to Washington since they are broke. I bet Congress still flies to Washington, even though the Country is broke.

I cannot believe the GM haters are so quiet on this thread. With so many recalls recently on Toyotas and Hondas. If GM has a recall there would be numerous folks bashing GM.

UTICA Says..""there are those fractivist who live in their mother's basement who fantasize about ways to add meaning to their uneventful lives and many times are regurgitating Russian and Arab propaganda to suppress our energy discovery.""
Please Mr Utica please add some facts that these posters live in basements. You sir should stand behind your own words. If someone says something about the gas industry that you do not agree with, you simply try to degrade them. Grow up man. Again give some FACTS about these people living in basements.

The Repub Congress wrote the bill. The Republican Speaker ( Boehner) brought the bill to the floor. The Republican Congress passed the bill.
But, the Repubs still blame Obama.
It is ALL of them Senate, Congress and the President.

Congress started the new year with an even lower approval rating than it had in 2012.
Congress ended 2012 with a 15 percent average approval rating -- its lowest yearly average in history, according to Gallup. The legislative branch of government began 2013 with a 14 percent approval rating, Gallup found.
A poll earlier this week by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found that Congress was less liked than genocidal warlord Genghis Khan, cockroaches and rock band Nickelback.
"In the broadest sense, one bit of good news for the new Congress is that its current job approval ratings are so low that they have practically nowhere to go but up," Gallup's Frank Newport said.
The most recent poll, taken a week after the end of fiscal cliff negotiations, is fresh evidence that Americans are unimpressed with how Congress handled the issue.
Republicans bore the brunt of disapproval on the fiscal cliff, facing not only enmity from Democrats, but from their own party.

Very nice letter written.
Johnson voted for the sequester..... Boehner voted and PRAISED the sequester.
Republicans Had Praised Sequestration EarlierIn 2011, however, Boehner was among the Republican leaders who expressed support for the Budget Control Act and voted in favor of it. "When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the White House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted," Boehner said in 2011. "I'm pretty happy."
The Budget Control Act including the sequestration cuts passed in the House with 174 Republicans voting in favor, including Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and U.S. Rep. and 2012 vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.
