3. More good from unions. It had struck me before I found this, why I dislike anti-union people.

Because I consider them to be cowardly. Unions have bled for this country, do jobs that are often thankless, stressful and in other ways dangerous to life and limb.

I have never been let down by a good union member. They have decency, and are willing to pay the price for doing the right thing for everyone.

Anti-unionist kiss the ass of management or the rich, rejoicing over the pat on the head and the crumbs. They have no respect for themselves.

When their boss screws them, they find someone to blame who has been outspoken, and when things go right, they ride their coattails to the benefits. But they won't face up to the powerful and take the inevitable lickings.

I'm not talking about those who never had a chance to join, never were able to get into a job that unions made decent. I'm talking about those who have never thought this through, just listen to what their bosses tell them and cower like dogs with their tails between their legs. Then lash out at their fellows who are union and stand for all.
