243. what we're up against
I was in the steelworkers in the 70's and was in a UE organizing drive in the 90's. I have and still do survive in non union shops. I have had my car vandalized, had my family harrassed, and have been physically confronted by company paid goons. These people do not care about your delicate naieve sense of fairness and decency. They will do whatever it takes to break labor, up to and iincluding having you bumped off if they can get away with it. In the light of what. These SOBs have been doing I feel Mr. Hoffas words were too gentle.
