My experience with unions & big business is the USPS... One of the biggest most unbelievably mis managed organizations...
Yeah - cause my 42 year old family member that is Union at USPS driving a delivery truck makes a 6 figure salary. You are right, not the unions fault. It is impossible to make a profit when you pay the workers over 2x as much as "they are worth". There are tons of people that would take a delivery job for even $40K.

Can't be fired cause he is Union and he loves it. Keeps the job and bank. He is a good worker, and definitely works hard, but still over payed for what he does IMO..

I hope you're aware that this is happening because the workers went on strike. If they wanted their jobs so badly, they would have kept working and none of this would have happened in the first place.

that's because the news favors democrats. it's like the chicago teacher strike when the average $75k/yr wasn't enough. they want eyeballs so nobody goes out of their way to piss off the majority (poor people)

Shutdown on hold now, a judge is going to mediate talks between the company and a union.
