Unions

Once upon a time unions were necessary. Times have changed; when a business suffers from the outrageous salaries, benefits, and protection granted to less than adequated employees its time to liquidate and close your doors rather than to allow the union to control your business. I've worked in union facilities and have to say the employees were the laziest, selfish, most negative group of people I ever encountered ever... Pull the plug let them try to replace their salaries. I can't be done.
