  • Cause major outsourcing. More than there already is. No smart business man will have a union in his company when he can move to another country and have cheaper labor and lower employment standards.

  • I AM A BUSINESS OWNER.........

    You don't need a union in small mom and pop businesses like bakeries and/or beauty shops.
    If people don't like the conditions, leave.
    Unions try to make professions "SPECIALIZED" that aren't.
    How specialized is baking a loaf of bread?
    If I'm a small business owner, why do I have to pay you 16 dollars an hour to bake a loaf of bread, when the next guy can do it for $9.00/ an hour?
    Would make bread very expensive.
    If he wants more, let him run a friggin' bakery, IF HE CAN!
    At $9.00 an hour/ he doesn't need 3 weeks a year vacation as stipulated by some union idiot.
    The poor owner can't even do that!
    Unions are evil and not biblical.
    And they suck.

  • Ummmm
    Unions are historically Democrats and Democrats historically support illegal immigrants so I doubt that would ever happen. But if they did I'd shake their hands. The less illegals we have here the better.

  • Do you think that blanket amnesty is the Dems way of gaining a one party America?

  • LOL.. This is a double edge sword for Liberal politicians. If Obama enacts EFCA, this could lower the number of jobs available for illegals. If he doesn't, illegal jobs could be spared.

    I would hope that EFCA doesn't pass and we work harder as a nation to discourage illegals from coming into our nation and streamline the process to make those who are here, legal.

  • unions could, but I bet instead they'll push for membership and rights for illegals
