Unions used to represent 35 percent of the workers in our country
They now only represent 7 percent.
They are not responsible for the financial issues our states are facing (and WI is a perfect example).
Let's be real, republicans have demonized them because they rep the worker and not the CEO. So in what way are they too powerful?
Well in WI teachers can cause sick outs denying kids their educations, causing parents to miss work or pay money for child care that, they may not have so they can keep their jobs, violate their labor contracts and still have a job in the morning........ That to me is to much power.

I think the idea of unions is great. In fact, if unions could be reasonable I would like to see more of them. But unions are no longer concerned with the workers. They are concerned with themselves, and they use the workers. They are willing to have huge layoffs rather than accept reasonable changes to their contracts in order that more workers can keep their jobs. They bankruptcompanies that employ their workers with ridiculous demands, thereby putting all their workers at risk of losing their positions. These things don't support the worker. They endanger the worker. Unions are supposed to be collective bargaining organizations that give the worker power not to be taken advantage of. But they have become bullies who don't realize that win-win bargaining is better for the worker.
