“The late Sen. Paul Tsongas (D-MA) once said, “You cannot redistribute wealth you never created. You can’t be pro-jobs and anti-business at the same time. You cannot love employment and hate employers.”
I would have never believed that those words would have come out of the mouth of any democrat in the last 30 years, but there have seldom been more true words spoken.
By and large, the time for labor unions in America has come and gone. While in a few cases they may still serve a purpose, they mostly serve to advance the cause of the unions more than the workers they supposedly represent, while damaging businesses and ultimately the economy. How does it help employees when you destroy the employer and the jobs they create?
As much of a failure as unions are in the modern economic arena, they are an even worse idea when it comes to national defense. Yet now the idiots at TSA (Thousands Standing Around; Touching Sensitive Areas; Totally Senseless Administration) are going to be allowed to unionize.
“This will be President Obama’s biggest gift to organized labor,” Representative John L. Mica, Republican of Florida and chairman of the House Transportation Committee, said in a statement, adding that it was “all bad news for the traveler, the taxpayer and aviation security” because it would limit the flexibility of the agency, despite assurances from Mr. Pistole that it would not.
The agency has traditionally ranked low in surveys of federal workers that assess morale and job satisfaction, a ranking that Mr. Pistole hopes will improve if the workers are allowed to join a union that bargains on their behalf.
You can’t possibly tell me that this is a good idea and beneficial to airport, airline, and passenger security.
Yet ANOTHER union/organized labor payoff by Obama.
