What's the difference between the KKK and unions?

You can reason with the KKK.

Really? Really? That's the joke you try to make? How exactly are unions like a racist hate group that has been known to kill people simply because they weren't white protestants? Catholics, blacks, gays and Jews frown on your stupidity

Yup, that picture proves it: labor unions are utterly indistinguishable from the Ku Klux Klan. They're pretty much the same as NAMBLA too, now that I think about it. And the Tea Party is basically the Justice League of America.

That's right. People who have never known the horror of having to go home and explain that they are going to have health insurance, even though you tried your best. And the look on the faces of your kids when you learn that the job creators are going to have to do without so that they can have some stupid toys.

And it's all because of some evil union.

See, that's funny because you use an edited version of a guy who was trolling an already angry crowd. He got the footage he came for. Now he can get a paid spot on O'Reilly and keep the cycle of misinformation going.

Evidently, you are easily fooled. Hence, your political leanings.

I'll bite. Okay, so there are small occasions where union members literally fight back. But that still doesn't equate them to a group that spent a century trying to kill off those uppity blacks because...well, they're black and didn't know their place apparently. Just because you want a better working life, doesn't mean that you are equivalent to a bunch of racist farks who can't get over the thought that they lost a war and blame anyone for the loss

Cythraul: Frustrated on their losses on a national level, this thread will bring in all the conservative trolls of Fark to brag about a state-level victory. Kinda pathetic.


And the state level is where a lot of the decisions are made that affect people's local taxes. It doesn't get the major-network coverage of national politics, and it doesn't get the hyperlocal coverage of localized media (unless that media is actually in the state capital city). As a result it's easier for crooks, weasels and fark-ups to get away with a lot more than they could were they higher up or lower down the political food chain: if you're a state legislator who's up to something ethically questionable, as a state legislator you're also in the perfect position to make whatever you were up to either legal or not subject to disclosure. Read up on Sheldon Silver for more on how it's done. He's been the most powerful man in New York for over 15 years, but chances are you don't know who he is unless you're a NY politics geek.

I remember when the talking point was, 'public sector union are bad, but private sector unions are just fine'

I'm not the least bit surprised to see that evolve into unions are just like the nazis and the kkk

ever wonder if the Fox news propaganda is dangerously effective just look for the blue collar anti-union pro billionaire tax break crowd.

On a serious note, while I'm in favour of unions, I'm not in favour of institutionalized unions. I also don't think you should have to be a member of a union to work in a work-place, although you may find it to your advantage. You should have the option, not the requirement. Discuss.

It's difficulty to form strong unions when people can opt-out so easily, from what I've heard. Being from a right-to-work state where unions are hard to come by, I'm not too educated on this issue. But I do remember what it was like in the country before worker's rights were a 'thing.'

I think worker's rights should just be codified in the constitution, but I'm sure that's just crazy socialism talk.

If you're not going to work for a union, then you shouldn't get the benefits of being in a union. If individual workers really had to negotiate their own pay and benefits like the proponents claim they do, they would suddenly discover why collective bargaining is such a good idea.

Absent a private org with the strength to do it, the government will end up stepping in to meet the demand. The GOP is only ensuring greater federal control over the states with their actions.

All the law did was ban compulsory dues. If the workers like the union, it should be no problem getting the workers to pay for it.
