I loved it when I went to Michigan for NAIAS last year. OK, get this, Michigan has the highest unemployment in the country (primarily because of the automakers), and yet everywhere you looked you saw "Help Wanted" signs... But it was all retail, fast food, service, jobs that any self-respecting Union member was "too good" to do. Ridiculous.
There's only two things Unions are good at in this day-and-age, demanding dues from their members and driving the companies they work for in to the ground. Laughing all the way to the bank meanwhile.
