Quote:The concept of unions is a noble one, however, in reality they are inefficient and merely drive up labor costs for corporations. Â I was involved in import/export for quite some time, and the practices of dockworkers especially in the long beach area are ridiculous. Â Their average wages exceed $100k and most of them spend alot of time lounging around. Â This is not what was intended when unions were founded. Â At this point I think unionization in the US has become a liability to our corporations, and if we want to compete in a global market, we need to move ahead. Â The trend away from unionization began in the 80s and 90s and IMO will continue.
