UNIONISM: SIGNING YOUR OWN DEATH WARRANT
Any rational person will realize that unions are the creation of those who promote collectivism over individualism. The very nature of IT innovation is based on one or more creative, talented individuals -- not a committee. The thought that one should advance to a position or be eligible for perks based upon seniority instead of merit is an anathema to those with talent. Most union contracts insure mediocrity, bloated budgets and the loss of control over non-performing or malfeasant personnel. Why should your money be used to support a single party that may not be of your choosing? Why should your money be used to support bosses who live like top executives without corresponding effort? Why should you cede control over your employer to an outside organization that is politically-motivated and cares only about their welfare? And then there is that little thing about thuggery and organized crime that seems to pop-up from time-to-time. It seems to me that resisting unionization is necessary to help America recover. Look what unionization did to General Motors and the auto industry (now a pension fund with an automotive company attached). Look what public employee unions did to our cities and schools. You can't afford to allow creeping Marxism (with the collective and all that) to gain a foothold in IT without disastrous consequences.
